Control and Automation Laboratory

Laboratory Description

Control and Automation Laboratory is one of the laboratories in the Electrical Engineering Department, in particular, the Control Systems Engineering. Activities in this laboratory are designed based on the Tri Dharma of Higher Education (Education, Research and Community Service). For education, this laboratory provides lectures, practicum, and training services to students to deepen the concept of control engineering. In the field of research, this laboratory makes efforts to develop science in the field of control engineering which is expected not only to be the dream of the researchers but also to make a real contribution to society, especially in the industrial world. Community service activities can be carried out in the form of providing training to people who want to add insight into the concept and development of control system technology. In addition, many collaborations with the industrial world have been carried out for joint research, world of industry introduction to the students, and problem-solving consultations. With these various kinds of activities, it is expected that this laboratory can contribute to the scientific field and benefit the community more.
