“How are complex engineering systems controlled?”
In the modern world of engineering, devices and processes are no longer operated in a purely mechanical format. Instead, they now have a network of sensors and actuators that allow for programmable movement and operation. However, what exactly causes these systems to move? Well, after many years of incremental development, engineers have designed something known as control systems to manage all operations. Control systems are the programmable logic that allows engineering systems to operate. Engineers that work with control systems are known as control systems engineers.
