About the profession

The rapid development of technical means in the twentieth century predetermined the emergence of a new profession – a specialist in control technology. The creation of electronic computers in the 1940-ies and their continuous improvement observed to this day have become a decisive factor for the formation of a new profession as one of the most sought-after ones. Today, specialists in control systems are engaged in solving a wide range of tasks, such as computer-integrated manufacturing, design and creation of systems of control of transport, ships, aircraft, including unmanned aircraft, the creation of measuring and control devices, the creation of recognition systems, the development of gas distribution systems, as well as the systems of automation of nuclear power plants and spacecraft, etc.

Training process:

During classes a student is an active participant in group and individual projects, interactive and case study methods, video conferencing and webinars. The laboratory and research work of students is carried out in specialized scientific training laboratories equipped with modern equipment, among which a laboratory with industrial robots of the Japanese concern Kawasaki should be mentioned. These robots are used for cargo transfer and manipulation, applying adhesive and sealant on the surface of parts. As part of lab practicals, students master the basic principles of control and programming of industrial robotic manipulators by the example of KawasakiFS03N robot group. The profession-oriented material is learnt through the following disciplines:

  • Automatic control theory
  • Programming and algorithmization basics
  • Optimization methods
  • Automation and control systems
  • Mechatronics
  • System modeling
  • Mathematical fundamentals of cybernetics
  • Databases in information management systems
  • Telecommunications systems


Students are given the opportunity to undertake industrial-technological internships, which are based on the organization and planning of industrial-technological activities, collection, processing, analysis and systematization of the planet-scale scientific technical information. As part of the internship, students gain experience in the use of standard professional software products focused on solving design, technological and scientific tasks. The internship is conducted in research laboratories, research centers, including in the Earth Remote Sensing Center of the Institute of Space Technologies of the Engineering Academy of RUDN University (IST EA RUDN) and the Flight Control Training Center of the IST EA RUDN, as well as at industrial enterprises, in IT companies and research centers.

Career opportunities:

If you want a career in science, you can continue working in the scientific field and be engaged in developing modern tools for automation, design and creation of control and information processing systems in various fields of technology and production.
You will easily adapt to working in the field of computer-integrated manufacturing, design and creation of robotic and intelligent systems for aerospace, engineering, energy and other industries and your career advancement will be determined by your own ambitions.
