Muhammad Wasim, "Airship Autonomous Control", PhD


Center for Industrial IT and Control (CIITCA) was established in 2005 in EED as a funded project by HEC. Prof(R). Dr. M. A. Choudhry was the founding director of the center. The center hosts three laboratories of EED:

1. Basic Control Lab 

2. Advanced Control Lab

3. Industrial Automation Lab


Control systems research group at EED naturally takes interest in the broad area of theory and control of systems. Our current focus is mainly in the following:

LPV control, identification and applications, Fractional Order control, ILC, Intelligent control
