Dean's Message

           Welcome to the college of Control Science and Engineering (CSE) in Zhejiang University!

The CSE college was founded in 1956. For more than 50 years, we CSE people have built a history of excellence in education and discovery, and our college is now one of the most prestigious research and education bases in the area of industrial process control in China. National and international research labs and centers are instituted in our CSE college , which includes the institute of industrial process control, the institute of automatic instrumentation, the institute of cyber-systems and control, the state key laboratory of industrial control technology, the national engineering research center for industrial automation, and an experiment and teaching center for automation. The CSE  college currently has over 120 faculty members with 40 full professors and research fellows, which includes 1 academician of China National Engineering Research Institute,2winners for the National Science Fund for Distinguished Young Scholars, 2 distinguished professors for Chang Jiang (Cheung Kong) Scholars Program. Our current student enrollment has about 400 Undergraduate, 400 Master’s and 200 Doctoral.

In the general area of industrial process control, our CSE  college  in ZJU has become a leading force in China, also edged into the advanced ranks in the world. We have made significant contributions to fulfill the national economic and social development demands, and to advance the overall level of the industrial process automation in China. Various awards such as Scientific Technology Progress Award are received annually in both national and provincial level. The core areas of our research and project activity include: (1)Theoretic research on control science: fundamental research on the theories and methodologies of variable structure control, control of large time-delay systems, adaptive control, predictive control, intelligent control, etc; fundamental research on the methodologies and technology of system modeling. (2) Automation instrumentation and related systematic research: theoretic research and related technology; instruments development on fieldbus technology; intelligent instruments; technology of industrial control networking; novel measuring and detection technology; testing system; and reliability technology. (3) Research on systems engineering and optimization: practical optimization methods and technology, decision support, supply chain, neural networks, data rectification, data mining, and research on theories, methods, and technology of the “whole solutions to integrated automatic systems of process-based industrial enterprises”. (4) Research on robotics technology: intelligent robotic system, multi-agent system, real-time pattern recognition and behave system, real-time planning and reasoning, micro-sensor and micro-actuators.
