The Control Science and Dynamical Systems graduate program will not be accepting new applications, effective Fall 2010 term.
CURRICULUM: Student programs must emphasize modeling--mathematical and physical analyses of control and/or dynamical systems, with some computational or numerical expertise--and two areas selected from the following three: control theory for deterministic processes; stability theory and general analysis of dynamical systems; stochastic processes and information theory. Requirements for the Ph.D. program are dictated by the student and their faculty advisor, not the department. Each student must have 60 credits, l8 of which are to be completed in areas outside of the major focus. The University of Minnesota Graduate School Catalog contains information about all the fields of study and the various requirements that apply to all major fields. Coursework for the various disciplines are listed by individual departments in the catalog.
The University of Minnesota does not award a master's degree in control science and dynamical systems. Instead, students are encouraged to complete a master's degree in a related field of engineering or in computer science, mathematics, statistics or physics, prior to entering the CSDy program. Such master's degrees, with an emphasis in control science or dynamical systems, can be earned in any one of these fields at the University of Minnesota.
