Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology (IIST) is Asia’s first Space Institute and the first in the world to offer complete range of undergraduate, post graduate and doctoral programmes with specific focus to space science and technology. The institute provides a vibrant research atmosphere and offers B. Tech, M. Tech, Doctoral and postdoctoral programmes in the areas Avionics, Aerospace and Physical Science. The Institute has the unique mandate of encouraging and equipping brilliant youngsters from all parts of the country to take up a career as Scientist/Engineer in Indian Space Research Organization. IIST functions as an autonomous body under the Department of Space, Government of India.


The Avionics Department offers a four year B. Tech. Programme in Avionics which gives technical excellence in all areas of Avionics engineering such as Digital System Design, Digital communication, VLSI Design, Navigation, Guidance and Control, Computer Technology and Power Electronics. In addition, the department offers M.Tech in RF and Microwave Communication, Digital Signal Processing, Control Systems and VLSI & Microsystems. The department also offers Ph.D program in various disciplines of Avionics like Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.

Course Objectives

Control Systems is an indispensable part of any system and its design. It is common to different disciplines of engineering like Electrical, Mechanical, Electronics, Instrumentation, Chemical Engineering etc. The objective of this course is to educate the participants and enhance their skills in Automatic Control Systems and its applications. Hands-on lab sessions using MATLAB/SIMULINK will also be arranged. Further, some lead lectures, applications and case studies will also be taken up.

The course topics include
  • Launch Vehicle Control –Theory and case studies
  • Reusable Launch Vehicle/Aircraft modelling and controller Design
  • Digital Flight Control Systems Design
  • Robust Autopilot Design
  • Robotic Manipulator Control
