About the Institute

Indian Institute of Space Science & 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 has the unique mandate of encouraging and equipping brilliant youngsters from all parts of the country to take up career as Scientist/Engineer in Indian Space Research Organization. IIST functions as an autonomous body under the Department of Space, Government of India.

Organizing Department

The Avionics Department offers a four year B.Tech Programme in Electronics and Communication  Engineering which gives technical excellence in all areas of Avionics engineering such as Digital System Design, Digital communication, VLSI Design, Navigation, Guidance and Control, Digital System Design, Computer Technology and Power Electronics. In addition, the department offers M.Tech in RF and Microwave Communication, Digital Signal Processing, Control Systems, Power Electronics 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 and its design is an indispensable part of any engineering system and 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 about the basics of  Automatic Control Systems and its applications using MATLAB/SIMULINK.  There will be hands-on  lab sessions involving MATLAB/SIMULINK programming and remaining hours will be devoted for invited lectures by experts from IIST, VSSC and other ISRO labs. A visit to ISRO Space Museum and an opportunity to witness Sounding Rocket Launch has also been arranged as part of this programme.

Tentative course topics include
  • Fundamentals of Control Sustems Engineering with MATLAB/SIMULINK (Time domain analysis,  Frequency  domain analysis, Root locus, Compensator design etc.)
  • Launch Vehicle Control Systems
  • Optical control and Space applications
  • Industrial Sensors and Analog/Digital-Interfacing Techniques
  • Modern control and safety systems in modern civil aircraft
  • Introduction to Missile Control System Design
Course Fee
  • Rs. 6000 for Faculty members, Research Scholars and Students.
  • Rs. 8000 for Scientists, Engineers from ISRO and other Industrial participants.
Target Audience

The course is open to interested students, teachers from Engineering Colleges / Technical Universities / Deemed Universities, Research Scholars, Scientists, Engineers and other interested participants from Industries. A basic exposure to MATLAB/SIMULINK and Dynamic Systems is preferable.
