Unfortunately, this item is not available in your country.


Control Engineering provides a basic yet comprehensive introduction to the subject of control engineering for both mechanical and electrical engineering students. It is well written, easy to follow and contains many examples to reinforce understanding of the theory.

This second edition has undergone a substantial revision in order to appeal to both branches of engineering but still serves as a basic introduction that does not venture into unnecessary depth, and does not assume too much of the reader.
