In many modern systems, computing elements are tightly connected with physical entities for which the term "cyber-physical systems" has been established in recent years. Examples are automated vehicles, surgical robots, smart grids, and collaborative human-robot manufacturing. After attending the course, students are able to model, analyse, and control cyber-physical systems at a level that enables them to continue deeper studies on their own.

Students are able to model cyber-physical systems and have a deep understanding of the interplay between continuous dynamics arising from physical entities (e.g. mechanical systems) and discrete dynamics originating from computing elements (e.g. discrete event control), leading to so-called hybrid dynamics. Students will be capable of designing, analysing, and controlling cyber-physical systems on a basic level. They can extract the relevant dynamical aspects of cyber-physical systems, discuss with experts on those and develop solutions on their own that meet given specifications.
