Automatic Control and System Dynamics



The Laboratory for Automatic Control and System Dynamics (ACSD) has established several cooperation with academic partners within the EU. ERASMUS+ framework strengthens this cooperation by enabling movement of students and research staff between the partner universities. Some of these possibilities are as listed below:

  1. Student Mobility for Studies (SMS): Students can study for a semester in the partner universities
  2. Student Mobility of Placement (SMP): Students can seek internships in the partner universities
  3. Staff Mobility for Teaching Assignment (STA): Research staff can take part in teaching programs in partner universities
  4. Staff Mobility for Training (STT): Research staff can take part in training programs in partner universities

For detailed information about the program please visit: Erasmus+.
