What is Controls Engineering?

Controls Engineering, also referred to as Control Engineering or Control Systems Engineering, is the field of engineering that applies control theory to design systems with predictable outcomes. 

In practice, Controls Engineers utilize sensors that measures the output performance of the whatever device, machine or process is being controlled.  These measurements provide real-time and precise feedback to the input actuators that can make corrections toward the desired or optimum performance. 

Controls Engineering is recognized as a "multi-disciplinary" profession and the engineers focus much of their efforts on the implementation of control systems using mathematical modeling of these systems for a wide range of uses and applications.

What is a Building Automation System?

Building Automation Systems, also known as energy management systems - are an automated, computer-controlled method of controlling and managing the energy uses in a building to reduce and optimize energy expenses - at the same time maintaining a comfortable environment. Building Automation Systems are present in more than half of all buildings in the U.S. that are larger than 100,000 square feet.

Building Automation Systems may also include a Security Management System as well as a Fire Alarm System.
