Propulsion control systems is a highly specialized field requiring expertise in aircraft and engine dynamics, electrical systems design and analysis, and control theory. The propulsion control systems discipline involves the study, design, analysis, test, and verification of engine control systems and their integration with other aircraft systems.
This discipline supports projects such as new aircraft designed by Boeing and Airbus companies that are equipped with full authority digital electronic controls that govern engine performance in all phases of flight.Chief Scientific and Technical Advisor – Hals N. Larsen
