Annotation -
The course will orient students to the topic of Chemical Cybernetics, guide them through the structure of the program and its courses, and outline possible paths for the student's future studies, including the choice of thesis options and how to complete their studies. The course includes introducing students to the available software and hardware resources and laboratories, as well as the research groups involved in teaching the program. The seminars also include a session featuring invited talks by external experts in the field of cybernetics, as well as field trips and exercises in the robotics laboratories of the collaborating departments. The second half of the course consists of the first independent work in which the student performs the control of a simple system.
