 The Control and Systems Engineering Department Holds a

Workshop Entitled (Reducing Drug Abuse among Youth)

The Division of Psychological Counseling and Educational Guidance

in the Control and Systems Engineering Department held

a workshop entitled (Reducing Drug Abuse among Youth) on Monday,

11/12/2023, to raise awareness among community members.

Lect. Dr. Aliaa Abul Redha Abbas delivered a speech,

which involved an introduction to the phenomenon and touched

on the most important social and psychological factors and the reasons

that led to drug abuse. In addition, the effects resulting from drug

abuse were highlighted and their causes were explained,

including the bad companions that young people resort

to after being exposed to family problems, psychological and social pressures,

and reasons related to the environmental factors.

The workshop also delved into potential solutions to reduce

the prevalence of this phenomenon, focusing on early detection

and strategies for mitigating its adverse impacts on society.

Discussion of a Master's Thesis

 Discussion of a Master's Thesis

The master’s thesis of the graduate student Zainab Nima Mahmoud,

majoring in Mechatronics engineering, was discussed on Monday,

12/4/2023. The discussion was held at Hall No.9

in the Control and Systems Engineering Department.

Her thesis was entitled: Optimal Adaptive Control

for Drilling Machine in Composite Material

The discussion committee consisted of:

1- Prof. Dr. Safana Mudhir Raafat / Chairman.

2- Asst. Prof. Dr. Maher Yahya Salloom / Member.

3- Asst. Prof. Evan Esho Korial / Member.

4- Asst. Prof. Dr. Hudhayfah Khalil Ibrahim / Member and Supervisor.

5- Asst. Prof. Shaima Mahmoud Mahdi / Member and Supervisor.

Due to the diversity in physical and chemical properties of composite

materials, understanding the dynamics of the etching

process within these materials is challenging. One of the major concerns

that arise from lack of control over the drilling process is

the occurrence of distortions around the drill, which can significantly

reduce the quality of the product. To address this, the present study

proposes a proportional integral-differential (PID) ideal controller

and a model reference adaptive control (MRAC) system method.

To improve the performance of the proposed controllers,

the study proposes the Particle Swarm Optimization Algorithm (PSO)

and the Flower Pollination Algorithm (FPA), in addition to the

Enhanced Flower Pollination Algorithm (EFPA) based on the Integral

Time Absolute Error (ITAE). Simulation results in MATLAB

confirm the superior performance of the proposed EFPA in contrast

to the FPA and PSO methods to enhance the performance

of the proposed controllers. The MRAC controller also excelled

in controlling the drilling process under different operational conditions.

The results of this thesis provide effective approaches to enhancing

productivity and quality in productive companies. The discussion

was attended by the Assistant Head of the Department for Scientific

Affairs and Postgraduate Studies Asst. Prof. Dr. Abbas Hussein Issa.

On this occasion, we congratulate the student and wish her continued success.













 The Control and Systems Engineering Department Holds Seminars for Postgraduate Students

A group of seminars were held in the Control and Systems Engineering

Department over two days on 3-4/12/2023, in the department’s discussion

room, Hall No. (9), as part of the department’s scientific activities by

discussing projects of postgraduate (Master’s) students in the research

stage for the specializations of Control Engineering, Computers Engineering,

and Mechatronics Engineering for the students who have passed

the first round or those who are currently in the research year.

These seminars were held to assess what has been accomplished in

the graduate students’ research projects, providing advice

and guidance to students, developing the method of presenting and

defending the research project, and achieving scientific benefit.

The discussion sessions were attended by the Assistant Head

of the Department for Scientific Affairs and Postgraduate Studies

(Asst. Prof. Dr. Abbas Hussein Issa), the heads of the branches,

and a group of the academic staff members.















 The Control and Systems Engineering Department Held Volunteer Work to Clean the Department Indoor Artificial Garden

The Psychological Counseling and Educational Guidance Unit

in the Control and Systems Engineering Department held

volunteer work on Wednesday, 29/11/2023, which included cleaning

the indoor artificial garden in the department. The work was done

by a group of the second year students, the computer engineering

branch. This event was held to consolidate the culture

of volunteer work and preserve the university environment.










 The Control and Systems Engineering Department Held a General Assembly Meeting

The Presidency of the Control and Systems Engineering Department held

a general assembly meeting that included all employees, engineers,

technicians, and administrators in the department. The meeting took place

on Tuesday, 28/11/2023, in the department’s conference hall, in the presence

of the Deputy Head of the Department for Administrative Affairs

(Prof. Dr. Hazem Ibrahim Ali), the Head of the Control Engineering Branch

(Prof. Dr. Omar Farouq Lutfy), and the Head of the Computer Engineering Branch

(Asst. Prof. Dr. Firas Abdel Razzaq Rahim). Many topics were raised,

including the department’s preparations for the new academic year,

preparing all necessary matters, emphasizing full commitment to attendance,

and overcoming the difficulties that may face the educational process.

At the end of the meeting, questions and inquiries were answered,

and suggestions and opinions were heard to develop and advance

the department and the university for the service of our dear country.
