The Flight Systems and Control (FSC) is a research lab at the University of Toronto Institute for Aerospace Studies (UTIAS). We focus on the following research theme: to discover innovative flight control solutions for intelligent aerial systems (including unmanned aerial systems) and autonomous aviation applications.
Our research team of bright minds has the passion of working on creative ideas, yet we stick to a systematic approach of realizing these ideas, by developing the dynamic model (to describe the aerial systems’ behaviour or aviation applications’ phenomenon) and custom building integrated control to achieve desired missions, supported by experimental proof-of-concept flight demonstration.
We believe the flight control tech is an important component to bring a potential disruption to increase intelligence and enable autonomy in aerial systems and aviation applications. We would like to make valuable contributions to that vision!
To prospective students: the FSC group welcomes passionate and dedicated bright minds to join us in a stimulating and nurturing environment. please follow the UTIAS admissions to apply for our graduate programs and please specify our research field on your application file, so that your application will be screened. All reviewed applicants will be contacted individually by professor liu to follow up with interview or receive feedback. students pursuing PhD programs will be considered with priority.
