Optimisation and Genetic Algorithms

5th & 6th July 2017

ISC is pleased to announce that registration is now open for this course. We are offering an "Early Bird Discount" if registration is received 2 weeks before the course start date (see online registration form). Employees of ACTC member companies are entitled to two places free of charge. Note that all courses offered can also be provided at your company premises through special arrangements, please contact us for more information.

Registration is required. Please ensure the payment details section of the form is completed.


This one course provides an insight understanding to optimisation methods for both unconstrained and constrained optimisation. Furthermore, slightly more advance optimisation methods such as the dynamic optimisation method and genetic algorithms are illustrated in this course too. Hands-on session for each topic is used to reinforce the lecture.

The Optimisation is extremely important subject used across all the Engineering fields. For control engineering applications it is widely used for optimal control and parameter identification/estimation.
