Control and Systems Engineering Research Laboratory

The mission of the Control and Systems Engineering Research Center (CASE) is the development of methods and systems and the transfer of technology to enable process industry to operate their plants in the best possible way using Also known asÊ Process Control Engineering Research Laboratory, CASE is established in 1991. Initially, CASE was supported by Chulalongkorn Unit Cell and Academic Unit Projects, With the other supports from NECTEC, ASAHI GLASS FOUNDATION, and NRCT led to the increasing number of graduate students admitted yearly to the Control and Systems Engineering Research Center, from 3 in 1991 to 38 students at present and the staff initially from 1 to 5. Since established, there are more than 80 graduate students from the center. They are now working in various industries in Thailand and aboard.
