The mission of the Control and Operations Department (C&O) is to improve the safety and efficiency of operations in aerospace.

Consequently, the action plan for C&O for the coming years is to:

  • increase its productivity related to the primary mission;
  • focus on making quality contributions to the body of knowledge;
  • invest in 2 key critical needs, namely managing the enormous growth of unmanned aerial vehicle operations and in operational emissions impact modelling.

The C&O department now houses all the aerospace operations expertise of the faculty, strengthening its focus and making it more visible to the outside world, thereby achieving more synergy and further improving the quality of the research and education.
