ICON Institute for Control, Optimization, and Networks Our mission is to pursue innovative solutions to grand challenges.


Modern society relies on a vast number of systems, including manufacturing plants, transportation networks, supply chains, healthcare systems, power and communication systems, and social networks. These systems are rapidly growing in scale and complexity, driven by advances in autonomy and connectivity. This trend will only continue with the advent of new application domains such as robotic swarms and smart cities. Understanding how to better design and control these complex, connected, and autonomous systems remains a grand challenge.

Our residential Autonomous and Connected Systems (ACS) majors provide advanced engineering technical education with particular specializations in the fields of Autonomy, Internet of Things (IoT), and Robotics that are directly aligned with transformative technological advancements, cutting-edge research, and long-term industry needs.
