For senior or graduate-level students taking a first course in Control Theory (in departments of Mechanical, Electrical, Aerospace, and Chemical Engineering).


A comprehensive, senior-level textbook for control engineering.


Ogata’s Modern Control Engineering, 5/e offers the comprehensive coverage of continuous-time control systems that all senior students must have, including frequency response approach, root-locus approach, and state-space approach to analysis and design of control systems. The text provides a gradual development of control theory, shows how to solve all computational problems with MATLAB, and avoids highly mathematical arguments. A wealth of examples and worked problems are featured throughout the text.


The new edition offers many updates including coverage of ethics and an enhanced Companion Website that offers            new links and new activities in research and writing.
