It’s been on your career-advancement list: Share your knowledge with Control Engineering peers in 2023 on the most important topics research identified for automation and controls.
- Control Engineering researches what topics are most important for subscribers.
- Control Engineering 2023 editorial calendar is made by using that research.
Control Engineering Insights
- Control Engineering conducts research on the most-important topics for subscribers to do their jobs better.
- Leading Control Engineering topics for 2023 include PLCs, process control, programming, Ethernet, cybersecurity, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), data acquisition, energy efficiency, drives, motors, power protection, system integration, applying automation in case studies, and continuing education/training.
Automation and controls research is in from Control Engineering subscribers: These are the control engineering topics that will help you do your jobs better in 2023, and that are represented in the 2023 Control Engineering editorial calendar. The Control Engineering community of control engineering and automation experts are sharing knowledge in articles and courses disseminated online at www.controleng.com, in Control Engineering digital editions, print and eBooks, and in e-newsletters and Control Engineering webcasts. As automation and controls increase in value, so is interest in sharing Control Engineering knowledge. Help us make control engineering devices and systems easier to design, use, implement, and integrate.
