Given the realization that students generally fall into a high-risk group, the University of Pretoria has launched several initiatives to promote the understanding of HIV among its student population. Recent initiatives include the development of an HIV/AIDS educational CD and the use of an HIV/AIDS model in an introductory control course to illustrate standard control systems materials. The University also initiated a project where students can get some idea on how HIV treatment strategies can be developed to contain the disease. Students benefit not only from the topical nature of the subject but also from an improved understanding of how control engineering concepts can be applied outside of traditional application fields.
