Servomatter is a small, privately owned training consultancy based in Houston, Texas.  

The first Servomatter course was created in 2007 as a short lecture on digital control theory for electronic design engineers.  As it's popularity grew, the material was expanded and further courses developed.  Now in their twelfth year, the courses evolved into a series of popular and respected 1-day seminars.  To date, a total of 138 seminars have been taught across 16 countries to an audience of well over 2,750.  

Seminars are often combined to form a 2-day or 3-day course.  For further information about current and forthcoming courses, on-site training, or about control theory, you are welcome to contact us using the form below.
