The world of systems and control guides more of our lives than most of us realize. The manufacturing and semiconductor industry, transportation, the medical profession and even the family home are increasingly dependent on it. As the world becomes more and more automated, robotic and guided, the impact of systems and control will spread even further. It is an important discipline in many fields, and one in which you could play a leading role. 

The future is in your hands

Systems and control can be applied to a wide range of systems. Applications can be found in robotics (medical, household and industrial), mechatronic systems, pick-and-place positioning systems as well as in automotive, energy and (chemical) process industries. It also play a critical role in the realization of ITER, the largest nuclear fusion test reactor in the world.

The Master of Systems and Control program prepares you for a key role in the field of dynamics and control technology for complex systems and processes. It trains students to use interdisciplinary strategies involving modelling, signal processing, controller design, and system analysis. The program provides top-quality expertise and skills for successful professional careers in research, technology development and design. 

There are more than 30 specialization courses to choose from, classified into five themes: 

  • Fundamentals 
  • Mechatronics & Robotics 
  • Control for Automotive 
  • Process & Energy 
  • Cyber-Physical 

You can choose courses from all five themes, pending approval of your study program by your supervisor.
