Master's Program Systems and Control

The Master's program Systems and Control 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.

Study Systems and Control: the future is in your hands

The world of systems and control guides more of our lives than most of us realise. The manufacturing and semiconductor industry, transportation, the medical profession and the family household are increasingly dependent on it. As the world becomes more and more automated, robotic and guided, its impacts will spread even further. It has become an important discipline in many fields, and one in which Dutch researchers play a leading role. Systems and control can be applied to a wide range of systems. Applications can be found in robotics (medical, household and industrial), mechatronic systems such as those used in DVD players, pick-and-place positioning systems as well as in automotive, energy and (chemical) process industries. But also in the realization of ITER, the largest nuclear fusion test reactor in the world.
