Master of Science Systems & Control

Delft University of Technology

Program description

Master of Science Systems & Control

You are the person who has set up the drive-by-wire feedback and control system; without it the car would be useless. The automatic control system interprets status, feeds back sensor information to the actuators, and controls a safe journey home.

Process control in industry, robot welders on the production line, traffic control systems on our highways, or the use of the global positioning system in vessel station keeping – all are among your possible areas of work.

The world of systems and control guides more of our lives than most would realise. Critical areas as diverse as the manufacturing industry, infrastructure management, transport,  communications and logistics, energy delivery, the medical profession, and the family household are increasingly being run by it. And as our world becomes more automated and guided, so its impacts will become more widespread. We cannot do without systems and control.

Systems & Control
The two-year MSc programme in Systems and Control is directed at students with a technical BSc background interested in analysis and control of dynamic systems in their widest sense.

The programme is guided by the Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC), a merger of the three former systems and control groups of the departments of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Applied Physics.

The programme addresses both fundamental and application-specific aspects, emphasizing the multidisciplinary character of the field; it gives attention to applications in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, applied physics, chemical and aerospace engineering.

Among these are:

  1. Mechatronics, micro-systems, production systems, robotics, smart structures.
  2. Petrochemical/chemical/physical and biotechnological production processes
  3. Transportation systems (automotive systems, logistic systems, aerospace)
  4. Physical imaging systems (acoustic and optical imaging)
  5. Energy conversion and distribution
  6. Biomedical Engineering
