The aim of the Systems, Control and Mechatronics programme at the Chalmers University of Technology is to prepare the students for a professional career by providing a broad systems engineering base, suited to the engineering of complex, computer-controlled (embedded) products and systems, and offering course packages toward subtopics and/or fields of application.

About

Programme description

A striking example of the current development can be found in the automotive area, where modern passenger cars increasingly depend on the integration of the car’s mechanical subsystems with a substantial amount of embedded computers, sensors, actuators, and communication devices, making it possible to create cars with active safety functions and new propulsion systems. Other evolving fields of this discipline is HVDC power transmission to minimize loss in the grid and intelligent robots for households and industry, to name a few. The Systems, Control and Mechatronics programme is delivered by Chalmers University of Technology.

To ensure development within the field, all these systems depend on engineers making them precise, effective, flexible, fast and safe. As a student you will become able to contribute to the development that will lead to the integration of functions for sensing, monitoring and control with a wide range of products and systems.

We prepare you for a professional career by providing a broad systems engineering base. In the basic courses our focus lies in developing your engineering skills on a system level; Discrete event systems, Modelling and simulation, Linear control system design, Embedded control systems and Design project. In the elective part of the programme, we offer course packages toward subtopics e.g. control, automation and mechatronics and/or fields of application.

In collaboration with Universität Stuttgart, we also offer you a possibility to pursue a double degree.

Why apply

The programme leads to a wide range of career opportunities with emphasis on operation, design, development and research of complex technical systems within almost any branch of industry. In fact, the generality of many of the methods offers great opportunities in terms of choosing among many different application domains. The acquired skills are needed at manufacturing companies, supplier companies, consulting firms and utility companies.

Job roles range from applied research to product and system development and operation, as well as extend to sales support and product planning. In addition, other career opportunities may arise as academic researchers, technical advisors, project managers and teachers at different levels.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    6.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Book IELTS
  • Minimum required score:

    575

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:

    90

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
