The Master's degree program Systems and Control prepares engineers for a key role in the field of dynamics and control technology for complex systems and processes.

As the complexity and importance of our many industrial structures and manufacturing systems grow, so does the guiding hand of Systems and Control. It is an active research area in both the scientific and industrial world in which Dutch researchers play a leading role. The world of systems and control guides more of our lives than most of us realize. Areas as diverse as the manufacturing industry, transportation, the medical profession, and the family household are increasingly dependent on it. And as the world becomes more and more automated and guided, its impacts will spread even further. The program is aimed at students interested in analysis and control of dynamic systems in their widest sense. Among them are mechatronics, micro-systems, robotics, transportation systems, physical imaging systems and embedded systems. The program combines a formal mathematical basis with attractive, realistic applications. The first year consists of core, elective and research oriented courses. The second year is dedicated to the internship and graduation project. There is a strong demand for graduates. The degree will surely be an essential engineering qualification for future decades.
