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 programme is delivered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).


The program provides top-quality expertise and skills for successful professional careers in research, technology development and design. The programme is delivered by Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e).

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.

Graduated and then?

After graduation there are several options for graduated engineers of the Master's Program Systems and Control. They can choose for a career in business or a scientific career.


This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of Holland and Flanders (NVAO).

Programme Structure

The Master's program Systems & Control prepares students for a specialist role in the field of dynamics and control technology for complex industrial systems. The scientific research field has a broad theoretical base, which includes mathematical system theory, dynamic systems, modeling and signal analysis. Control theory, stochastics and optimization are also part of this discipline. There is a constant tension between the theory of systems and control and the demands of applying the theory. This Master's program provides students with a thorough knowledge of both theory and practice. This enables graduated engineers to find the right balance between a formal mathematical basis and attractive, realistic applications.

The Master's program Systems & Control attracts students from all over the world. Futhermore, the master's program Systems & Control is a 4TU master's program.

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.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score (Grade C): 180

    The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

    Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

  • 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).

Academic Requirements

There are a number of general requirements for admission to this Master's degree program:
  • A relevant Bachelor's degree (for instance Aerospace Engineering, Automotive, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Technical Mathematics or Mechanical Engineering) or equivalent, based on a program of sufficient academic level and quality to be able to complete this Master's degree program.
  • Students hoping to participate in selection for the Amandus H. Lundqvist scholarship require a CGPA of 80% minimum.
  • You must be able to demonstrate sufficient command of the English language in which the program is taught. To prove sufficient command of the English language international students should submit an Academic IELTS or TOEFL test result.

Tuition Fee Per Year

  • EUR 15000 International

Scholarships and grants
Various scholarships are open to students wishing to follow a Master's program at the TU/e. A requirement of most scholarships is that you have been admitted to the Master's program before you may apply to the scholarship. It is therefore important that you take good note of the scholarships deadlines and apply well in advance to the TU/e Master's program of your choice in time to meet the scholarship deadline. Students from EU countries may also optionally get a grant.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
