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.
The Master's Program Systems and Control is a cooperation between the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering. Research groups from both departments are involved in the program. Each research group represents a specialization:
Graduated engineers of the Master's Program Systems and Control can take up a broad range of positions. There is a strong demand for them, both in the Eindhoven region and further afield. Especially in Eindhoven and the surrounding area there are numerous large and small high-tech companies working in the field of positioning systems and vehicle subsystems. In addition, many graduates of this Master's degree program will find employment in the automotive, energy and process industry, in engineering companies, in research institutes and in the software industry.
This program is legally recognized and accredited by the Accreditation Organisation of Holland and Flanders (NVAO).
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.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
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.

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

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).
