Study Systems and Control from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e): 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.


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:

  • Research groups Mechanical Engineering
  • Research groups Electrical Engineering
  • Research in the field of Systems and Control
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.
Career in Business

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).

Programme Structure

Program 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.

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.
