MSc Program Systems and Control
MSc program Systems and Control
In September 2003 Delft University of Technology started the
new two-year MSc program in Systems and
Control. The start of this MSc programma is strongly
related to the establishment in 2003 of the Delft Center for Systems and
Control (DCSC), a merging of three former systems and
control groups of the departments of Electrical Engineering
(EWI), Mechanical Engineering (3mE) and Applied Physics (TNW).
This center is housed at the Faculty of Mechanical, Maritime
and Materials Engineering (3mE).
The program is part of the 3TU MSc program in Systems and
Control within the joint 3TU Graduate School, under the umbrella
of the 3TU.Federation.
In this federation, founded in februari 2007, the three technical universities
in the Netherlands have joined forces to strengthen their position,
both nationally and internationally.
The study guides are available on-line from
studyguide.tudelft.nl . The study
guide 2011 for the MSc program is also available in pdf-format.
The MSc-program is directed towards the fundamental and
application specific aspects of systems, signals and control
engineering. It will emphasize the multidisciplinary character
of this field, giving attention to applications in mechanical
engineering, electrical engineering, applied physics, chemical
engineering and aerospace engineering, among which:
- Mechatronics, microsystems (MEMS), production systems,
robotics, smart structures.
- (Petro)chemical/physical and biotechnological production
- Transportation systems (automotive systems, logistic
- Physical imaging systems (acoustic and optical
- Energy conversion and -distribution
- Biomedical engineering
The program is oriented towards students from a variety of
backgrounds in engineering. The program will be interesting and
challenging, and it will provide top-quality expertise and
skills for a successful professional career in either research,
technology development, or any other professional
Through the combination of the above mentioned disciplines the
presentation of an integrating approach to systems and control
engineering is enabled, with attention for both physical (first
principles) modelling, experiment design, signal analysis and
signal processing, experimental modelling, model-based control
design, hardware and software systems, and this for systems of
high complexity and of different nature (linear and nonlinear
dynamics, hybrid and embedded systems, from small-scale
microsystems to large scale industrial processes).
Delft University of Technology
Delft University of
Technology (TU Delft) is the oldest and largest university
of technology in the Netherlands. The university employs more
than 5,000 people and has about 14,000 registered students.
Approximately 10% of the students have a nationality other than
Dutch. The Delft University of Technology has a national and
international reputation for the quality of its scientific
research and university teaching, and is one of the five
members of the IDEA-League (Imperial College London, Delft
University of Technology, ETH Zürich, Technische
Universität Aachen and Paris Tech). The TU Delft is located in the university
district (‘TU-wijk’) of the ancient city of Delft.
Beyond the medieval church towers, one can see the
University’s tall, modern buildings. More information on
the historic city of Delft can be found here.
