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 . 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 processes
  • Transportation systems (automotive systems, logistic systems, aerospace)
  • Physical imaging systems (acoustic and optical imaging)
  • 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 environment.
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.
