Our mission is to provide education and to perform research in systems and control, at an internationally recognized high level, from within a TUD-wide center that has a solid foundation in the faculty 3mE. In research we aim at contributing to fundamental aspects of dynamical systems and control as well as at advancing innovative and high-tech applications, in combination with relevant industrial and academic partners. In teaching we aim at creating a scientific climate where students can flourish to become independent and highly-skilled engineers and scientists. We use our own laboratory to validate our fundamental research and to teach students to work individually and in teams on projects. Our organization is structured to maximize synergy within the department and to support the development of leadership of our scientists in their respective fields.
