AS THE COMPLEXITY AND IMPORTANCE OF OUR MANY INDUSTRIAL STRUCTURES AND MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS GROW, SO DOES THE GUIDING HAND OF SYSTEMS AND CONTROL. THIS ACTIVE RESEARCH AREA IS AN IMPORTANT DISCIPLINE IN MANY FIELDS, INVOLVING SUCH SPECIALISTS AS ENGINEERS,PHYSICISTS, MATHEMATICIANS AND DESIGNERS. THE WORLD OF SYSTEMS AND CONTROL GUIDES MORE OF OUR LIVES THAN MOST OF US REALIZE. AREAS AS DIVERSE AS THE MANUFACTURING AND SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY, INFRASTRUCTURE MANAGEMENT, TRANSPORTATION, COMMUNICATIONS AND LOGISTICS, ENERGY DELIVERY, THE MEDICAL PROFESSION, AND THE FAMILY HOUSEHOLD ARE INCREASINGLY DEPENDENT ON IT. AND AS THE WORLD BECOMES MORE AND MORE AUTOMATED AND GUIDED, ITS IMPACTS WILL SPREAD EVEN FURTHER. The MSc programme trains students to use interdisciplinary strategies involving modelling, signal processing, controller design, and system analysis. It prepares engineers for a key role in the field of dynamics and control technology for complex systems and processes. The programme provides top-quality expertise and skills for successful professional careers in research, technology development and design. For students who wish to expand their academic career, the MSc programme is the perfect preparation for the national graduate (PhD) programme of the Dutch Institute of Systems and Control (DISC) as well as other PhD programmes. PROGRAMME STRUCTURE The MSc programme in Systems and Control is a two-year curriculum of lectures and assignments. It consists of a compulsory part, an elective part in which modules are chosen from a list of systems and control modules, and an optional part chosen in consultation with the MSc coordinator and/or the MSc thesis supervisor. Within the elective courses students have various specialisation options, for instance motion and vibration control, automotive control, nonlinear control, process control, hybrid systems, and embedded systems. The programme includes an optional traineeship of three months, which can be replaced by a cohesive collection of elective courses and literature study. SPECIALISATION Due to the diversity of participating groups and flexible setup, the MSc programme can offer many Specialisations, ranging from a pure engineering profile to more theoretical oriented research.

Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) Teaching and research at the DCSC encompasses the wide area of modeling, estimation and identification, control and optimization of linear, nonlinear and hybrid dynamical systems. Applications include, but are not limited to, mechatronics and microsystems, sustainable industrial processes, transportation and traffic control, and physical imaging systems. DCSC has extensive laboratory facilities and participates in many collaborative research projects with industrial partners. Systems and Control at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) Systems and Control at TU/e focuses especially on positioning systems, automotive applications, machine dynamics, biomedical modeling of basic physiological processes and instruments, embedded dynamic systems, acoustics and controls, and large-scale process control systems. Within these application areas, an integrated approach addresses physical and experimental modeling, signal analysis and processing, model-based control and design, and hardware and software systems. Systems and Control at the University of Twente Twente focuses on both fundamentals and applications in biomedical engineering, robotics, precision equipment, MEMS (mechanical electronic micro systems) and hybrid and embedded systems. Expertise centers on general mathematical systems theory, robust control, infinite dimensional systems, hybrid systems, learning and adaptive control systems and modeling of physical systems with applications in such domains as mechatronics, robotics, machine dynamics, signal processing, embedded control systems and computer science. Two Specialisations are available within the programme. SPECIALISATIONS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TWENTE Robotics and Mechatronics The Robotics and Mechatronics specialisation studies a synergistic combination of mechanical engineering, electronics and measurement and control in the design of products and processes. It focuses on Mechatronic Design that can be defined as: the integrated and optimal design of a mechanical system and its embedded control system. Mechanical constructions can get a superior performance, lower price and can become more flexible, by means of an integrated design of the mechanical parts and the measurement and control system, realized in electronic circuits or as an embedded computer programme. Well known examples are the audio CD-player and its successors the CD-ROM, DVD and Blu-ray as well as many automotive applications, robots, advanced production machines and so on. The research in Twente is increasingly found in the field of advanced robotics, including robotics in medical applications. Systems and Control Theory This specialisation is concerned with the theory of dynamic phenomena in interaction with their environment. Control of these phenomena includes: • Modeling: Obtaining a mathematical model that reflects the main features. A mathematical model may be represented by difference or differential equations, but also by inequalities, algebraic equations, and logical constraints.

• Analysis and simulation of the mathematical model • Prediction and estimation • Control: By choosing inputs or, more general, by imposing additional constraints on some of the variables, the system may be influenced so as to obtain certain desired behavior. Feedback is an important example of control. CAREER The graduates of this MSc programme enter careers across numerous sectors of industry and academia which range from management to design, research and development in technical departments. In our technologically developed society, commercial and governmental organizations are in constant need of people with a solid engineering education at an academic level, and this need will surely increase. Because of system complexity, an increasing number of engineers are playing a crucial role in the advising on and selling of smart products and capital equipment. Naturally there are also numerous careers awaiting systems and control engineers in academia, where these skills are in high demand as well. APPLICATION There are several ways to be admitted to the MSc programme in Systems and Control. Usually the MSc programme is a continuation of an academic BSc programme, but students can also enter after a BSc programme from a Dutch university of applied sciences (HBO).

Bachelor of Science Students with an academic BSc degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Aerospace Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Technical Mathematics or Technical Computer Science from a Dutch University of Technology or a University of the IDEA League are automatically admitted. Any gaps of knowledge in can be resolved by one or two additional courses included as electives. For students with other academic BSc degrees admittance to the MSc programme will be judged on a case by case basis. Dutch students Please check on www.3tudoorstroommatrix.nl whether your bachelor’s degree is sufficient for admission, or whether you need to follow a pre-master’s programme. Bachelor’s degree from a Dutch university of applied sciences (HBO) Candidates with a (HBO) bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathema­tics, Applied Physics, Aerospace Engineering and other programmes can be admitted. However, a pre-master’s programme of 30 ECTS needs to be completed before the candidate is formally admitted.
