Introduction

This information is meant for students who currently follow a bachelor’s programme at the University of Twente and would like to continue with the Systems & Control master’s programme after their graduation.  

In order to be able to successfully follow the Systems & Control master’s programme you should have prior knowledge about a number of topics that will be elaborated further during the programme.

Below we give a checklist of topics that you should have covered to successfully follow the Systems & Control master’s programme.

How to obtain the right prior knowledge

There are several opportunities during and after your bachelor’s programme to follow courses, such that you will have the right prior knowledge to start your Systems & Control master’s programme:

  • Hopefully, your bachelor’s programme will contain many topics that you can use during your master’s programme.
  • If your bachelor’s programme contains electives, you can choose topics suitable for your master’s programme.
  • You can choose suitable courses during your minor programme (possibly at another university).
  • You can follow a premaster’s programme after your bachelor’s graduation.

Procedure for the admission

Please, submit a proposal, in which you indicate the specialization you want to choose and which courses you would like to follow, to the programme coordinator: M.J. Korsten. If an agreement is obtained, you will be admitted immediately after your bachelor’s graduation, if you have taken your courses according to the agreement.

Prior knowledge requirements

Below we give the prior knowledge that we require for all specialisations plus some additional topics that depend on the chosen specialisation.

All specialisations
