Core programme

Students must complete the core programme shown below, totalling 30 credits. The core programs of the 3 universities are interchangeable, in the sense that all credits for core courses obtained in the Systems and Control master program at one university will be accepted when a student transfers to the MSc program in Systems and Control at one of the other universities.

1. Students must complete the courses on the table below, totalling 25EC.

*) The course Modelling and Simulation requires the course 191210431 Engineering System Dynamics as prior knowledge. It can be taken during Quarter 1B as a part of the Electrical Engineering bachelor module 201700145 Systems and Control. Alternatively it can be taken in self-study during the quarter 2A.

2. In addition students must complete one course in the field of control to be chosen from the following courses:

The Integration Project can only be carried out, if the three technical core courses have been attended. However it is possible to carry it out during quarter 2B, in parallel with Modelling and Simulation.

Specialisations and specialisation-linked subjects

The following specialisations are offered at the University of Twente:

1.       Robotics and Mechatronics

2.       Control Theory

3.       Bio-mechatronics

4.       Unmanned Arial Vehicles

The core programme is complemented with a total of 30 credits of profile specific courses and elective subjects. In consultation with the programme mentor, courses from all three universities can be chosen. Depending on the chair, in which the student will carry out the graduation project, addition requirements can be posed to the courses of the programme. Available courses at the University of Twente are listed in the table below. Lists of available courses at the Technical Universities of Delft and Eindhoven are maintained in their Implementation Regulations and are made public at their website. The total course programme of 60 credits has to be approved by the Examination Board.

Courses, not on one of the course lists, can be chosen but should be explicitly approved by the Examination Board.

List of specialisation-linked and Elective courses

Note that some of the courses may have an overlapping content, which may be a reason that they cannot be chosen in the same course list.
