Core programme

Students must complete the core programme shown below, totalling 25 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.

Year

1) 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 quarters 2A and 2B in an integrated form 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 35 credits of profile specific courses and elective subjects. In consultation with the programme mentor, courses from all three universities can be chosen. 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 must be explicitly approved by the Examination Board.
