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.

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

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 should be explicitly approved by the Examination Board.

Internship, Literature study and Graduation Work

UT students need to complete an internship worth 20 credits, complemented with a graduation work worth 45 credits.

Graduation work consists of a graduation project, a graduation report, a summary of the report and a final presentation.

Students may not commence a an internship until they have completed 40 EC of the first year, including the core programme.

Students may not commence with their graduation project until they have completed all of the remaining components of the study programme.

Study Programme approval

Within three months after enrolling in the master’s programme, students must submit a complete master’s curriculum to the Examination Board for approval.

Each individual amendment to an approved study programme must be resubmitted to the Board of Examiners for approval.
