Specialization S&C

The Master Systems and Control offers a range of specializations. For clarity the more than 30 specialization courses are categorized according to five specialization themes.

Mechatronics & Robotics
Control for Automotive
Process & Energy
Cyber Physical

You can choose courses from all themes, but your study program has to be approved by your mentor. This is one of the assistant, associate or full professors of the S&C sections. These sections are active in all of the specializations themes.


Within the department of Mechanical Engineering a Master Allocation Procedure is implemented to assign students to the sections of this department.

Since the Mechanical Engineering department coordinates the Master’s Program S&C and different sections from the Mechanical Engineering department are involved in the S&C Master’s Program, this allocation procedure will (in) directly affect students who would like to perform their thesis work in one of the S&C sections within both departments.

Specialization sections

In the first quarter you will be informed further about the specializations and the sections will present themselves.

You can already check out the specialization options within each section. On their website (see overview below) they present all research areas they cover. Please note that not all research topics in each section are necessarily relevant to this program! The sections are autonomous, and are also involved in other programs. In the download menu on the right you can find a program specific presentation; covering only relevant research areas.
