Specialization S&C

Four sections (research groups) are involved in the S&C Master’s program. They are Control Systems (Electrical Engineering), Electromechanics and Power Electronics (Electrical Engineering), Dynamics and Control (Mechanical Engineering) and Control Systems Technology (Mechanical Engineering). 

The sections have created a number of profiles (these profiles can be found under the downloads). The profiles provide students with more detailed information on the relation between their specialization; individual course program and internship- and MSc project opportunities. Furthermore, the profiles help students with their choices. Students should be able to follow different paths and develop different expertise profiles. These profiles are created to guide and assist students and do not form any formal tracks within the S&C program. They are suggestions and not mandatory.

Your study program has to be discussed with your mentor and approved by the Examination Committee. Your mentor is one of the assistant, associate or full professors of the four sections.



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 & profiles

In the first quarter (September 12th, 2023) you will be informed further about the specializations and the sections will present themselves. You can already check out the specialization options (profiles) within each section. In the download menu you can find an overview of the profiles and a program specific presentation for most sections; covering only relevant research areas.

On their website (see overview below) the sections present all research areas covered. 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.
