Automation and Control Engineering, M.Sc.

Automation and Control Engineering, M.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
    Duration
University rank #201 (WUR) ,
Having mastered the basic principles from their Bachelor's degree, students will deepen their understanding in the areas of mathematics (e.g. vector analysis and numerical mathematics), advanced principles of physics (e.g. fluid dynamics), automation technology (with enhanced theoretical methods) and computer science (real-time systems and distributed computer systems). 

About

The course aims particularly to:

  • Develop the ability to deal with complex theoretical areas;
  • Develop the ability to solve complex automation tasks that require demanding model building, simulation and regulation methods.

The Master's course allows you to build on the ability, developed during the Bachelor's course, to grasp the interrelationship of complex technical systems, only this time at a higher level, and allows you to focus further on specific areas. Graduates will therefore have the choice of a wide range of engineering careers encompassing: design; planning and project administration in the automation of process control technology; manufacturing; energy; buildings; traffic; and vehicle and aircraft automation. There is also a focus on solving especially complex or demanding problems. Graduates of the Master's course can therefore expect to work in:

  • Research;
  • Project management;
  • Managerial roles with responsibility for staff.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: 2.5

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2.5 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

Bachelor's degree in an appropriate subject area with adequate length of studies and with an average mark of at least 2.5 issued in Germany or a foreign equivalent.
