The Systems and Control programme offered by the University of Twente (UT) is a multidisciplinary field focusing on the control of all kinds of technical systems. It combines knowledge of the mathematics of Systems and Control with specific knowledge of its applications (e.g. mechatronic systems).

Visit the official programme website for more information


During the Systems and Control programme offered by the University of Twente (UT) , you will investigate ways of developing mathematical models that reflect the key features of a system by employing differential equations, inequalities, algebraic equations and logical constraints. Then, You will use advanced methods to simulate the modelled system. 

During the simulations, control algorithms (e.g. using feed-forward or feedback) can be designed and tested. Depending on your specialisation you will concentrate on elaborating theoretical aspects of control, or you will focus on the technology of developing mechatronic devices and systems.


Graduates of the Master’s in Systems & Control find employment in numerous sectors of industry and academia such as R&D departments in industry, consultancy firms and research.

Career prospects of graduates of the specialisations are given at:

  • Biomechatronics
  • Control Theory
  • Robotics and Mechatronics
  • Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


The programme holds NVAO accreditation.
