A striking example of the current development can be found in the automotive area, where modern passenger cars increasingly depend on the integration of the car’s mechanical subsystems with a substantial amount of embedded computers, sensors, actuators, and communication devices, making it possible to create cars with active safety functions and new propulsion systems. Other evolving fields of this discipline is HVDC power transmission to minimize loss in the grid and intelligent robots for households and industry, to name a few. The Systems, Control and Mechatronics programme is delivered by Chalmers University of Technology.
To ensure development within the field, all these systems depend on engineers making them precise, effective, flexible, fast and safe. As a student you will become able to contribute to the development that will lead to the integration of functions for sensing, monitoring and control with a wide range of products and systems.
We prepare you for a professional career by providing a broad systems engineering base. In the basic courses our focus lies in developing your engineering skills on a system level; Discrete event systems, Modelling and simulation, Linear control system design, Embedded control systems and Design project. In the elective part of the programme, we offer course packages toward subtopics e.g. control, automation and mechatronics and/or fields of application.
In collaboration with Universität Stuttgart, we also offer you a possibility to pursue a double degree.
The programme leads to a wide range of career opportunities with emphasis on operation, design, development and research of complex technical systems within almost any branch of industry. In fact, the generality of many of the methods offers great opportunities in terms of choosing among many different application domains. The acquired skills are needed at manufacturing companies, supplier companies, consulting firms and utility companies.
Job roles range from applied research to product and system development and operation, as well as extend to sales support and product planning. In addition, other career opportunities may arise as academic researchers, technical advisors, project managers and teachers at different levels.

Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL®PBT is administered in a paper format and measures your ability to use and understand English in a classroom setting at the college or university level. It accurately measures how well you can listen, read and write in English while performing academic tasks. Read more about TOEFL®PBT.Schedule TOEFL®

The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Scholarships are a great source of funding for Master's students who are liable to pay tuition fees. Chalmers University of Technology offers numerous scholarship opportunities. Some of these are administered by the university itself and others by external institutions.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
