Why study Control Systems at HAN?
Collaborate with research group
Collaborate with HAN’s Research Group in Control Systems. Its research is at the crossroads between energy and mobility.
Loads of career opportunities. Start working in the technical sector, higher education, a research institute or R&D department.
Transfer directly after bachelor
Transfer directly into this master after your bachelor in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, process technology or automotive engineering.
Geared to professional practice
Companies like KEMA, Shell IPCOS and OMRON support the master. How? Through guest lecturers, excursions and projects.
Program: What do you learn?
This program is all about modeling and advanced control in industry. You learn to model and validate complex systems with multiple inputs and outputs. How? Using both white-box modelling and system identification. Then you delve into applications like robust control, optimal control and adaptive control systems. You also learn to apply practical control solutions. For instance, integrator wind-up solutions and a smith predictor.
Careers: What can you do with this master of science?
Control systems are essential in mechatronics and process manufacturing. Think of robotic applications in automation. Steering and tracking devices. High-tech temperature, pressure and volume controllers for chemical processes in industry. Or think of installations that generate sustainable energy and sustainable applications in vehicles. Control systems engineering is a diverse field. As are the job opportunities!
Looking back: Online Open Day
The Online Open Day was on Saturday 26 March. Did you miss it? No worries! You can watch the videos of the talkshows that were recorded on the day. They give info on admissions, visas and immigration, student life and much more.
The Dutch way of learning : Education at HAN and in the Netherlands
The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions. To give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative. And to discover things for yourself.
Part of the Master in Engineering Systems
Control Systems is a track within the Master in Engineering Systems. So when you apply on Studielink you choose Engineering Systems. Then you indicate the track you wish to follow. In this case, Control Systems. Other tracks in the Master in Engineering Systems are: Sustainable Energy, Automotive Systems, Embedded Systems and Smart Manufacturing (available from September 2023).
Study in part-time?
Want to study in part-time? Follow the modules at your own pace? You can if you are from the EU/EEA or have a valid residence permit for the Netherlands. You also need to be working in the field. The part-time program takes 3 years to complete.
Why study in Holland?
Holland has a large population of international students so you won’t feel alone. In fact, 1 in 10 students is an international student. Why do so many international students come here? Because Holland has excellent, affordable higher education. It also has a thriving economy (18th in the world) so there are plenty of job opportunities. What’s more, the Dutch are open-minded and almost everyone speaks English.
