The Cyber-Physical Systems program was devised together with our industry partners. During the program you also conduct applied research focusing on their needs. That way you can be sure you have the right knowledge and skills for the job market.

Cyber-Physical Systems in a nutshell

Cyber-Physical Systems is a track within the Master in Engineering Systems. In the 1st semester, you take the modules:

  • Systems Modeling  
  • Applied Control

In the 2nd semester you choose 2 of these modules:

  • Embedded Control
  • Advanced Vehicle Dynamics
  • Big Data & Small Data

The final part of the program is your major project. Here you do research on a cyber-physical systems issue.

Systems modeling and applied control

Semester 1 gives you the fundamentals of systems modeling and applied control. Knowledge is immediately applied during labs and real-life projects for industry. Also important: you brush up on your communication and research skills.

Compulsory modules

In Systems Modeling you learn how to model systems using the white-box model. Applied Control is about analyzing a system or model.

Academic calendar

The academic year runs from September to August. In that time you have 42 weeks of education. The rest of the time you have holidays.

Modules and lecture days

Here you can find a weekly schedule of all the modules for the Master Engineering Systems in semester 1 and 2. This includes the modules for the Cyber-Physical Systems track.

Investigating a cyber-physical systems issue

Your 3rd and final semester is devoted to your major project. That’s where you investigate a real-life issue related to cyber-physical systems. Where? At a company or research institute.

Major project

The major project is a final test of your ability to manage a project. And where you demonstrate your skills in communicating, reporting and presenting. You get the support of a HAN staff member and a supervisor from the company or institute. 

Master of Science

You’ve reached the finish line. You now have a Master of Science in Engineering Systems. Congratulations! The program you've completed is accredited by the Accreditation Organization of the Netherlands and Flanders (NVAO). That means you now have an internationally recognized degree. Where are you going to put your skills to work?
