Engineering Systems in a nutshell
All tracks within the Master in Engineering Systems include 2 compulsory modules in the first semester:
- Systems Modeling
- Applied Control
In the second semester you have 2 (elective) modules on subjects specific to your track. The final part of the program is your major project. Here you do research on an engineering issue.
Systems modeling and applied control
Semester 1 gives you the fundamentals in Engineering Systems. All tracks follow the Systems Modeling and Applied Control modules. Also, apply your knowledge directly during labs and real-life projects for industry. And fine-tune your communication and research skills.
In Systems Modeling you learn how to model systems using the white-box model. Applied Control is about analyzing a system or model.
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.
