Master Control Systems Engineering
Control Systems are part of everyday life. They are used in the field of mechatronics and process manufacturing. Steering and controlling of control systems include robotic applications in automation, steering and tracking devices, and high-tech temperature, pressure and volume controllers necessary for chemical processes in industry. Advanced control systems are also applied to sustainable energy-producing installations and sustainable automotive applications.

Applying knowledge to the industrial environment
HAN's Masters course in Control Systems Engineering provides you with cutting-edge knowledge and techniques that can be directly used in an industrial environment.
Complex processes require advanced control systems. This Masters course focuses on advanced regulating systems used in industry, such as optimal and model predictive control devices and multi-variable non-linear control devices. You also learn about the latest methods of statistical analysis. Upon graduation you will be ready for a specialised career in systems engineering.
Cooperation with companies and other universities
Associated large industries and specialised companies all acknowledge the constant need for control systems engineers with a Masters qualification. This is reflected in the support given by companies like Shell, AKZO, IPCOS and OMRON, who share their knowledge by providing trainers and facilitate many of our major projects and excursions.
HAN also cooperates with other institutes and universities, such as Delft University of Technology, Wageningen University, Eindhoven University of Technology and Artemis/Edulab. As a result, teaching and laboratory facilities can be shared and students can benefit from guest lecturers. This also enables the level and content of the course to be continuously monitored. The course is recognised and supported by the Royal Institute of Engineers in the Netherlands.
This course is unique in the Netherlands in that it focuses on the translation of skills and knowledge taught at university to the real world. Many of our graduation projects are carried out in association with multinational companies and the course itself has a truly international focus with students from all over the world.
Master of Engineering in Control Systems
Students completing the course with a graduation project (thesis) will be awarded the title Master of Engineering in Control Systems (M.Eng.), which is acknowledged worldwide. Completion of the course curriculum (without thesis) will entitle you to a postgraduate certificate.
Full-time or part-time course taught in English
The Masters course in Control Systems Engineering is taught entirely in English. You can combine your work and studies by choosing the part-time option. If you opt for studying full-time in the Netherlands, we will help you find a work placement position.
