Delft Center for Systems and Control (DCSC) coordinates the education and research activities in systems and control at the Delft University of Technology, in the Faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering (3mE). DCSC has been established in 2003 by merging the systems and control groups of Electrical Engineering (EWI), Mechanical Engineering (3mE), and Applied Physics (TNW).
Our mission is to provide education and to perform research in systems and control, at an internationally recognized high level, from within a TUD-wide center that has a solid foundation in the faculty 3mE. In research we aim at contributing to fundamental aspects of dynamical systems and control as well as at advancing innovative and high-tech applications, in combination with relevant industrial and academic partners. In teaching we aim at creating a scientific climate where students can flourish to become independent and highly-skilled engineers and scientists.
2018 George Nicholson Paper Award
The George Nicholson Student Paper Competition, arguably the most prestigious student award in the operations research community, is held each year since 1975 to honor outstanding student papers in the field of operations research and the management sciences. Viet Anh, a visiting PhD student at TU Delft and co-supervised by Peyman Mohajerin Esfahani, is the first winner from a European university. He received the 2018 Nicholson Award for the paper “Distributionally Robust Inverse Covariance Estimation: The Wasserstein Shrinkage Estimator”.
