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).
TU Delft research partner in innovative wind farm Hollandse Kust NoordAs the research partner in the so-called Hollandse Kust Noord (HKN) project, TU Delft is playing a significant role. Once the wind farm has been built, researchers, led by Professor Jan-Willem van Wingerden, will be able to test their findings regarding wind energy in practice, and the amount of energy generated by the wind farm will be maximised.

Combination of microscopy techniques makes images twice as sharpResearchers at Delft University of Technology have combined two existing super-resolution microscopy techniques to create a new method. Many experts thought that combining these techniques was not technically possible. The new, combined method enables researchers to visualize the tiny components of living cells better than ever before. Among other things, this can lead to new insights for healthcare.
XII Workshop on Adaptive Optics for Industry and MedicineProfessor Michel Verhaegen and Professor Gleb Vdovine are the general co-chairs of the International Workshop on Adaptive Optics for Industry and Medicine (AOIM) explores the recent developments, current practices and future trends in adaptive optics and closely related fields. The AOIM XII Workshop and AO school will be held on October 21-25, 2019 in the TU Delft Science Centre, The Netherlands. The relaxed atmosphere of this single-session meeting encourages the participants to present and freely discuss the recent developments in adaptive optics applied to industrial and medical applications. The programme topics are the following: General Adaptive Optics Control for Adaptive Optics Wavefront Correctors Wavefront Sensing Microscopy High Power Lasers Ophthalmology Computational Imaging & Holography Free Space Optics Lithography Imaging through Turbulence Emerging Technologies This edition of the workshop will be preceded by a Two-day Adaptive Optics School on October 21 & 22 . The AOIM workshop is organized by the Delft Center of Systems and Control (DCSC). The conference will be based in the Science Center of Delft University, near the Schie Canal in the proximity of the city center. Delft is located 50 km to the south of Amsterdam and 10km distance from the centers of The Hague and Rotterdam and is served by two airports (Schiphol and Rotterdam airport) with convenient and quick train/bus connections. There are plenty of cultural opportunities in the area. The AOIM XII workshop is co-organized with the Face2Phase event that will take place on 21-23 October 2019 in Delft. Delagates of AOIM have full access to Face2Phase talks and program events, and delegates of Face2Phase have full access to the AOIM program (AO school is not included). Only one regitration (to any of these two events) is necessary. The events are scheduld one after another to avoid parallel sessions: Face2Phase on 21-23 October, and AOIM on 23-25 Oct, with no overlap. Please mark your calendar: AO School: Oct 21-22, 2019, Face2Phase event: Oct 21-23, 2019, AOIM XII workshop: Oct 23-25, 2019.
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.
