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).
SeaClear project develops the first autonomous robots for underwater litter collectionToday's oceans contain 26-66 million tons of waste, with approximately 94% located on the seafloor. So far, collection efforts have focused mostly on surface waste, with only a few local efforts to gather underwater waste, always using human divers. No solution exists that exploits autonomous robots for underwater litter collection; the SeaClear project will develop the first. Check this animation to explore how are we planning to achieve this ambitious goal!
World record on the single-channel data rate of a standard optical fiberThe fiber-optic communication systems carry 99% of today’s internet traffic. These systems are under pressure due to an exponential rise in the bandwidth-hungry such as video conferencing, HD video streaming and online gaming. In order to increase data-carrying capacity of networks while keeping a lower labor and economic cost, researchers and industries around the world are working hard to achieve higher capacity per fiber.
ERC Starting Grant for Peyman Mohajerin EsfahaniThe European Research Council has awarded an ERC Starting Grant to Peyman Mohajerin Esfahani, researcher at Delft Centre for Systems and Control. The grants (1,5 million euros for a five-year programme) are intended to support scientists who are in the early stages of their career and have already produced excellent supervised work.
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.

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.
