Delft Center for Systems and Control
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 of Mechanical Engineering (ME).
DCSC has been established in 2003 by merging the systems and control groups of Electrical Engineering (EWI), Mechanical Engineering (ME), and Applied Physics (TNW).
Fully automated robot team successfully cleans litter from seafloor, next step is to go faster and deeperA consortium of European researchers, led by TU Delft, created a functional team of smart robots designed to clean litter from the seafloor. The SeaClear system has successfully passed its last series of tests in both clear and murky waters.

TU Delft opens globally unique wind tunnelWind turbines are getting bigger and bigger and the wind speed is never the same on every part of the rotor – the rotating part of a wind turbine. That is why it is important to carry out experiments using non-uniform wind fields: fields in which the wind speed is not the same everywhere. With the opening of TU Delft’s Wind AI Lab – a globally unique wind tunnel – this will become possible.
Three Vidi’s for faculty 3mEThe Dutch Research Council has awarded 101 experienced researchers a Vidi grant worth 800,000 euros. Eight Vidis go to top researchers from Delft, of which no fewer than three researchers work at the 3mE faculty: Michael Wiertlewski, Willem Haverkort and Kim Batselier. The grant enables them to develop their own innovative line of research and set up their own research group in the coming five years.
Peyman Mohajerin Esfahani has been granted the European Control AwardPeyman Mohajerin Esfahani, associate professor at the Delft Center for Systems and Control, has been granted the 2022 European Control Award (ECA). This award is in recognition of Peyman’s fundamental contributions to “data-driven optimization and control, and distributional robust decision-making”.
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 ME.
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.
