Master’s studies in Systems and Control (SC) are intended for graduates having basic knowledge of automatic control and wishing to deepen their expertise in several research directions. The Systems and Control graduate program has an interdisciplinary curriculum built on engineering branches as automatic control, applied informatics, robotics, communications, and electronics. The covered topics help the students to gain professional competences in:
- Working with advanced concepts of systems theory and automatic control, computer science, artificial intelligence, information technology, and communications.
- Using advanced methods of computer-assisted modeling, simulation, identification, analysis and design of automatic control systems.
- Designing, implementing, testing, operation, and maintenance of technical equipment and advanced automatic control structures.
- Software development to implement complex control algorithms using programming tools, artificial intelligence techniques, and advanced technologies.
Duration & Credits
The graduates of the SC master program have competences suitable for obtaining jobs in companies, academic institutions, and research centers with interest in fields as systems engineering, automatic control, applied informatics.
Admission & Fees
EU/EEA/Swiss Confederation citizens must acquire recognition of graduated studies for admission in a Romanian higher education institution, which will have to be assessed by the Romanian Centre for Equivalence and Recognition of Diplomas (CNRED). A certificate issued by CNRED recognising the candidate’s previous studies will have to be included in the application papers, along with application form and copies of study documents, birth certificate, passport, medical certificate, international English language certificate, photos and, where applicable, name change documents, certification showing student status and diploma.
Non-EU citizens’ application file must include application form and copies of study documents, academic records for completed studies, birth certificate, passport, medical certificate, international English language certificate, the document proving residence abroad and the document proving payment of the file processing fee.
Important: other than these general requirements, each candidate must also meet certain specific requirements when applying to this study program.
Holders of a Bachelor’s degree, or an equivalent degree with similar study duration for the intended study specialization in Romania, provided the 1st and the 2nd study cycles accumulate a minimum of 300 ECTS. Enrolling candidates should have an English certificate (at least B1 level). In order to be admitted at this Master’s program, the candidates have to pass an on-line interview.
The admission process for the Systems and Control master studies involves an application file and an interview. The application file includes official transcripts as the academic records from the bachelor’s studies and the graduation exam.
The interview is in English and it consists of a short oral presentation of a research topic that is of interest to the applicant. This presentation may be based on envisioned extensions from bachelor diploma work and it should prove that the applicant has basic knowledge related to the Systems and Control field of study. For applicants outside Romania, the interview can be conducted on Skype, based on prior scheduling with the admission committee.
The average grade accounted for the admission is computed as follows:
AG = 0.4 * IG + 0.6 * BG,
- AG = admission grade,
- IG = interview grade,
- BG = Grade from bachelor’s graduation exam.
- For non-EU students, the tuition fee is 270 EUR per month (2430 EUR per year).
- For EU students, the tuition fee is 3000 RON per year.
