Hi! My name is Merel, I am 24 years old and in September 2019 I have started the Joint Masters degree Metropolitan Analysis Design and Engineering (MADE) of the TU Delft and Wageningen University & Research. After finishing my bachelors program Human Geography and Urban Planning at the UvA (University of Amsterdam) I wanted to further explore the rising metropolitan challenges, such as sustainability and the quality of life. These urban challenges demand smart and interdisciplinary solutions which, in my opinion, can only be developed in collaboration with citizens, research and industry. I therefore chose the MSc program MADE, because it brings together multidisciplinary teams (both different personal as educational backgrounds) to addresses these important metropolitan challenges. Thus, if you have any questions concerning the study program, the AMS institute or any other question, do not hesitate to send me a message. I am happy to help!
