Programme of Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering

Read more about the programme of the master's Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering.

The two-year MSc programme is student-centred, entrepreneurial and operates in the territorial context of Amsterdam.

What you will learn

Students learn how to act in an environment where a variety of systems and networks shape the metropolis and the flows in the city, and where a broad range of human actors and entities are influencing the whole. Students learn how to create understanding by making use of new technologies, enabling a much faster and accurate use of data on cities, and at larger scales than ever before.

Students learn the competencies of entrepreneurial and innovative thinking and acting in order to skill themselves as unique inter- and transdisciplinary analyst, designer and engineer in the metropolitan environment.

In addition, tailor-made, self-designed tracks in Wageningen or/and Delft facilitate specialisation. Graduation projects are carried out in the second year. The living laboratory of Amsterdam supports cooperation with one of the private or public partners in the Amsterdam metropolitan region, or a more individual entrepreneurial project.

The two-year MSc MADE programme is a combination of in situ and online education, a thorough training in academic skills and project work, connected to the research portfolio of the two partner universities and their industrial and societal partners, as brought together in the AMS Institute.
