What you will learn

You will learn how to act in an environment where a variety of systems, networks and human actors shape the metropolis and the flows in the city. As a student you make use of new technologies, enabling a much faster and accurate use of data on cities, and at larger scales than ever before.

The programme educates you in entrepreneurial and innovative thinking and acting. These skills will help you develop yourself as a unique inter- and transdisciplinary analyst, designer and engineer in the urban environment.

Entrepreneurship is a vehicle for students to truly work on actionable ‘solutions’ for metropolitan challenges, and learn to continuously redefine the context they work in.
