Amsterdam becomes living lab for MSc MADE

This academic year Wageningen University & Research and TU Delft introduce a new two-year joint master’s program in the city of Amsterdam. MSc MADE focuses on the metropolitan challenges of Amsterdam as a booming city, using the city of Amsterdam as a case study and a living lab.

In collaboration with AMS Institute, the program connects students to real life cases, business, the city and its citizens – training them hands-on for the multidisciplinary challenges of today’s and tomorrow’s cities.
