“Linking together the scientific programmes of Delft, Wageningen and MIT will deliver an enormous wealth of combined knowledge”
By compiling an MSc programme and offering a summer course, Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) and the possibility of doing Thesis research, AMS educates technically trained professionals who can inter- and transdisciplinarily develop and implement metropolitan solutions.
MSc Programme Metropolitan Research, Engineering and Design
At the heart of the AMS educational offering is a new, technical and entrepreneurial two-year MSc programme in Metropolitan Solutions leading to an (TU Delft / Wageningen) engineering degree. Contingent upon accreditation, it will be launched in September 2017. The first year will consist of (massive open on-line ) course work and practical/lab work. The studio work is supported by a course on analysing and representing metropolitan (geo and/or social) data. Students are introduced in and will make use of the AMS data platform, which among others contains large Amsterdam metropolitan data sets. The second year of the MSc will take place mostly on-site in Amsterdam and for the most part consist of a research-based thesis project in the Amsterdam living lab or in partner living labs around the world. In the MSc programme you participate in the public-private research programme, work directly with leading public and private partners on a real-life challenge to develop practical, real-life solutions.
After graduating you will be able to identify and investigate metropolitan problems and synthesise and design sustainable solutions for these problems. By doing so, you will focus on maximising the well-being of people and on minimising the environmental impact, within the context of the new circular economy.
For who?: BSc graduates with a technical profile
Starting date: September 2017
Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) Sustainable Urban Development (closed)
An open, online course, with a study load of 4-6 hours a week during 7 weeks, for anyone who is interested in today’s and tomorrow’s challenges, which large cities and urban regions are facing.
For who?: open for anyone who is interested in the subject
We are looking for you if you are an ambitious TU Delft or Wageningen UR MSc graduate student, who wants to work interdisciplinarily on actual metropolitan problems and solutions. AMS can offer you unique AMS facilities, research/design cases and connections to the AMS network. The AMS educational programme is an extracurricular programme that can be followed in addition to your regular MSc programme.
For who?: Delft University of Technology and Wageningen University MSc graduate students
Starting date: from now on
Criteria: AMS MSc thesis/graduation protocol
