Through Education we will engineer the Next Generation of Engineering Talent

For the AMS Institute, ‘engineering talent’ has two meanings: content and approach. The institute trains talented engineers in the development and implementation of metropolitan solutions and engineer talent through innovative education and real-life practice.

Developing and delivering metropolitan solutions requires talented, well-educated and motivated people. Talent can be found anywhere in the world, but developing that talent and focusing their energies on metropolitan solutions (in and for Amsterdam) requires new approaches. We combine the physical and digital worlds at all levels, blending on-site learning, distance education and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to deliver individualized education at the scale necessary for a world full of talent on the one side and metropolitan challenges on the other.

The AMS MOOC’s are open, online available, for anyone who is interested in specific metropolitan challenges. They have a study load of 4-6 hours a week during 7 weeks and participants can earn a verified certificate of achievement to demonstrate knowledge.
