MSc MADE graduation ceremony 2019

Education

The first cohort of MSc MADE students has graduated! They received their well-earned MSc diploma during a festive graduation ceremony at AMS Institute.

MADE IT is a study association initiated, designed and shaped by students and its main purpose is facilitating the development of its members. This is done through two main activities: firstly, professional development is addressed by organizing career-related events (ranging from workshops to study trips); secondly, through socializing and bonding events, relationships among students are built and strengthened, fostering true friendships.

Moreover, MADE IT strives to be the nexus of all student-centred activities taking place at the AMS Institute and in its network. Also, it plays an important connecting role between MSc MADE students and the activities taking place at partner universities in Wageningen and Delft. Lastly, MADE IT plays an active role in the development of MSc MADE from an administrative point of view, as well as an educational one by constantly giving feedback on the curriculum.
