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 more accurate use of data in cities, and at larger scales than ever before.

The two-year MSc MADE program is a combination of institution and online education, thorough training in academic skills and project work. This is all connected to the research portfolio of Wageningen University & Research, Delft University of Technology, and their industrial and societal partners and brought together in the AMS Institute.

The first and the second year

In the second year, you work in a Living Lab. This project gives you the chance to operate in a real-life problem-solving setting. The living laboratory of Amsterdam supports cooperation with one of the private or public partners in the Amsterdam metropolitan region. The aim is to co-creatively develop an innovative product or process that helps the partner organization get closer to urban sustainability.

The master's program will be completed with a thesis. This includes a theoretical framework, advancing analytical methods, and explicating conceptual approaches.
