The students of MSc MADE focus on the urban challenges of Amsterdam. They use the city of Amsterdam as a case study and a living lab. Set up 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. The MSc MADE students will look for new solutions, start new economic activities and contribute to the city’s continued development into an attractive, innovative, strong and sustainable metropolitan area.
On this page we will showcase a selection of the projects the students are working on:
MSc MADE Knowledge Videos: As the students work on defining and understanding the metropolitan challenges Amsterdam is facing today, this video series allows them to share their observations on topics such as mobility, tourism, food, water, waste, energy and health.
MSc MADE Living Lab results: After months of hard work, co-creation sessions, research, stakeholder interviews, design, and product development, the first cohort of MSc MADE students revealed their urban solutions and prototypes in a Living Lab exhibition.
Metropolitan Solutions course 2020: As part of the Metropolitan Solutions course, first-year MSc MADE students were tasked, as consultants, to give advice to two case owners on urban challenges: the municipality on climate-proof Quay Walls and Stayokay Amsterdam East on becoming circular.
MSc MADE Students Pitches: For their course Entrepreneurship and Data Visualization, first year MSc MADE students pitched their innovative ideas on solutions for urban challenges to a jury of professionals.
