AMS Institute is involved in over 80 projects aiming to create a prosperous and vital city. Now and in the future.
What makes AMS Institute unique is the valorization of research in practice, using the city of Amsterdam as a living lab. Amsterdam provides a valuable context for experiments that help to develop and test advanced solutions for challenges in urbanized metropolitan areas around the globe. Master's program Metropolitan Analysis Design & Engineering (MSc MADE) is the latest addition to AMS Institute's educational activities. It aims to provide innovative education and deliver highly skilled interdisciplinary engineers with the theoretical grounding and practical experience to deal with the complex challenges of cities.
