Welcome to the Master program Engineering and Policy Analysis
The central focus is on analysing and solving complex problems that involve many parties with conflicting interests. The two fundamental themes of the EPA programme are policy & politics and analytics, modelling & simulation. Such problems require solutions that not only solve the technological aspect of it, but also to address the societal and political aspects by the interactions and participation of different parties involved. As a student you will work on real and actual cases, such as the Ebola outbreak, the banking crisis, scarce metals or the introduction of hydrogen as an energy carrier, often with the real commissioner of the work at arm’s length. Also, climate change policy adaption is a topic commonly analysed through EPA lenses: which policies would be feasible in specific contexts, what will the future look like and how can different societies adapt to it in better ways?
