MSc Complex Systems Engineering and Management
(Before: Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management SEPAM)
Are you looking for a Master's degree programme in which you learn to design in complex technical environments? But do you want more than ‘just’ technical skills? For example, do you want to look beyond the design of electric vehicles and concentrate on what is needed to implement electric transportation on a large scale? And therefore work on regulations, logistics, behavioural change, financial incentives etc., in order to bring innovations to life? Then choose the unique Master's degree programme in Complex Systems Engineering and Management (CoSEM).

The socio-technical environment
In the CoSEM Master's programme we explore the innovations in complex socio-technical environments. You learn to think about more than technology alone. After all, when designing technological innovations, you have to deal with matters such as existing regulations, subsidies, distribution channels and infrastructures, as well as interests, cultures and human behaviour. In order to achieve successful innovations, these aspects must be considered and used in your socio-technical design. These kinds of designs always have an ethical dimension and an international character. The programme therefore spends a great deal on ethical issues and has an international character.
Nice to know: the career prospects are excellent. 90% of CoSEM graduates find a full-time job within six months of graduating. Our students find employment with major Dutch and international companies such as Shell, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, Exxon, Tennet, Eneco, and with government bodies and regulatory authorities. In addition, many work for start-up companies or go into business for themselves.
