Studying technology and society and their interrelations is typical for the analytical approach central to all master programmes offered by the Faculty of Technology, Policy and Management. The international programme Engineering and Policy Analysis (EPA) offers students a challenging interdisciplinary curriculum.  EPA is characterized by its unique blended, case-based approach to teaching and its focus on modelling and simulation. 

You will gain the knowledge and means necessary to analyse problems, to model and simulate dynamic systems and to assess solutions that change our world for the better. Therefore, we use innovative teaching methods, online and offline, with a focus on debating and presentation skills, including role-playing with actors. You can also benefit from the case-based approach of the programme, with real-life cases.

Students can take part in the EPA programme in one of the following ways:

  • as a full time student of the two-year programme (see further under Application and admission);
  • as an exchange student taking one or more individual modules to meet the requirements set by their own university.
