Master's profile Complex Systems

Complex Systems Studies: Unravelling the complexity of societal challenges

As tomorrow’s society will be even more complex than today’s Utrecht University also wants to educate students in this important scientific field. Therefore we offer them the opportunity to complete the new Master's profile Complex Systems.

Short description

It's an interdisciplinary profile for ambitious students from different Master’s programmes, who want to work on modelling solutions within the field of Complex Systems. The profile gives the students the opportunity to broaden their view and knowledge from an interdisciplinary angle and widens their opportunities for further development. This profile can be fitted into the Master’s programme and does not require additional EC’s. Students will receive a Complex Systems certificate.
