In addition to research, Utrecht University offers students education on topics related to complex systems. Our education has an interdisciplinary approach in which the fundamental knowledge of complex systems is combined with aspects and issues from applied sciences. This gives students an excellent opportunity to broaden their knowledge and viewpoints in academic and societal issues outside their regular curriculum.
