Master Course in Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management

Campus Full time 2 years October 2016 Netherlands Delft

The Erasmus Mundus Master Course in Coastal and Marine Engineering and Management, is a two-year English taught international Master’s programme, in which five high-rated European universities participate. [+]

The Master in Construction Management and Engineering (CME) is a two-year English taught Master’s programme. It addresses the growing need for reforms within the building and construction (BC) industry and teaches students how to deal with present and future transitions. The BC industry is currently under a lot of pressure, as there is an increasing need for greater transparency, client orientation and innovation. Furthermore, today’s society is longing for a shift towards more sustainable solutions. For instance, the life cycle aspects of buildings or civil engineering works, quality assurance and coherency assurance are gradually getting more and more attention. In addition, the complexity of building projects is also increasing due to new EU regulations and a growing involvement and influence from interested parties in the construction process, as well as the high density of the built environment. These changes require different types of skills and knowledge from the current and future managers in the construction industry. There is a growing need for professionals who not only have thorough knowledge of integral design and engineering, but also knowledge of processes, lifecycle and risk management, new types of contracts and collaboration, systems engineering and the interests of all stakeholders. In becoming more client oriented, transparent and efficient, the industry simply cannot do without skilled managers that are able to apply their broad knowledge to various situations, whether it’s a large construction project, a multidisciplinary building project or a consultancy job for the government....

Master of Science Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences

The Faculty of Architecture at TU Delft offers a dynamic Master’s programme very much informed by the unique circumstances of the Netherlands, where the high population density has strongly influenced thinking about how to work creatively with space. The Faculty has an outstanding reputation and attracts students from all over the world. The programme is especially strong in such areas as design, research, management, technology and research-by-design.

 

Creating an inspiring and sustainable living environment

The field of architecture used to be fairly straightforward – it was about the design of buildings. But these days, the field is far more complicated. Where in the past the emphasis was primarily on expanding the supply, far more attention is now directed to maintaining, adapting and replacing existing buildings and neighbourhoods. Construction as a field has therefore become more complex and specialised. That in turn increases the demand for architectural engineers with management skills – engineers who are capable of skilfully directing both the technical and logistical components of a construction project at every phase along the way from design to management of the completed structure....

Geomatics is a relatively new science concerned with the analysis, acquisition, management, and visualisation of geographic data with the aim of gaining knowledge and better understanding of the built and natural environments. It is also a broad-based and interdisciplinary field of study. Geomatics remote sensing techniques give us the ability to measure and observe our environment and especially the features that are beyond the capability of the human eye. Geomatics data management and analysis techniques allow us to turn these measurements into useful information and knowledge with which we can identify patterns, track feature behaviour over time and predict the future state. To do this, Geomatics combines knowledge of Mathematics, Computer Science, Geodesy, and 3D modelling. The field of Geomatics can be applied to a wide range of (research) fields such as Hydrology, Crisis Management, Serious Gaming and Simulation, Urban Planning, and Land Administration.... [-]

MSc in Transport, Infrastructure and Logistics

 

The field of transport, infrastructure and logistics is interconnected with virtually every aspect of our daily lives. Put simply, without transport systems, our complex economies, cities and societies are simply inconceivable. Every day we take the bus, train or our cars and drive over interconnected systems of road infrastructure, rail- or tram networks. We go to shops and buy products that were produced, manufactured and distributed across all continents over all conceivable transport networks, over water, land or via the air. And even within large or small industrial complexes, again transport plays a fundamental role. Think of the automated baggage handling at international airports, fully automated production chains or automated container terminals at large harbors. Transport is everywhere, 24/7, 365 days of the year! And transport is not just a means to an end in our daily practice, it also influences heavily how we plan our environment and our economy, how politicians determine policies and how you, me and every one make choices about where we live, where we work, which activities we undertake and how we spend our lives....

MSc Science Education and Communication

 

 

Science and technology are two of the most powerful drivers of 21st century society. But without a constant flow of new scientific talent into our research laboratories and our corporate R&D organisations, it is not possible to maintain our current technology-dependent society. And as the role of technology grows, so does the importance of clear communication to decision makers in government and industry, to the media, and to the general public about science.

TU Delft has established a unique Master’s programme to prepare scientists to fill key roles as communicators linking the world of science and technology to society at large, and as educators teaching young people about science and technology.... [-]
