Engineering and Policy Analysis
In contemporary society, many of the most vexing issues we face cannot be solved by technology alone. Engineering excellence must be coupled with insight into societal needs and the mastery of project and process management tools. At the intersection of technology and public policy TU Delft's MSc Programme in Engineering and Policy Analysis (EPA) is an international interdisciplinary programme, designed to provide its graduates with a unique combination of technical, analytical and management
Designs for the high seas In years past, there was hardly any job more hazardous than to sail the seas. These days, we take it for granted that cargo ships can safely navigate the seas – largely because of technological advances in marine technology. These same technologies make it possible to extract oil from the seabed and load it on to a tanker in high winds and heavy seas. If you are intrigued by the technologies that allow for the construction of highly complex modern ships, the exploita

Our world is driven by information. Think about how much we use Google Earth, TomTom, GPS, and satellites. In our globalised world it becomes more and more important to have an overview. Geo-information is crucial for this and people who can deal with this information as well. ‘Geo-information’ – the geographical coordinates of buildings, roads, property boundaries, water pipes, and even trees – is considered as an essential resource by both government and industry, where it is consta
