Industrial Ecology is sometimes referred to as the ‘science of sustainability’. This is an emerging scientific discipline in which technical, environmental, and social aspects are integrated.
The Master's degree programme in Nanobiology is a joint degree programme from Delft University of Technology and the Erasmus University Medical Centre (Erasmus University Rotterdam).
Collaborating in Master's tracks
The three universities are also working together on Master's tracks: specialisations that form part of Master's programmes.
The main focus of the Bioinformatics specialisation is on Data Analysis and Modeling, which represents the unique expertise of the different research groups of Leiden University and the Delft University of Technology participating in this research oriented specialisation. This expertise is used to address issues like data capturing, data warehousing, data analysis and data mining that have become major challenges in the field of Bioinformatics due to the tremendous complexity and abundance of quantitative data in biology and medicine. On the other hand, bioinformatics heavily contributes to the identification of new fundamental computer science principles and the development of new informatics tools. This track is part of the Master's degree programme Computer Science of the Leiden University and Master’s in Computer Science of the Delft University of Technology.
Astronomy and Instrumentation
Governance of Migration and Diversity
The inter-university masterspecialisation, which started in September 2016, focuses on how policy, politics and organizations deal with migration and diversity. This track is part of the Master's degree programmes in Sociology, Public Administration and International Relations and Development of Erasmus University Rotterdam and the Master's in History of University of Leiden. Delft University of Technology participates with the course Urban Studies, Diversity & Design.
