Research and Education at MAS
The Multi-Actor Systems (MAS) Department of the Faculty Technology, Policy and Management (Delft University of Technology) focuses on the governance in and of socio-technical systems. By governance, we mean the use of instruments, strategies and structures aimed at shaping or changing socio-technical systems, or parts thereof.
Research at MAS addresses the question of how, in such an environment, decision-making, change and coordination of and in socio-technical systems happen. We are actively working in application domains such as water, climate change, energy, cyber security, transport, mobility and infrastructures, humanitarian response and resilience.
MAS provides education to students in all the master and bachelor studies that are taught at the faculty of Technology, Policy & Management. Our teaching emphasizes the consequences of the multi-actor perspective for modelling (conceptually and quantitative) as well as design (robust and fit for ‘real world’ actor behaviour).
