YMC-60300 is an 'umbrella' code. Instead, choose and register for 3 credits worth of modular skills (MOS) courses. For an overview of possible MOS courses please see under YMC-60300 in the study handbook.
RO0: Choose 0-2 courses, if these competences are not present according to the study adviser
RO1: Choose 2 courses
RO2: Choose preferentially at least 1 course in the field of Geo-ICT, Natural or Social Sciences from RO2 or another relevant Geo-Information course at WU or another university in consultation with your study adviser
RO3: Choose 1 course in consultation with your study adviser
Note 1: Students may apply for the EIT label (European Institute of Technology) in the area of Climate Innovation. This label is awarded if specific admission requirements are met and after completing extra-curricular study activities such as attending a summer school and a series of seminars.
Note 2: Students may apply for the AMS label (Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions, www.ams-amsterdam.com ) in the area of Metropolitan Issues. This label is awarded if specific requirements with regard to the thesis are met and after completing specific study activities such as attending a summer school or a series of seminars.
Ask your study adviser for information on EIT-label and AMS-label.
