Complex Systems Engineering and Management (CoSEM), before SEPAM, is an interdisciplinary master, directly following the bachelor at TPM. If you have a different background, you can apply for the CoSEM master as well. More information about the CoSEM master can be found via this link.

During the master you will learn how to solve large-scale and complex problems, using gained knowledge of technical matters and management. The education focusses on decision-making processes on the boundary between the governmental and private sector. The three main subjects are systems engineering, multi-actor network theory and domain technology. The programme chart, containing all of the courses in chronological order, can be found via this link.

The modulecharts of the CoSEM programme can be found here.


As can be seen in the programme chart, you will have to choose a domain from the very start of the CoSEM master. The domains are the same as in the bachelor program of TPM: Transport and Logistics (T&L), Energy and Industry (E&I), Built Environment and Spatial Planning (B&S) and Information and Communication (I&C).


 You will also choose for a certain specialization during your master. These specializations are not exclusive for the CoSEM and can also be followed by EPA- and MOT-students. The 8 predefined specializations are formed to replace a long list of optional courses at our faculty.  More information about the specialization can be found on the specializationpage on the graduation portal.


The aim of CoSEM master thesis projects is to design solutions for large and complex contemporary socio-technical problems. This requires the consideration of technical, institutional, economic and social knowledge. The thesis of CoSEM is worth 30 ECTS. More information on the possibilities within the thesis and its procedures can be found on the graduation portal. Graduation internships can be found here
