New Course: Legal Aspects of MAS Design

Just published a new course of the master Systems Engineering, Policy Analysis and Management: Legal Aspects of MAS Design. The lecturer of the course is Nienke Saanen and was awarded as the best teacher of TPM in 2012

Runway extension, construction of works in protected areas, subsidizing sustainable projects… they all happen within a design space, limited amongst others by legal rules and requirements. To make optimal use of the design space, you have to know about these rules and requirements. When does a contract have to be tendered out, what rules are then applicable, what can be subsidized and what are the restrictions, how to comply with air quality requirements and can a frog really block a project? What alternative designs can be given in order to avoid legal problems? These and other problems will be addressed in this course.

At the end of the course the student will be able to:

• read and understand legal documents

• point out relevant legal aspects when designing or assessing a project

• carry out a basic check on the compatibility of a project with relevant law
