EQUIPPING STUDENTS TO TACKLE COMPLEX, MULTI-LEVEL SPATIAL PROBLEMS
Major multi-level spatial problems, also known as wicked problems, require multidisciplinary solutions and broad thinking. The Master’s programme Spatial Engineering prepares you to address these problems by combining technical and socio-economic knowledge with a strong basis of spatial data analysis and modelling. Think, for example, of the distribution of limited natural resources, of water, energy or food security, of catastrophic consequences of natural and man-made disasters, or of the unplanned development of mega cities.
In this video Programme Director Prof. Victor Jetten tells you all about the concepts, content and structure of our Master’s Spatial Engineering.
