Case studies

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 the first year of the Master’s Spatial Engineering, you will work on three case study projects to develop (in a scientific way) sustainable interventions to help solve the problem.
