Do you have a strong affinity with technology and systems and are you are inspired by large-scale, complex challenges? Are you a creative thinker willing and able to look beyond the obvious solutions? Are you eager to engage with what is happening in the world and to use your skills to make our planet more sustainable? Do you have a relevant Bachelor’s degree and sufficient command of the English language?
If so, the Master’s programme in Spatial Engineering at the University of Twente may be just up your street. Check out the study programme or find out more about why you should choose Spatial Engineering at the University of Twente.
The two-year Master’s programme in Spatial Engineering at the University of Twente is a full-time, internationally oriented programme. English is the basic language to communicate with students from other nationalities. Upon successful completion, you are entitled to the degree Master of Science. The programme is worth 120 credits and is taught entirely in English. It will prepare you for an international career, while also keeping you in touch with the Dutch context.
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.
