A two-year, international master's

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.

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. 


This course is eligible for various scholarships like the ITC Scholarship for Spatial Engineering.

You must first apply for admission to the course. This will ensure that your application for admission can be processed in time for consideration for the scholarship.
