Spatial Engineering

Food and water security

Learn to combine technical and socio-economic knowledge with spatial data analysis and modelling to tackle growing challenges of food and water security

In the Mara River Basin (Kenya) natural resources such as water and primary productivity of the ecosystems are important for different stakeholders. Stakeholders all suffer from the effects non-sustainable use of these natural resources. They also suffer periodically from drought spells. However, the way in which they are affected and the solutions to mitigate the effects of this are not necessarily the same.

Master's Spatial Engineering

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.

Spatial Engineering is special in various ways. Throughout the programme you will notice a strong student centeredness; the road towards achieving the Master’s degree will be designed by you, the student.Victor Jetten, professor in Natural Hazards and Disaster Risk Management at ITC
