Spatial Engineering

Geotechnical engineering: tackling the world's growing spatial problems

Address worldwide challenges using technical engineering and spatial information sciences, combined with spatial planning and governance

As populations grow, our world faces large-scale spatial problems. 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.

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
