The societal context

This programme will equip you to be an expert who is aware of local and societal contexts, and able to cooperate and communicate with experts representing other disciplines. As a spatial engineer, you will also be able to work in close relation with stakeholders; not only in the early stages of a project, but throughout and long after the process, too. Creating awareness is a vital element: in specific local circumstances simply introducing a different way of thinking and planning can be part of a solution.

Right for me?

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? If so, the Master’s programme in Spatial Engineering at the University of Twente may be just up your street.
