Landscapes form our living environment. Natural landscapes are often beautiful in themselves. However, most of those we now live in are the result of our complex interaction with the natural world.
The new generation of landscape architects and spatial planners understands the challenges we face when shaping and creating the landscapes that form a key component of our living environment.
Your goal is to study and design sustainable solutions for important landscape challenges such as climate change, energy needs, health, food security and urbanisation.
Once you have graduated in Landscape Architecture and Planning from Wageningen University and Research, the labour market offers many fields and positions related to landscape, land use and the environment.
Most graduates are employed by consultancy and engineering companies, planning and design agencies, district water boards, government agencies or universities.
A number of graduates work for large, multinational firms such as Oranjewoud, Arcadis or Sweco, while others are employed by small and medium sized companies or continue their career in research.
