The two-year Master’s programme in Spatial Engineering at the University of Twente (UT) 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.
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.
With a degree in Spatial Engineering you will have plenty of job opportunities as a spatial engineer or project manager in consultancy, or with the government, NGOs or international organizations.
You could get involved in water management – for instance, designing flood risk strategies in rapidly growing cities – developing renewable energy, environmental remote sensing and many other exciting fields.
This programme holds NVAO accreditation.
