During the Surveying, Planning and Land Management programme from Aalborg University you can specialise in:

  • Land Management 
  • Surveying and Mapping 

The aim of the programme in Surveying, Planning and Land Management with specialisation in Land Management is to provide you with knowledge and competence in dealing with spatial development, governance and land administration systems. It inspires the development and implementation of land-use related policies and regulation, as well as specific land management strategies and spatial plans in both urban and rural areas.

Land management is a central activity in society that plays a deciding part in the economy and in the organisation of land related rights and responsibilities. It is a key element in how we shape democracy, living conditions and the environment. It deals with managing relations between people, policies and places in support of sustainable spatial development. Land management is therefore concerned with the actual governing as well as innovations in the governance of land. It includes careful consideration of the interaction between public authorities, private developers and businesses, land owners, and citizens.
