The Environmental and Infrastructure Planning programme at the University of Groningen is unique in integrating three elements:
- the analysis of urban and regional planning strategies and governance approaches for highly dynamic and complex situations
- international comparative research and learning
- a focus on environmental, water and infrastructure-related challenges.
Bringing these elements together, you will examine policy programs for flood resilient cities, integrated road infrastructure solutions and tools for more environmentally friendly urban en regional development.
You will be part of an international classroom with students originating from different regions across the globe, some of them having experience in planning practice already.
The dedicated staff will challenge you to rethink real-life planning problems by integrating concepts like self-organization, adaptive capacity, and transition management.
Through a mix of interactive teaching methods, you will strengthen your collaboration and communication skills, and your ability to work and think independently.
The Master opens up a wide field of potential careers in both the public domain and the private sectors. Graduates:
- Work in Governments: as policy advisors at international, national, provincial and local offices in charge of spatial planning, transportation or water management.
- Work in Consultancy: as project managers national and international firms in engineering, design and sustainability.
