Spatial Planning and Design is based on research. Not only are you educated to become a researcher, lecturers also use their own research and others to keep the education as recent and relevant as possible. The education you receive is therefore partly based on the research being done at the faculty right now!
The research at the faculty consists of several themes that are summerized in the research programme: tWIST - towards Well-being, Innovation and Spatial Transformation. You will see these themes in your education.
