Meet our graduates

The Faculty of Spatial Science is home to talented, independent and well trained Master students in different fields. The Graduate Research Day is your opportunity to meet these students and get informed about the research activities and career ambitions.

The following specializations are represented at the Graduate Research Day:

Socio-Spatial Planning

Students in the Master Socio-Spatial Planning focus not only on planning issues such as urban space, environment and infrastructure, but also on the social aspects of changing processes. The appreciation and perception of spatial changes get a lot of attention.

Environmental & Infrastructure Planning

The research agenda of the Master EIP concentrates on the relationships between institutional innovation (improved policy making) and spatial transformation (changing cities and regions). The programme is unique in integrating three elements: (1) the analysis of urban and regional planning strategies for highly dynamic and complex situations, (2) international comparative research and learning, and (3) a focus on environmental, water and infrastructure related challenges.

Economic Geography

Students in the Master Economic Geography deal with topics related to the development of a region, such as land prices, traffic & transport, infrastructure and the labour market. In the latter students for example analyse labour productivity and wage formation, the dynamic of the regional labour market, and migration, gender and the labour market. The relation between foundations and corporate migrations, and regional development is also part of the research.

Research Master in Spatial Sciences

This intense two year Master programme includes those students that aim for a career in Academia. It is an interdisciplinary Master that includes the fields of demography, human geography and spatial planning from a social and economic science perspective.
