Do you wonder about how cities and urban regions can become more sustainable and liveable? How to design innovative policy solutions for pressing environmental, water and road infrastructure problems?
Then the international Master's programme in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning (EIP) will fit you well. The programme is unique in integrating three elements: (1) the analysis of urban and regional planning strategies and governance approaches for highly dynamic and complex situations, (2) international comparative research and learning, and (3) 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 environmental 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. Our dedicated staff, will challenge you to rethinking 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.
If you are looking for a 2 year master, we offer two Double Degree programmes: Development Planning and Infrastructure Management (with ITB Bandung, Indonesia) and Water and Coastal Management (with University of Oldenburg, Germany). You can also integrate EIP with our two year Research Master in Spatial Sciences. Please visit the Spatial Sciences programmes page for more information.
Taking part in this programme was a life-changing experience
I joined the MSc programme in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning as part of the international Double Degree MSc Water and Coastal Management.
The Master's in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning gave me the knowledge and tools I needed to make better decisions from a broader insight
Our job as planners is to asses and create innovative solutions from a deeper understanding of the problem, taking into account the different stakeholders to reach consensus.
My Master's degree in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning has definitely opened many doors within the working environment of my city
The Master's in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning is a challenging and motivating program for planners who, like myself, aim to contribute towards creating better places to live in, hence, more habitable and sustainable cities.
