What will I learn?

International Spatial Development

In our globalising and urbanising world, ever greater importance is placed on cities built for human well-being, with attractive living and working environments, traffic accessibility, traffic safety and sustainability. In the study programme International Spatial Development, a differentiation area of Built Environment, you will explore spatial development from an integrated perspective, based on urban planning, urban design and mobility – looking across country borders.

After your bachelor

This programme prepares you for a career in the creation and optimisation of international living environments and in the design, functions and accessibility of areas or locations. You will be trained to become a professional capable of operating in the international market. You will be working as a Strategic Designer, Urban Planner and Manager of Sustainable (Urban) Mobility at (inter)national companies.

After your graduation in Built Environment you can decide whether to find a job or carry on studying - at master's level.

Graduates are equipped to fill a range of positions, such as mobility consultant, traffic researcher or traffic and transport planner at (inter)national:

  • advisory agencies
  • multinationals
  • small and medium-sized enterprises
  • government services

Please be aware of the fact that many graduates start at the bottom of the career ladder - in assistant positions - and work their way up to management positions.

This programme will start with a broad basis of knowledge of the built environment. Throughout your course of study, you will have various specialisation opportunities. Various aspects relating to space and mobility will be dealt with: behaviour, design, planning and research. You will learn how to design safe roads, manage urban planning efficiently, influence people towards making clever transport choices and think and design strategically.

You will also learn to plan and design, from the perspective of area development in the broadest sense of the word. You will produce sketches and designs for land use and you will build scale models. In this process, you will take into account a variety of external factors: is everything financially viable; how do stakeholders react; is everything in accordance with relevant laws and regulations?

In design workshops you will attend classes delivered by specialists from the field who will teach you all about the required design skills. You work on projects together with fellow-students. You follow courses and training sessions in small groups.
