Course planning

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. Hereby the outline of the study programme Built Environment/International Spatial Development.

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.

There will be a range of projects for you to work on together with your fellow students and external clients.
