Land and Water Management

This technically oriented programme teaches students to work out feasible and sustainable solutions to topical land and water issues. Specific attention is focused on addressing climate effects. In addition to dealing with soil, water, the environment, and Nature, students also work on their social and communication skills, and learn to work on a project basis. The study programme features three different specialisations, viz. “Soil and Civil Engineering”, “Applied Hydrology”, and “Sustainable Area Development”.

A part-time mode of study is open to students who possess relevant work experience. This offers the additional option of first earning an Associate Degree (AD) in two years. Subsequently (immediately after or later on), another two-year course will lead to a Bachelor’s degree.

Management of the Living Environment

This programme focuses on the sustainable and integrated development and design of an area. Each area has its own unique combination of landscape features, functions, and possibilities. Making plans for the future in collaboration with all the parties involved requires a great deal of expertise, creativity, and social skills. Students learn to involve stakeholders in the plans, direct all the processes like a “spider in a web”, and deal with – occasionally – conflicting interests. The knowledge they amass to this end involves areas such as the climate, landscape, soil science, geology, hydrology, cultural history, ecology, and economics.

Built Environment: Civil Engineering

The Civil Engineering track is part of the Built Environment programme. This track focuses on the design, construction, maintenance, and management of infrastructural structures: bridges, flood defence systems, roads, railways, waterways, ports, airports, and tunnels. The Civil Engineering track features four specialisations: Construction, Project Management, Mobility, and Water. The “Water” specialisation teaches the importance of creating room for water in urban and rural areas, for example, in the form of safe dykes, storm surge barriers, and ports, or the design of watercourses, sewer systems, and water purification plants. Subjects include Hydraulic Engineering, Water Management, Water Quality, and Water Purification. Fourth-year students may opt for the Climate-Proof City minor.

Landscape and Environment Management

Landscape and Environment Management is the only professional higher education programme in the Randstad conurbation that focuses on green space. The domain is considered from various perspectives, viz. ecology, spatial planning, society, the environment, and the economy. This broad-based programme features two specialisations: “City & the Environment”, and “Nature & Landscape”. These tracks teach all the relevant aspects and backgrounds to the sustainable planning, design, and management of our living environment. The focus is on both people and Nature.

We work with concrete questions from actual practice. Companies and organisations like to work with our students, because they know that students frequently come up with new and creative solutions to complicated issues.

Do you have an eye for Nature, the landscape, and your environment? Are you someone who wonders how the growing world population will impact the environment? Or someone who would like to know more about the connection between climate change and its effects on Nature? Or how cities can be made greener and healthier? Then Landscape and Environment Management is the right programme for you!
