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 program in Environmental and Infrastructure Planning (EIP) will fit you well. The program 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 environmentally 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 rethink 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's, we offer five Double Degree programs. You can also integrate EIP with our two-year Research Master's in Spatial Sciences.
