Environmental and Infrastructure Planning at the University of Groningen

 

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.
