Masters in Spatial Science. Study programme The Master in Geography and Spatial Planning is designed to respond to the growing need for highly qualified experts that can embrace the multi- dimensionality and complexity of the evolution of cities and regions, reflecting global changes and local dynamics. Despite the demand for European or transnational coordination in spatial planning, national planning cultures and concepts within Europe continue to be markedly heterogeneous. You will be prepared for understanding a wide range of European and transnational planning philosophies and processes, as well as transcending current limits. The programme addresses key social, economic and environmental challenges with a geographical and multi-scalar perspective. Sustainable planning strategies require a holistic approach and push researchers and experts to enlarge the scope of their competences and move beyond singular disciplinary culture. You will gain an understanding of integrative approaches and be trained in a wide range of approaches in geographical analysis and spatial planning. You will be prepared to meet the demands for sustainable spatial planning strategies and improved urban and territorial governance processes. Our offer Our programme is entirely taught in English and benefits from a proximity to European institutions and international research centres. Our students come from about 20 countries and so does our research group! We provide a unique combination of academic courses and practical work. You will learn to identify and explain conceptual and theoretical models and work with geographic information systems, computer-aided cartography, statistical tools as well as qualitative assessment and survey methods. The programme builds on a mix of experienced researchers and practitioners. Teaching staff includes academic scholars from the University of Luxembourg and partner universities in order to stand at the forefront of research concepts and analysis techniques. In addition, distinguished experts from European and regional institutions and agencies contribute to the teaching programme, thus sharing best practice and enhancing the dialogue between academic research and planning practice. Your future Our Master leads to a variety of professional careers at different geographical scales and in various sectors, as well as an opening to PhD programmes. Most of our graduates work in private and public spatial planning bodies, mobility and transport consultancies, urban and regional development agencies, European and cross-border institutions, as well as in universities and research centres.

Programme overview

Geomatics involve the acquisition, management and analysis of phenomena with a spatial reference. Spatial analysis finds applications in many areas, such as health, the environment, urban planning, geology, archaeology and agronomy. This programme aims to provide knowledge in spatial analysis for environmental applications. It includes studies in geographical information systems (GIS), remote sensing and physical geography. Models and theories for understanding the Earth´s climate and ecosystems are integrated with knowledge for collecting environmental information using remote sensing, storing the information in databases and theories behind GIS.
