Interact with staff and students in an international learning environment
Prepare yourself for a professional career! This cannot be done by lectures and books only, but needs application of knowledge in real life practical situations (projects). At the School of Governance, Law and Urban Development we work in projects, where students from different disciplines, like Environmental Science, Urban Planning and Regional Development work together to analyse situations and design solutions. Every student brings his/her own expertise and cultural background. Project work requires basic theoretical understanding from several fields of study and many different skills like co-operation skills, negotiating skills, communication skills, cultural awareness and research skills (methodology).
Examples of these projects are the redesign of a harbour area or the design of a new housing district, an Environmental Impact Assessments for a new airport, railroad, or a river by-pass. To conduct these researches students are trained in the aforementioned professional skills. To learn the basic concepts, lectures and excursions are organized.
