This fourth-year programme is developed by the department of Environmental Studies and is open to students from all kinds of disciplines from all over the world. It is based on a unique concept within the HAS educational programme. It is a project based programme in which the challenge is to find solutions to sustainability challenges that real life clients are facing. Those challenges lie in the field of spatial planning, development, production and consumption. We want to equip students in this programme with knowledge and skills, which help them to take the driver’s seat in their own professional development. Within their project students are invited to focus on their personal interests, talents and individual learning goals. Students are also responsible for formulating their own educational curriculum by contacting experts or asking for training on demand.
The programme will take place during the first semester of the academic year. During 20 weeks, the group of students will operate as one consultancy team, working on one or more sustainability projects.
The projects will benefit from the variety of expertise and talent contributed by students with different backgrounds. A basic understanding of sustainability and a good understanding of your own expertise will suffice to take part in this programme. An introduction to sustainability is offered in the beginning of this course.
