Landscape architecture is emerging as one of the most promising disciplines of the built environment for which the Netherlands has a good global reputation. Landscape architects work on the planning and design of residential, industrial, recreational, agricultural, natural and infrastructural landscapes.
They are employed by agencies specialising in landscape architecture, and by interdisciplinary architecture, urbanism and engineering firms. Government agencies also employ landscape architects in planning, design and policymaking positions and as project leaders and researchers. Graduates are well placed to find employment in these fields.
The Landscape Architecture track is one of five specialisation tracks within the Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences master programme. On graduation, students receive Master of Science degree in Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences (Landscape Architecture track).
With a diploma of the Architecture, Landscape Architecture or Urbanism track you can - after completion of the two-year period of Professional Practice Experience - apply for registration in the Dutch Register of Architects, which allows you to use the protected title of Architect, Landscape Architect or Urban Designer in the Netherlands. The Building Technology and Management in the Built Environment tracks, as well as the Post-master programme The Berlage, do not allow you to register in the Dutch Register of Architects. Read more
