Environmental and Infrastructure Planning (EIP) focuses on the sustainable planning of environmental issues, infrastructure and water.
It does so from a spatial planning perspective, which implies exploring the relationship between societal and political processes on one side and infrastructure development, realisation and management, concerning roads, utilities, water systems on the other. The Master's Degree programme Environmental and Infrastructure Planning (EIP) aims at students with an academic interest in designing policy solutions for problems in the field of environment (for example climate change), water (e.g. flooding) and infrastructure (e.g. mobility growth). The programme emphasises the integration of technical knowledge with knowledge of planning and planning processes. The subject area of EIP is strongly embedded in society and hence of direct interest to many parties. Examples of EIP related spatial problems are abounded, be it the High Speed Train system, the Betuwe railroad or the creation of lakes with artificial islands for up-market housing. The realisation of physical infrastructure or policies such as road pricing are good examples of sensitive subjects that need to be handled with academic authority and appropriate planning skills.
