Make a career in planning offices, companies, environmental or urban planning offices

Landscape architecture is a unique mix: design and aesthetics, ecology and sustainability - plus knowledge of plants and building materials as well as scientific and technical knowledge.

Students of landscape architecture have a varied everyday life with subjects such as urban planning, landscape planning, landscaping, garden monument conservation, construction technology, vegetation science, ecology, nature conservation and climate science.

A creative focus is on designing and visualizing your own planning ideas - on the PC and as sketches. There are also projects and practical exercises.
