After your bachelor

After successful completion of the Built Environment degree programme you are entitled to the degree of Bachelor of Science.

Your career

After your graduation you can decide whether to find a job or carry on studying - at master's level.

Get a job

Accessibility, liveability, safety, sustainability and social equality are important themes within Built Environment. The work you can do is very diverse, but often has to do with the (re)design of a street, neighbourhood, region or even country. But they also involve devising mobility concepts and systems for moving people and goods safely and comfortably.

You can work for municipalities, water authorities, provinces, project developers, research institutes, and consultancy and design firms in positions such as traffic manager, mobility manager, urban manager, strategic planner, area developer or urban designer.

Obtain a Master's Degree

If you choose to continue your studies, there are plenty of possibilities. Breda University of Applied Sciences has made a collaborative arrangement with two education institutes, allowing better preparation for and completion of your further studies.

FH Joanneum, Austria

You can move on to further study at a professional master’s programme in Energy & Transport Management at FH Joanneum in Kapfenberg (Austria, near Graz). Since there is an overlap between this master’s programme and the specialisation area Mobility, this two-year master’s track can be reduced to 14 months. 

No tuition fees involved. To encourage foreign students to come and study in Austria, they do not need to pay any tuition fees. Accommodation is in an on-campus student flat in Kapfenberg (rental rate of approx. €230 per month).

Utrecht University

You can transfer to the academic master’s programme in Spatial Planning or Human Geography at Utrecht University. The transition between the specialisation areas Mobility and Spatial Planning and these master’s programmes has been optimised. The pre-master’s programme can be combined with the last year at Breda University of Applied Sciences, after which students can gain direct access to Utrecht University to complete a master’s programme in one year’s time.

More possibilities for transfer programmes

Upon completion of the programme in Built Environment students can transfer to various master’s programmes in the field. To be able to transfer to an academic master’s programme, you will first have to attend a pre-master’s programme. The pre-master’s programme will be offered at the relevant universities. Upon completion of such a track, you can obtain a Master of Science (MSc) degree at various universities in one year’s time.
