«I did an MSE because I wanted to expand my knowledge in the field of spatial planning, regional development and Swiss planning legislation. By taking the MSE degree course, I wished to develop professionally and put my work in landscape planning on a broader footing. The course also gives students the opportunity to familiarize themselves with subject areas of interest and to study these in greater depth.»
