Bachelor of Engineering in Spatial Management

About the program

Spatial Management offered at KUE is an interdisciplinary first-cycle engineering degree, delivered over 7 semesters in accordance with Polish regulations for undergraduate engineering degrees.

The entire degree is delivered in Polish.

The program combines elements of economics, geography, urban planning, architecture, sociology, spatial planning and public policy, which allows students to gain comprehensive knowledge in the field of spatial development. The main goal of the BEng in Spatial Management is to study and shape spatial development processes, i.e. the way in which cities, regions, countries function and develop. Studies on KUE degrees are focused on the economic aspects of spatial management and space management, and graduates of this program are highly valued on the labor market.

Employment opportunities

Graduates of BEng in Spatial Management can find employment in various institutions and companies related to spatial planning, public investments, real estate market, regional policy and land development. They can work in public administration at various levels (e.g. in city and commune/parish offices, provinces, ministries), as well as in consulting industry providing services in the field of spatial and investment planning. An academic career is also possible.

Program strengths

Core strengths center on interdisciplinarity, practicality, flexibility, development and career opportunities.

The studies prepare specialists in shaping the spatial organization of socio-economic development, including:

  1. Design of public spaces,
  2. Constructing strategic development programming in territorial units,
  3. Resource management and spatial development forecasting based on specialized models,
  4. Ise of IT tools in the field of design, GIS analysis and modeling of economic processes.

Currently offered specialties

Spatial Planning and Engineering – this specialty focuses on the design and management of space, taking into account both technical and social aspects. Students gain knowledge in the field of urban planning, landscape architecture, construction, transport and communication, spatial information systems, infrastructure management and law.

Entry requirements

High school diploma, and completion of high school exams in:

  • First subject: foreign language
  • Second subject (optional): geography, history, Polish language, mathematics, social studies

Competition for places is points-based, with a maximum of 200 points to be gained (100 from each high school exam subject).
