Career prospects

The Amsterdam Academy of Architecture stimulates its students to get the maximum out of their talents. This results in an exceptionally high level and the work of students from the Academy is regularly awarded the Archiprix or other prizes.

Landscape architect
After the Master’s programme in Landscape Architecture, you will have access to a broad and well-grounded range of design and research tools and you will be able to operate as a landscape architect both nationally and internationally. Moreover, you will be able to effectively collaborate with other disciplines in the design, planning and implementation process as an independent designer within a bureau, or you can begin your own bureau. 

Sustainable transformation of the daily living environment
Landscape Architecture is a discipline with a broad orientation, focused on sustainable transformation of the daily living environment. In part because of this, the landscape architect has been given an increasingly important role within the process of spatial planning and the layout of public space in recent years. As a design-based discipline, landscape architecture is strongly related to architecture, urban planning, agricultural engineering and civil engineering.

The Landscape Architecture degree from the Academy of Architecture gives graduates the right to independent professional practice as a Landscape Architect and meets the admission requirements of the various registers that are formulated in the Dutch Academic Titles (Architects) Act. The graduate has direct access to the Dutch Register of Architects.
