Working towards sustainable regional development, AGROCAMPUS OUEST Landscaping and Engineering graduates are specialists in public space planning and regional projects. From design through to completion, they create landscaping projects in line with the scientific, technical, economic and human character of the environment. Enterprising, creative and innovative, they will use these skills, in France and internationally, in the private sector (agencies, design offices, construction firms) and in the public or semi-public sectors (regional authorities, state bodies, public service organisations).

Skills

As high-level specialists fully conversant with environmental challenges and development issues, graduates boast a multi-disciplinary education, focussed on the sustainable development of resources and regions, enabling them to draw on knowledge in the fields of life sciences and technology, engineering sciences, economics, humanities and social sciences.

Able to understand and manage complex systems and to model their functioning and evolution, they hold the necessary skills to:
- analyse and understand regional biophysical and anthropogenic dynamics, relations and interactions between spaces and societies
- complete original landscaping projects : from design to assessment, by way of coordination and decision-making assistance
- design and use innovative tools, technologies and services
