Areas of work
In their work, landscape architects combine ecological, design and technical knowledge with the ability to adopt a networked approach and to engage in planning and conceptual work. They design parks and gardens, compile landscape development concepts and care plans for nature reserves, draw up recreation and free space concepts, configure historical gardens, assist in returning rivers to their natural state and direct construction projects. In so doing, they make an essential contribution towards shaping public and private free spaces and to the sustainable development of our landscape.
Thanks to its versatility, the education enables students to work for landscape architects, ecological and engineering consultants, gardening contractors, public authorities at communal, municipal or cantonal level, nature and environmental protection organisations, and consultants. Once they have acquired the appropriate experience, landscape architects can assume project management, leadership and overall management functions.
