The world we live in is an increasingly urban one as cities currently account for half the world’s population. By 2030, it is expected that three out of every five people will live in an urban environment.
Sustainable management of the urban environment has become one of the major challenges of the 21st century as you will learn during the two-year master's Urban Environmental Management programme at the university. This development calls for control of the environmental impacts of urbanisation like growing traffic, increasing waste emissions, deteriorating air and water quality, and growth in energy and resource consumption.
The programme emphasises the development of
through a combination of teamwork, simulation exercises, field trips and an individual research project.
The coursework of the MSc Urban Environmental Management consists of one foundation course (common across all majors), at least two urban courses (out of four) which are specific for this programme and two to three courses that are unique to the major of your choice. The course work concludes with the European Workshop, which is an extensive fieldwork assignment which is commissioned by a local authority and carried out in a selected country of the European Union.
