Do you want to create the cities of the future? Through the master's programme in Urban Design, you learn to apply professional design methods, working analytically with complex issues concerning urbanity, urban planning, the city's space and the development of cities, nodes, and mobility.

You can help create the city of the future. As an urban designer, you work with challenges related to urban development and urban planning. You help to shape cities, creating new spaces for people, and new ways of moving around these cities.  

Over the course of the Urban Design programme, you learn to include cities’ residents and societal issues on the drawing board when, together, we work with the city's architecture. The programme thus focuses on designing cities for and with people.

Career Opportunities  

Urban designers with the ability to work with the organisation of building development and the transformation of urban spaces are needed everywhere to give people experiences and exciting and new urban areas to live and move around in. For example, Urban Design graduates can be employed by: 
  • private architectural firms
  • public sectors with a focus on urban planning in practice, e.g. municipalities and regions
  • design studios
  • consulting engineering firms.
