Complex challenges and the large variety of people involved in those, call for a multi-disciplinary, co-operative approach to Urban Design. In the face of these issues architects, urban and regional planners, landscape architects, environmental planners as well as sociologists have to cooperate closely. The two-year master’s program Urban Design from TU Berlin is a field of study positioned at the juncture of these four disciplines. Based on historical and international experiences, it responds to the prevailing challenges of urban development, city and town planning as well as sustainability.
Urban development requires a multidisciplinary, cooperative approach both because of the complexity of the tasks and the large number of affected and participating actors. The master’s program in Urban Design brings together architecture, urban and regional planning, sociology, and landscape architecture.
In cooperation with Tongji University in Shanghai, China, you have the opportunity to complete the degree program Urban Design as a double master’s degree (dual degree program). Participants in the special program study together for one year in Berlin and for one year in Shanghai.
