Sustainable Transition of Our Cities
The Sustainable Cities programme of Aalborg University aims to teach you about how we can achieve the sustainable transition of cities. This is done in two parts. First by covering issues of engineering by looking at four main infrastructure sectors being 1) resources (waste) 2) energy, 3) water and climate change and 4) transport and mobility. Second, by looking at political science, synergies across sectors and different forms of impact assessment.
During the two-year Master, we cover challenges related to each of the specific infrastructure sectors, present specific tools for quantifying and analysing the challenges as well as understand how policy, citizens, practice and organisations influence sustainable transitions.
The graduates from this Master of Science are educated to be capable of creating the framework for the Sustainable Cities of the future, where economic, social, technical and environmental elements are integrated in new ways. By understanding technical elements of the sustainable engineering solutions, but also being able to facilitate change in political and economic systems, the Sustainable Cities engineer can play an important role in the sustainable transition as a sustainable city planner.
