Urban Design is about changing the world. It is about improving cities by solving societal, climatic, and cultural challenges. As a graduate in Urban Design from Aalborg University you can contribute to creating innovative and functional cities that meet the living conditions of tomorrow and create wellbeing and growth.
You will experience a creative combination of problem-based learning (PBL) and realistic projects with “hands-on” challenges.
You get the opportunity to combine architectural design competences with those of engineering and gain knowledge on socioligical aspects.
When doing project work, you work closely in groups with other students. This gives you the opportunity to cooperate, share knowledge and to explore larger and more complex academic problems than what you would have been able to do on your own. Furthermore, the groups serve a social purpose and make it easier for you to get to know your fellow students and feel more at home at the university.
Aalborg University works closely with the business community. This means that as a student you will work with real issues from companies and organisations. Thus, while you are studying, you already have the opportunity to enhance your academic competences with a business-oriented and practical angle.
The Master's programme in Urban Design allows you to specialise in one of the following subjects:
- Mobilities and Urban Studies
- Urban Architecture
Job and Career
The social need for graduates with a cross-disciplinary mobility profile, such as the one acquired through tThe MSc programme Urban Design with a specialization in Mobilities & Urban Studies at Aalborg University, is mainly found within public administration and institutions as well as private organisations, consultancies and consulting engineering firms working within the field of mobility, transport and city life.
In the public sector, on state and municipal levels alike, there is a demand for mobility graduates with skills to analyse and plan for new ways to organise social mobilities that are moving towards resource optimisation, sustainable mobilities systems and a more equal distribution of mobilities resources. State administrations and municipalities, thus, present significant public employment opportunities within the mobility profession.
