About the programme
On the two-year Master’s degree programme in Urban Design, you specialise in one of the following areas:
- Mobilities and Urban Studies
- Urban Architecture
The focal point of the Urban Design programme of Aalborg University is the context, function and form of the city, and the societal challenges facing the city: climate change, sustainability, welfare, urban growth and urban monp.
The programme focuses on developing knowledge, skills and competencies to identify and work with complex urban issues in an integrated academic perspective that combines architectural, functional, technical and social science aspects.
With a master's degree in Urban Design, you will be able to take part in the important interdisciplinary task of creating innovative, sustainable and functional cities that meet the living conditions of the future and create a fertile ground for well-being and development.
At Urban Design, you will work in a practical and theoretical manner with academic issues. You will work extensively with urban, architectural and mobility theory, and develop a strong, broad toolbox with both analogue and digital methods for analysis, design and communication: from sketching and modelling, to citizen involvement and ethnography, and to tracking and simulation technologies.
