Masterutbildning i hållbar stadsgestaltning
Making the world's growing cities healthy, attractive and sustainable is an exceptional challenge. Lund University, located in the dynamic Copenhagen-Malmö region, is a global leader in balancing urban economic growth and environmental development and offers superb resources for studying the diverse aspects of sustainability and design.
The Master's programme in Sustainable Urban Design at the School of Architecture has a well-established reputation for developing humanistic modern design that promotes liveability, community building and social sustainability. Drawing on best practices and advanced research into urban form, urban quality and sustainability, the Master's programme produces highly skilled professionals, capable of meeting the challenge of sustainable urban design as productive, successful individuals who are creative, insightful and intellectually skilled in their approach to the profession and their practice.
Theoretical learning is supported by hands-on projects aiming to find solutions to real-world issues. The programme features international collaboration workshops, where professionals and students from architecture, landscape architecture and urban design from around the world gather to discuss and design proposals for a given sustainable urban design challenge.
In addition to the taught courses, all of our students undertake a research project for their Master's thesis. The project can be academic in nature, or developed within industry, and can be carried out either in Lund or abroad. Examples of companies where students have performed their degree projects include EFLA Consulting Engineers (Iceland) and Sweco Architects (Sweden).
Study trips, inventories, surveying, environmental studies etc. are integrated into the programme. Study trips are optional, and all students participate at their own expense. Students who cannot participate will be given alternative assignments in Lund. The study trip destinations may vary from year to year. Previous destinations include Norway, Great Britain, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland and China. Study trips may be subject to cancellation/alteration due to unforeseeable circumstances, such as natural disasters and/or visa denial.
