Rapidly advancing urbanization, worldwide migration movements and the impacts of global climate change are just three of the challenges that clearly testify to the need for more sustainable urban development. Since its inception in 2008, the “Urban Agglomerations” English-language postgraduate Master’s degree program has been designed to provide students with an understanding of concepts and strategies for resource-efficient and climate-oriented urban planning, green forms of mobility, inclusive urban neighborhoods, public spaces and open landscapes, as well as a more resilient technical infrastructure. From the perspective of international comparison, the program most directly pursues United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 11 “Sustainable cities and communities”.
