The MSc programme offers each student a creative combination of problem-based learning (PBL) and realistic projects with “hands-on” challenges that equip the student to address challenges pertaining to e.g. climate change, temporary urban development projects, urban mobility, projects and strategies of the culture city, the urban landscape and city growth.
