It is a priority for us that you have the opportunity to work with external partners for instance in your semester projects, which can be carried out in cooperation with authorities, companies, NGOs, etc. This way you get to work on real life problems, preparing you for your professional career.

"Graduates from the Sustainable Cities programme have a comprehensive understanding of city infrastructures and future urban development, and in this way they can contribute to promoting sustainable development and tackle climate change in the future. In Copenhagen, this development is essential to our goal of becoming the world’s first CO2 neutral capital in 2025 and fossil-free in 2050 at the latest."



Graduates from the programme are expected to have many possible career paths, for example within

  • Energy companies and local authorities, creating the basis for renewable energy systems in cities.

  • Local authorities, companies and consultancies working with mobility management in urban areas.

  • NGOs and research centres working with behavioural change in users and consumers in relation to sustainable construction or energy efficient products.

Work after graduation 

The Master Programme in Sustainable Cities prepares you for jobs in many sectors and countries. If you wish to stay in Denmark after your studies having a Danish diploma helps. However, knowing the Danish language and Danish culture plays an important role finding a job in Denmark after your studies.

Here is what you need to know if you would like to work in Denmark after you graduate.
