Year of establishment



  • The Master's program qualifies students for the increasing demand in professional practice for planning know-how with a sound scientific foundation.
  • It teaches them the ability to organize and manage planning projects at all planning and decision-making levels as well as to lead inter-dis-ci-plin-ary working groups.
  • Together with a Bachelor's degree in a re-le-vant subject, the Master's degree additionally permits graduates to commence a traineeship in urban development within the civil service
  • The program serves, in particular, to prepare students for a career in in-ter-na-tio-nal science and re-search, but also for management functions in those areas of professional practice in spatial planning that require a close interlinking of re-search and practice.
  • The M.Sc. in Spatial Planning especially empowers students to apply their fundamental knowledge of spatial planning in an inter-dis-ci-plin-ary manner in new contexts and to further their individual ex-per-tise and skills in areas they choose themselves from the re-search activities conducted at the Department of Spatial Planning
