Urban and Regional Planning

Developments in society, economy and environment result in ongoing changes in patterns and forms of urbanization. The task of urban and regional planning is to understand, analyse and shape these facets of urbanization through proactive and purposive intervention.

The three-year bachelor’s program prepares students for these tasks by combining various disciplines according to an integrated understanding of planning: urban design, engineering principles, sociological, economic, ecological, legal, cultural and historical aspects are interdisciplinarily linked and taught at the Institute of Urban and Regional Planning in close conjunction with other institutes of TU Berlin.

In the two-year master’s program, students can choose between five specialization areas: Urban Design and Building Culture, Urban Redevelopment and Integrated Urban Planning, Spatial Planning, Law and Planning Administration, Global Urban Development Processes, Urban and Regional Research.
