Program Coordinator in Darmstadt

„If you are interested in the topic "Sustainable Urban Development" not only in theory, but also in developing interesting solutions for current challenges on the basis of two metropolitan regions in the world (FrankfurtRheinMain and Ho Chi Minh City) in international and interdisciplinary student groups, then you should take a closer look at this Joint Degree Master Program. For this study programme you should have a Bachelor's degree in a field of study that has made you familiar with the topic of sustainable urban development as an architect, civil engineer, economist, environmental engineer or social scientist. You should be open to thinking in other disciplines and be prepared to take an integrated approach to finding solutions.“
