About Master SPRING

The second year at the partnering universities

Students choose their second year destination during the first semester at TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. SPRING staff from our partnering universities in Brazil, Chile, Ghana, the Philippines and Tanzania guide them during this process by considering their academic and professional backgrounds as well as their fu­ture planning interests and endeavors.

Each of the SPRING partnering institution has a special academic ex­per­tise, which is reflected in the respective curriculum and the course offer. The specialization or study focus vary from

  • Urban Planning at Ardhi Uni­ver­sity (ARU)
  • Sustainable Development Planning and Management at the Kwame Nkrumah Uni­ver­sity of Science and Technology (KNUST)
  • Environmental Economics in Planning at the Universidad Austral de Chile (UACh) (currently not available)
  • Special Problems in Regional Planning (Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management) at the Uni­ver­sity of the Philippines (UP-SURP)
  • Planning, governance and public policy for sustainable urban agglomerations at the Federal Uni­ver­sity of ABC (UFABC)

The table below displays the area of specialization of each partnering uni­ver­si­ty as well as modules offered and their respective courses.
