Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Nordic: Sustainable Urban Transitions
The Nordic Master Programme in Sustainable Urban Transitions (NMP SUT) is a Nordic double degree master programme which has been developed by the Nordic Five Tech (N5T) collaboration. N5T is a strategic alliance of the five leading technical universities in Denmark (DTU), Finland (Aalto), Norway (NTNU) and Sweden (Chalmers, KTH).
Processes of urban planning, design, transition and management are highly complex and laden with compound uncertainties. NMP SUT provides integrated knowledge development and capacity building to young professionals and offers a comprehensive and relevant master programme in the urban development topic area.
NMP SUT forms a new joint subject area: planning and design for Sustainable Urban Transitions, where systems thinking, participative and scenario approaches, risk reduction, research by design and generative planning are key concepts. This is achieved through inter-/transdisciplinary competence building developing capacities to
- understand principles of human settlements,
- engage in new and shared knowledge production and problem-solving and
- develop improved practices contributing to positive urban change.
