Land in the City - Green in the City
The MSc Integrated Urbanism and Sustainable Design aims to train a new generation of urban practitioners to face the tremendous environmental, cultural and social challenges resulting from the rapid urbanisation and ongoing societal transformation currently taking place in the Middle East, North Africa (MENA) and elsewhere. Following the taught programme, IUSD students acquire reflective and practical skills to develop integrated, trans-disciplinary solutions which combine ecological and social approaches to engineering, to design and planning of landscapes, cities, and buildings. The double-degree masters programme is jointly hosted by the University of Stuttgart and Ain Shams University in Cairo. It is open to graduates and young professionals from the fields of architecture, urban planning, landscape architecture, regional planning, and civil engineering. Professionals with Bachelor degrees in geography, sociology, environmental management, political science or economics and cultural studies, Arabic, African or Islamic studies with relevant professional experience will also be considered. With the first year at Stuttgart University and the second year at Ain Shams University in Cairo, students work in multidisciplinary teams on site-specific projects in cooperation with different stakeholders, organizations and institutions, locally and internationally.
