Our environment is constantly changing. Humans and nature must adapt – be it due to an increase in greenhouse gases, competing new land uses, dwindling biodiversity or rapid urbanization. Environmental Planning offers the skills and methods to react to these changes. Our goal is to coordinate human demands on our natural environment in an efficient and ecologically sound way in order to ensure sustainable development.

Postgraduates studying Environmental Planning at the TU Berlin will learn to meet the challenges posed by a fast changing world and environment. This is achieved by the degree program’s interdisciplinary approach and also by multifaceted cooperations with partners from the public and private sector. Furthermore, the program teaches a cross-section of skills essential to environmental planners including ecological, creative, social engineering, and planning know-how. This allows students to develop competences in landscape planning, environmental assessment, nature and biodiversity conservation, environmental economics, remote sensing, and in handling geographic information systems.

The program puts a strong focus on two study projects, each of them lasting one term. Innovative planning or research problems are addressed in small groups. In these projects, students not only gain technical expertise, but are also given the opportunity to further develop their time management, communicative and analytical skills. Our Masters in Environmental Planning provides for an innovative and stringent program. The balance between structural guidelines and a broad range of elective courses encourages personal development.
