The joint degree master's program “Sustainable Urban Development” is a full-time master’s program at the Vietnamese-German University (VGU) in Ho Chi Minh City and at the Technical University of Darmstadt. Just like its topic “Sustainable Urban Development”, the program itself is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary. It teaches students project-related methods to solve the challenges of sustainable urban development. The graduates of this course are able to initiate, control and implement processes of sustainable urban development at different levels (regional, city-wide, district-related, construction project-related).
You can apply for admission to the course at both the VGU and the TU Darmstadt. Those who apply to TU Darmstadt begin their studies in Darmstadt in the first semester; those who apply to the VGU begin their studies in the first semester at the VGU. In the second semester, all students study together in Darmstadt; in the third semester all students study at the VGU. In the fourth semester, every student can write his master's thesis at the university that offers the best conditions for the project he has developed.
Due to their ability to initiate, control and implement processes of sustainable urban development at different levels (regional, city-wide, district-related, building project-related), the graduates of the joint degree master’s program “Sustainable Urban Development” find positions in state and private Areas of urban development, both nationally and internationally. This includes the development of new or the conversion of existing city quarters through to the implementation of new infrastructures. Employers are also internationally operating consulting and planning offices in the field of sustainable urban development; as well as organizations in the field of development aid, e.g. the Society for International Cooperation, the Reconstruction Loan Corporation or other international organizations.
