You will train as a specialist in regional planning and development, and learn to analyse social and regional dynamics, as well as create proposals and make decisions in different planning and development projects.

The first semester will focus on producing region-wide planning tools and the second semester will be devoted to completing your training in the field you find most interesting: mobility, tourism, local development, water management, etc. always from the regional perspective. You will enrol in professional work placements in businesses and administrations where many former students now work as professionals.

From day one, you will be working on-field with the city's planning department, municipal technicians, architects and town planners on real projects which will later be presented to the town. In addition, the master's degree includes a series of conferences in which first-class visiting professors participate, experts in town planning, housing, development, mobility, etc.

Once you have completed the master's degree you will be prepared to work as a technician in regional planning, in socio-economic neighbourhood studies, urban development projects, regional management, and as a mobility consultant.
