Module Content second year

The second year at the partnering universities in Brazil, Chile, Ghana, The Philippines and Tanzania

Students chose their second year destination during the first semester at TU Dortmund University. SPRING staff from all universities guide them during this process by considering their academic and professional backgrounds as well as their future planning interests and endeavors.

Each of the SPRING partnering institution has a special academic expertise, which is reflected in the respective curriculum and the course offer. The specialization or study focus vary from Urban Planning at Ardhi University, to Sustainable Development Planning and Management at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, or Environmental Economics in Planning at the Universidad Austral de Chile or Special Problems in Regional Planning (Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction and Management) at the University of the Philippines or Planning, governance and public policy for sustainable urban agglomerations at the Federal University of ABC.
