About this course

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 on-going 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. The Masters program strongly encourages applications from young professionals working in public institutions, private sector, civil society initiatives or NGOs all over the world who are interested in IUSD-related topics and who have a high level of interest in knowledge transfer and achieving a social benefit. The Admission Commission will give applicants with work expertise or equivalent internship experience preferential treatment.
