In January this year, the new Master’s specialization on Climate Resilient Cities was launched at the Climate Adaptation Summit 2021. It is now possible to apply for admission to the programme.
Climate-Resilient Cities is an international, interdisciplinary and immersive programme aimed at young professionals in city governments who aspire to enrol in a life-long learning trajectory, and who after graduation will continue to ‘learn on the job’ in their city to strengthen the in-city capacities to build resilience and lead change.
The programme provides theory-based disciplines and research and design-based learning methods in which the specific areas of expertise are provided by IHE Delft, and Delft University of Technology, and the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) of the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Application of the acquired methods will be applied to co-develop strategies and technical solutions together with local stakeholders and communities through a close interaction and knowledge exchange in response to relevant identified urban challenges.
Start in October
The programme will start on 21 October 2021 and the application deadline is 1 August 2021. Students who successfully complete the programme will be awarded with an MSc degree in Water Science and Engineering with specialization in Sustainable Urban Water Management.
