The Master in Human Settlements addresses rapid urbanization in the developing world and contemporary urban transformations within the scope of sustainable development. The program aims to provide insight into the problems of human settlements as related to rapid change and to the interaction between modernity and tradition, formal and informal city-making.
What are the Human Settlements about?
Architecture, urbanism and spatial planning are the core disciplines of the program. Contributions from economics, geography, and anthropology, among others, complement this core.
The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes
Awarded the EIT Label in 2016
Materials provide the foundation of the modern global economy. They are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonising society as they enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility and resource efficiency, among others. Nevertheless, many materials are becoming critical.
Therefore, we need to develop robust solutions and game-changing technologies that allow for a sustainable stream of materials.
Sustainable Material Solutions with SUMA
The SUMA Master programme aims to train tomorrow’s resource engineers in collaborative work in a global world, gathering together some of the best educational programmes in the field of sustainable materials engineering in Europe. The goal is to ensure young scientists obtain a solid background in chemistry and physics, with competencies for designing and tailoring new material systems for specific functions, and with a specific view to the sustainability of processes and technologies in the field of material development. SUMA puts a particularly strong focus on innovation, entrepreneurship and leadership and takes a holistic approach to the materials paradigm by exploring circular (eco) design, materials substitution, life cycle engineering and circular economy design, materials processing and recycling, manufacturing and innovation....
