Goal 11 : Sustainable Cities and Communities

“Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable”


We provide 30 modules in the bachelor and master programs where our local and foreign educators provide high quality education with a modern curriculum and more than 700 students have the opportunity to choose these modules. During these programs we aim to enhance our students’ theoretical knowledge within classrooms and implement practical skills on the field.

What we are doing

Making cities safe and sustainable means ensuring access to secure and affordable housing, and upgrading slum settlements.

The increasing concentration of people in urban environments means that social, economic and environmental demands for living and working are under pressure.

The lifestyle of people is influenced by their physical environment. Greening of cities improves air quality, reduces noise nuisance, encourages physical activity, reduces stress and aggression and increases social cohesion. We encourage you to use public transport and bicycles.
