Master-level studies involve specialized study in a field of research or an area of professional practice. Earning a master’s degree demonstrates a higher level of mastery of the subject. Earning a master’s degree can take anywhere from a year to three or four years. Before you can graduate, you usually must write and defend a thesis, a long paper that is the culmination of your specialized research.

Sustainability put into practice could take many different forms, effecting both the individual and the larger community. There are ecovillages and sustainable cities created just for the purpose of minimizing the use of important resources. There are also techniques, such as sustainable architecture, which help promote this ideal.

Cities and communities are the main venues of key challenges of modern times, which we have to understand and be able to solve by including citizens to enhance sustainable development and quality of life.

A smart city is a city that is based on the needs of its citizens and that uses advanced technologies to promote competitiveness, sustainable development and a better quality of life.

Due to the fact that the process of urbanization is going to intensify, the cities will have to face challenges of sustainable development at different levels: environmental, social and economic, especially in less developed countries where the urbanization level is much greater. It is essential to introduce integrative policy forms for a better quality of life of both urban and rural populations, and for a greater social inclusion.... [-]

The MBA program Building Sustainability – Management Methods for Energy Efficiency will teach students skills, methods and concepts to consider different approaches, to u ... [+]

Program Background

The concept of the German “Energiewende” – literally, energy transition – has gained international attention. It includes a variety of measures that aim at making Europe’s largest economy free of fossil fuels and nuclear energy. In order to attain this, all areas of energy production and consumption will have to go through a transition process. Besides mobility and industry, buildings are therefore one of the key factors for a successful Energiewende.

Most of all, this implies re-directing from a mainly fossil-fueled energy supply towards renewable energies and a much more energy-efficient use of energy in buildings and urban areas. This is one of the largest and most urgent challenges of current urban development and other social disciplines.... [-]

Become a professional disaster risk management specialist

The Master of Disaster Management provides humanitarian professionals with solid interdisciplinary knowledge and skills that meet the needs of modern emergency management and disaster response.

Experience from recent major disasters, changes in the humanitarian field, the changing nature of a conflict, and climate change impact all have made it clear that a holistic approach to disasters and crisis management is needed to substantially reduce losses and deal with new challenges the current system seems ill-equipped to respond to.

A coherent and holistic approach to disaster risk management is not without challenges. The decision has to be based on a politically, economically, socially, culturally, and environmentally sustainable foundation and rooted in sound development policies. Risk reduction needs to underpin and guide decisions in Preparedness, Response and Recovery planning, and programmes. Professionals with an adequate knowledge base and the right skills are invaluable if these challenges are to be met.... [-]

The Course

The course aims at elaborating the future of sports cars design through the analysis of current design trends and through philosophical thinking about the profound changes that the “car product” is undergoing.

The availability of new and innovative energy sources, from solar to hydrogen, will not only create new machines but also a radical shift in the transportation paradigm. Aesthetics and use of sports cars will go through a complete rethinking and a new vision is required.

The objective of this course is to create a new design vernacular for future sports cars through a semiotic analysis of the significance of sport and its relation with the human being. At the Ferrari and Lamborghini Museums, it will be possible to examine in depth the significance of sports cars in the very context where they were first created.... [-]
