URBAN DESIGN Master's Degree Programme 2 years, 120 ECTS Credits

,The Urban Design Master's Degree (2 years, 120 credits) is a program based on the current urban design paradigms, one that allows architects and urbanists to develop a complex and contemporary understanding of the social, anthropologic, economic and ecologic problems faced by today's cities and societies. Through its dual-focus, both on the fundamental theoretical research in the fields of urbanism and architecture as well as on project research, the Urban Design Master's Degree provides access to a comprehensive understanding of the dynamics of today's reality, for the purpose of creating and planning the cities of the future. At the same time, it is also a rigorous platform for experimental, avant-garde urban design. The theoretical papers and the dissertation projects for which the city of Giurgiu served as a study theme were focused on three distinctive/special characteristics of this town: the city of Giurgiu is one that has developed on a radial-concentric pattern, Giurgiu the city-port which offers access to the Danube and Giurgiu the citygate which provides access to the rest of the country, at the same time offering an easy and fast access to the capital city, Bucharest. The main objectives of the projects undertaken by the urban design students were to examine and understand the development process for a problematic/challenging urban area and then apply this knowledge in order to improve, extend and transform key urban tissue sequences, such as Giurgiu's city center, the waterfront area and even an intermodal passenger transport hub - as mixed, identifiable areas in the city, with their own particular character, meant to serve as the engine for economic, social and cultural city development.
