Our Courses on Sustainable Cities

By the year 2030, 60% of the world’s population will live in cities. This ever-growing urban society leads to increasing pressure on the built environment, our carbon footprint, natural resources and raw materials. TU Delft’s continuing education aims to contribute to resilient and sustainable cities to protect its communities from climate change and other physical, social and economic urban adversities and challenges.

Ranked in the top 5 in the QS World Rankings in Civil Engineering, Architecture and Built Environment, TU Delft offers a wide range of courses in various disciplines to support urban professionals, businesses and governments. These courses provide knowledge and skills in the use of smart social, technological and political innovations.

Architects, architectural designers, building technologists and building engineers are for instance looking for new knowledge and skills about energy, climate and resource efficiency that can be successfully and profitably applied into the design, construction and management of the built environment.

Policy makers, urbanists and city planners can learn how to plan, create and manage urban spaces and local environments in more sustainable, participatory and inclusive ways.

Sustainability and resilience to climate change can also be achieved through new ways of designing and manufacturing products. TU Delft offers product architects, industrial designers, managers, entrepreneurs and business innovators to improve their knowledge and skills in sustainable design as well as circular economy principles and techniques to secure supply of materials, reduce waste and maximize value creation.

Our courses, often developed in close collaboration with industry, cover a broad range of solutions, not just from a technical or engineering perspective but also encompassing policy and social and economic factors. Together these are key to the transition to a sustainable, low-carbon and resilient society.
