SPRING (Spatial Planning for Regions in Growing Economies) is a two year Masters degree programme, where spatial planners address up to date topics of spatial planning in development countries. For instance they are discussing the rapid growth of megacities, searching for solutions in the conflict between environmental protection and economic development as well as dealing with strategies to improve traffic systems. The course starts with one year of study in Dortmund, Germany, followed by a second year at one of the four partner universities in Asia, Africa or Latin America. At the TU Dortmund University SPRING is with now more than 25 years the oldest Master course and was the first one being conducted in English.
