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 developing 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 at TU Dortmund, followed by a second year at one of the four partner universities in Asia, Africa or Latin America. With now more than 25 years SPRING is the oldest Master course at TU Dortmund and was the first conducted in English.


The department offers the following lectures in the summer semester 2021. Please note, due to the current situation, the lectures will be hold online.
