About the programme

Post-industrial cities are currently experiencing immense changes in human and environmental systems: migration, climate change, economic crises, digitalisation etc. The governance of such cities needs to take a modernised look at existing social, economic, cultural, environmental and political challenges to avoid a potential path of decline. 

The international two-year post-master programme in Redesigning Post-Industrial Cities focuses on solving contemporary challenges posed in industrial heritage settings. The course adopts many different teaching methods and approaches, from City Labs to innovative learning activities and digital storytelling. UNIC provides high-quality education and a new alternative to conventional urban studies to share best practices on central challenges to all industrialised nations.
