Faculty of Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems
Climate change, digitalization and demographic change require structural adjustments and lead to a paradigm shift. The Faculty of Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems supports this societal transformation in teaching, research and transfer.
This is done through integrated management of natural resources and infrastructure systems in terms of sustainable spatial and location development. The focus is on topics such as energy transition, mobility, water management, measures to adapt to climate change, open space and landscape planning, and digitalization.
The graduates of the youngest faculty of the TH Köln design spatial development strategies and action concepts and accompany their implementation. The aim is to ensure sustainable quality of life, location and environment for the population and the economy, both regionally and internationally – because the challenges are global.
This is also reflected in the Faculty's degree courses: while the Bachelor's degree course in "Spatial Development and Infrastructure Systems" has a strong connection to the areas of structural change in Germany, our Master's programs in the field of natural resource management (also) focus on tropical and subtropical regions. Some of the Master's programs are offered jointly with partners abroad, so that students also have the opportunity to gain insights into other cultural, ecological and social realities.
