Urban Ecological Planning (UEP) is a practice based program that enables students to develop skills and knowledge to address complex urban issues in rapidly changing social, cultural, political and environmental contexts. The program stresses on an integrated approach to strategic spatial change, with a specific focus on participatory, inclusive and developmental planning practice.

The programme provides a strong link to practice and seeks to challenge urban practitioners from all backgrounds, with an underpinning ethos that the best approaches begin with people themselves.

Job prospects

Our past international students have been successfully employed in various other places across the globe. Many are university teachers, researchers or development professionals in both NGOs and government service. Others are active as experts in the private industry related to urban development. Some UEP alumni have also been employed as interns or consultants at different United Nations and European Union agencies and other multilateral institutions. In Norway, students get motivated to work for the local governments and community organizations to find integrated, cross-sector solutions to urban problems.
