Emil Iversen from Gotthenburg, Master student at the Programme in Climate Sensitive Urban Planning and Building

Best choice in my life

Published: 21 May 2014

This master program is one of the best choices in my life. Even though I come from Sweden, it felt like moving to another country compared to the south. Studying here really gives a perspective of how changing climatic conditions entails various challenges and opportunities for the urban environment.

There is plenty of fascinating things to explore besides school as well, such as winter sports and a beautiful nature illuminated by the midnight sun in summer. Although the Master has a strong focus on cold climate, I have been able to learn about issues and challenges related to hot climate as well.

The general urban planning courses have been very rewarding and they helped to widen my understanding of the planning process. Also, the size of the Master admits a more effective dialogue with our teachers. The Master in Climate Sensitive Urban Planning and Building has given me knowledge, skills and a contact network to pursue the career I wish.
