The master program addresses the urban planners and other professionals such as architects, engineers, traffic planners, economists, geographers, sociologist, historians) in order to achieve the credentials to join the Romanian Register of Urban Planners.
The curricula is structured according to the the two cycles of studies (8+4 semesters):
- semesters (first cycle) are dedicated to the basic general knowledge (theory and design practice) interrelated with the courses of Faculty of Architecture.
