Urban and Regional Planning is about planning the viable and sustainable development of cities and regions. To meet this challenge, Urban and Regional Planning is interdisciplinary: it includes elements of urban development, law, social science, economics, engineering and environmental sciences. A major field of study in Cottbus is the close cooperation of spatial design and architecture. The role of urban and regional planners is to develop solutions for specific spatial problems as well as strategies for long-term development. In addition to technical and instrumental knowledge, spatial thinking and urban design are taught. Of equal importance for the practice of architecture as a profession is the knowledge of how to implement, mediate and coordinate planning at the administrative level as well as with experts and non-experts.
