The first two weeks of MSc Urbanism graduation programme are dedicated to the orientation of students. Students gain information on the expertise of different research groups at the Department of Urbanism, to develop their thesis plans. Discussion aims at the refinement of plans and the finding of appropriate mentors. The Complex cities group assists in this during two events:
