Department of Spatial and Infrastructure Planning
Welcome to the website of the Department of Spatial and Infrastructure Planning at the Technical University of Darmstadt. On the following pages you will find interesting information about the subject and information about studies, teaching and current research.
Infrastructure systems become more long-range, complex and critical. To meet the rising requirements, new projets not only have to be economically modeled but also ecological acceptable as well as supported by the society.
At the Department of Spatial and Infrastructure Planning, we deal with the potentials and problems of sustainable spatial and infrastructure development and develop orientation knowledge for political-planning action. This includes topics such as climate change and sustainable urban development, regional innovation systems (RIS), critical infrastructures (KRITIS), resource-efficient urban districts (BMBF project RessStadtQuartier) very important.
Since November 2016 the department of Spatial- and Infrastructure Planning is under the provisional direction of Prof. Dr. -Ing. Hans Joachim Linke. This is used for an intensive cooperation expressed through an integrative perspective on the topics of both departments in studies and teaching.
