The Mundus Urbano Masters Programme is jointly offered by four European Universities:
- Technische Universität Darmstadt (TU-Darmstadt) - host institution
- Universite Pierre Mendes France (UPMF)
- Universitat Internacional de Catalunya (UIC)
- Università degli Studi Roma Tor Vergata
All students spend the first year of the two-year programme at TU-Darmstadt. The second year is completed either at TU-Darmstadt itself or in one of the partner institutions, resulting in a double-degree award.
Mundus Urbano started in 2007 and since 2008 has been an Erasmus Mundus associated programme.
