Our aim is to provide students with the capability to harness the power of data-driven approaches in ways that are theoretically informed and integrated within policy. Only then, can we recognize and respond to the inherent dynamism of the urban environment.
As the nature, management and growth of cities become more complex, urban planning professionals must have more sophisticated capabilities. This programme marries the foundations of urban theory with cutting edge data analytics methods to meet that critical need.
