Studio-based with emphasis on design and multi-media communication skills and problem-based learning projects which equip students to become professionals in urban design. It will enable to help students to understand and face the challenges associated with shaping cities and urban development in Hong Kong, China, and the world.
In addition, the programme will enable students to acquire broad knowledge of issues and methods in urban studies, including urban planning and design, urban policy and management, land development, real estate economics, sustainability, community development, public participation, urban renewal, conservation and place making. In the final year, students will challenge an independent research project on contemporary urban issues. As the field has an international scope, study abroad is encouraged, and could be an element of professional training.
