MUA Brochure 2022The Master of Science in Urban Analytics (MSc(Urban Analytics)) is offered as both a one-year full-time and two-year part-time programme. The evolving technological basis of cities is reshaping our urban life and allowing us to understand, plan, manage and optimise cities in completely new ways. The MSc(Urban Analytics) programme is therefore designed to train and upskill students and professionals able to apply novel urban science and analytics in planning and managing the development of cities. Aiming to bridge the disciplines of social science, urban planning and design and data science, the programme provides a balance between analytical and practical skills on the one hand, and on the other, domain knowledge and urban theory from social, economic, behavioural, environmental and management sciences.

Programme aims

  • Equip students and urban professionals with cutting-edge analytics and modelling skills
  • Enable good understanding of urban sciences underlying smart city development techniques
  • Support urban policy makers and urban planning/design/surveying practitioners with urban analytics
