The Urban Systems Engineering MSc program, offered by the Faculty of Engineering, aims to train Urban Systems Engineers who are equipped to contribute effectively to urban planning, settlement architecture, and technical authorities. These engineers will play crucial roles in assisting administrations, communal maintenance services, and the protection of the urban built environment of local governments.
This comprehensive program provides a strong foundation in various disciplines relevant to urban systems engineering. Students will engage with subjects such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS), urban sociology, urban transportation planning, and urban environmental protection. Additionally, they will delve into areas including regional planning, urban architecture, real estate development and management, and ecological planning.
The curriculum places a significant emphasis on practical application, with approximately 52% of the program dedicated to practice-based learning. This includes opportunities for internships and field practices, allowing students to gain hands-on experience in urban planning and engineering settings.
Graduates of this program will be well-prepared to implement urban development concepts and programs, formulate plans, and harmonize the development of settlements, groups of settlements, and areas. They will also possess the skills necessary to conduct scientific research in the professional field of urban systems engineering.
The program accepts applications for both September and February intakes, providing flexibility for prospective students. The tuition fee for this program is 8,000 USD per year, with additional one-time fees including a 150 USD application fee and a 350 USD entrance procedure fee.
