About Us

Smart City + Smart People, We Work For A Sustainable Future

Globally increasing environmental awareness and concern, fast urbanization and technological development have together resulted in an urgent need and opportunity to rethink how we could design, construct, and manage our cities in a more efficient, effective and low-cost way.

We have offered the Master of Science (MSc) Programme in Sustainable Environmental Design since fall 2022. Students enrolled in our taught-postgraduate degrees receive training in scientific research and technique skills and conduct independent research under the guidance of a team of renowned supervisors. Candidates are also expected with the educational background in built environment disciplines (architecture, civil engineering, building science and technology, landscape architecture, urban studies, etc.) and/or fields (e.g. environmental science, mathematics, computer science, business, management, and social sciences). our MSc(SED) programme has been designed with a view to combining specialist study and a broad-based training in professional reflection, assessment, and research methods taught by world-class scholars and well-known professionals. Details of our programme can be found under the section of courses.

Sustainable urbanization is increasingly a key to successful city design, construction, development, and management and an important component of design competitions, contractor’s briefs, public policy, and planning. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our programme and hope you’ll join us in learning to promote design innovation and smart technology for creating a better living environment and more sustainable future for our planet and our next generation.

With all good wishes,

Chao Ren
