MASTER OF SCIENCE

IN URBAN DESIGN

CHINESE UNIVERSITY OF

HONG KONG

New programme 2012

Urban design plays a key role in creating livable, sustainable and socially just cities. As one of

the most dynamic laboratories for contemporary urbanism, Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta

offer a wide range of challenges and opportunities.The new M.Sc. in Urban Design programme

prepares committed designers to engage with these challenges.Through a combination of design

studios and focused modules, students develop design skills while integrating new knowledge

about essential areas for urban design, such as community participation, ecosystems and transport

networks. Courses in urban history and environmental economy provide a deeper understanding

of the forces of urbanism and the impact of urban design on the environment and society.

The new M.Sc. in Urban Design programme is offered by the School of Architecture at the Chinese

University of Hong Kong. It draws from the school’s 20 years experience in teaching and research

and will use its well established international network. The tuition fee of the self-financed programme

is $115,000 for 2012-13 (12 months). The places for the programme are given based on

the academic and professional merit of the application. Applicants should have an undergraduate

or Master’s degree in Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban Planning or other related areas

as well as relevant practical experience.
