Master of Engineering in Cities Engineering and Management

Cities are the economic engines of the world.

Over 50 per cent of the world’s population lives in cities; by 2050 66 per cent of the world's population is projected to be living in a major urban hub. The health and wealth of nations is dependent on how well these cities function.

Global urbanization, climate change, natural resources and sustainability are all factors urban centres must take into account while managing infrastructure and providing services for citizens.

Highly-skilled professionals, armed with both technical expertise and a fundamental understanding of the cross-disciplinary issues cities must tackle to ensure the well-being of their inhabitants and economies.
