Our department provides professional training and knowledge needed to tackle countless challenges posed by climate change and social transformations. We have a number of highly-qualified academics and practitioners from public and private sectors, who are eager to share their knowledge and experience with you. Our teaching strategy is guided by three core principles:
Practice-led Teaching: We recognize the importance of developing practical skills applicable to the real world situations. Hence, we are focused on increasing the number of practice-led learning opportunities in our department. In addition to various guest speakers, which are regularly invited to our department, our program also features field work, case study research, local community engagement projects, practicums and summer internships.
Technical Capability: Our department is equipped with advanced technical facilities. We introduce our students to Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and teach them how to use different software tools in regional disaster and rescue planning, disaster mitigation, disaster prevention and response system management, urban planning, and landscape architecture.
Local & International Activities: We care deeply about our community. We seek to develop a closer relationship with our local communities to help them to overcome their economic, environmental and social vulnerabilities. We also have a strong relationship with our sister schools abroad, and offer exciting international student exchange opportunities with our partners in the United Kingdom, Japan, South Korea, and China.
