The courses in UPDM will prepare you with professionalism to cope with global environmental change and associated urban hazards by providing interdisciplinary education resources from academia, governments and private sector. Three principal characteristics are at the core of our education:
Learning-by-doing: Our courses highlight the importance of practice and knowledge applicability in the real world. Hence, we provide learning opportunities not only from practitioners, but also from activities such as field work, case study, local community engagement, and summer internships through different modules.
Technical Capability: We emphasize the capability to use updated skills/programs for assist in spatial survey, analysis, and management, including drone and geographic information system (GIS).
Local & International Activities: We care about our local social responsibility and have developed close connection with local communities to reduce their environmental and societal vulnerability from potential disasters. In the mean time, we also offer international learning opportunities from our sister schools and otherwise, in countries such as UK, Japan, South Korea, and China.
