Urban Resilience and Renewal from University of Canterbury will focus on:
- the urban renewal of Ōtautahi Christchurch, a city that faces many of these issues as it recovers from the 2010/11 earthquakes
- how communities respond to challenges that cities are facing today
- community engagement with students working with community groups and local government, within compulsory courses and through their chosen research project.
The Master of Urban Resilience and Renewal will provide students with the skills, knowledge, and competencies to be employed professionally in any organisation involved in urban resilience and renewal. It will enable graduates to seek out careers in areas such as environmental management, disaster risk reduction, hazard management, environmental consulting, as well as local and regional government.
