Urban Design at National University of Singapore has drawn on the contemporary successful urban experience of Singapore as a living laboratory, as well as on its role in helping to transform the region, to prepare the most innovative and creative thinking urban designers to envision strategic futures and design sustainable and resilient great urban places.

Key facts:

Cities worldwide are growing at  challenging and unprecedented speeds with Asia leading the rapid urbanization process that will take the region to transform its urban environments, populations and landscapes into the highest dense cities in our planet. This scenario requests the urgent need for urban design professionals, specially architects, planners, engineers and landscape architects, to tackle the challenges affecting cities such as changes in the living and working patterns, aging populations, new mobility trends, changes in the forms of industrial production and consumption, urban informality, population growth and migration, or the effects of climate change. These and other critical issues are affecting our urban and physical spaces, and in the coming years professionals trained in urban design will have a key role in shaping the future of our cities through innovative ideas and approaches.
