The Urban Analytics programme at The University of Hong Kong is offered as both a one-year full-time and two-year part-time programme. The evolving technological basis of cities is reshaping our urban life and allowing us to understand, plan, manage and optimise cities in completely new ways.


Programme Aims

The Urban Analytics programme at The University of Hong Kong is therefore designed to train and upskill students and professionals able to apply novel urban science and analytics in planning and managing the development of cities. Aiming to bridge the disciplines of social science, urban planning and design and data science, the programme provides a balance between analytical and practical skills on the one hand, and on the other, domain knowledge and urban theory from social, economic, behavioural, environmental and management sciences.

  • Equip urban professionals with cutting-edge analytics and modelling skills
  • Develop good understanding of urban sciences underlying smart city development techniques
  • Support urban policy makers and planning/design/surveying practitioners with urban analytics

Programme Structure

  • The Master of Science in Urban Analytics degree requires 69 credits within one year of full-time study and two years of part-time study.
  • The curriculum of the programme consists of seven urban analytics courses (6 credits each), two urban theory courses (6 credits each; two from an approved list of courses), and a dissertation/capstone project (15 credits).
