Course summary Learn to understand dynamic urban processes and create interventions to help make cities competitive, compact, sustainable, inclusive and resilient
Course description How to make − and keep − the world’s modern cities healthy and attractive for the increasing multitudes living and working there? How to ensure that cities are sufficiently compact, sustainable, inclusive, competitive, and resilient? Realising these objectives requires a keen understanding of dynamic urban processes. In gaining such understanding geo-information science and technology constitute an indispensable source of information. Which is the very foundation for ITC’s specialization in Urban Planning and Management. Mind you, this specialization is not only about acquiring geo-information knowledge and skills. On the contrary − you will be constantly challenged to apply what you have learned to current themes such as urban poverty, transport, climate change adaptation, disaster preparedness, and environmental planning.

UPM addresses contemporary themes in UPM, with a dual focus on understanding the nature and dynamics of urban regions and on developing and evaluating interventions using geo-information technology in multi-stakeholder settings.
