MUSPP Soiree

Our graduate students in the Master of Science in Urban Science, Policy and Planning (MUSPP) had been hard at work applying the skills and knowledge to a host of pertinent urban challenges we face today and presented their research at the Summer Soirée held on 15 Aug 2023 to the faculty, practitioners and policymakers.

The oral and poster presentations covered topics in Contemporary Urban Challenges, Public Space and Placemaking, Transportation Planning and Policy, Environment, Food and Society, and Pedestrianising the City.

This caps off their one-year journey in MUSPP, which can be described as

“Enriching and fun. MUSPP taught me less conventional ways to think about the wicked problems cities face and how to tackle them. Equipped me with data skills. Widened my network across different disciplines.” Ruth Poh, MUSPP 2023
