Programme on Cities and Urban Science

Programme Lead: Prof Chan Heng Chee (LKYCIC, SUTD)

Urban science, resting on the proliferation of urban data and new ways to analyse such data, is an emerging approach to understand the function and development of cities. Centred at the LKYCIC, Cities and Urban Science is a university-wide initiative and multi-disciplinary research programme that explores the potential of ‘big data’ in an urban context. Current research examines the role of citizens in urbanisation processes, liveability, mobility and compact living.
