BE INSPIRED

“More and more people would live in cities both in the contemporary and future world, which leads to a series of significant research topics. Complicated urban issues, abundant and various city-data, as well as dramatically developing research tools, are all calling for cross-disciplinary urban studies, which is strongly advocated by Urban Governance and Design Thrust. That is the reason why I chose UGOD to pursue my doctoral study. It would be romantic and fascinating to start an academic career with a rapidly growing academic institution.”
