Course content

The aim of the MRes in Urban Sustainability and Resilience is to equip students from a variety of backgrounds with the research skills, knowledge and understanding required to tackle current and future challenges faced by cities globally, including increasing the resilience of our urban systems, and the infrastructure that supports them, to shocks arising from natural, economic and technological disasters.

The Centre for Urban Sustainability and Resilience (USAR) is based within UCL Civil, Environmental and Geomatic Engineering (CEGE) - a revolutionary department within UCL, distinguished by its radical thinking and interdisciplinary approach to research and teaching.

Students work in a dedicated research centre that provides a critical mass of problem solvers and intellectual resources and offers excellent networking opportunities. USAR is an energetic and exciting environment which draws on staff from across the university.

The programme combines innovative, transformative investigation with practical application to respond to the challenge of making the world a better place.
