The need for urban development has never been absent since the dawn of civilization. Whichever part of the world it may be, the principles and techniques used by urban developers remain indispensable.

Urban development is the science of creating livable and efficient settlements in both urban and rural areas. To such extent, urban developers are involved in all the steps of planning, building and maintaining habitable communities ranging from small farming towns to sprawling megalopolises. Urban developers take into consideration several key factors, such as population size, economic activity, local customs, geography, weather and so much more. While the needs of different towns and cities around the world differ, a well-rounded master's degree program in urban development should incorporate practices and theories that could be applied in any situation and be used to solve the problems at hand.

Urban developers have been involved in the construction of most, if not all, of the world's marvels from both the ancient times and the contemporary era. From the creation of purpose-built capital cities of Canberra, Australia and Brasília, Brazil, to the implementation of innovative ideas to provide potable water and irrigation to rural villages in Africa; urban developers were there.

Individuals with a Master in Urban Development will find themselves in key roles in these undertakings of historic and monumental proportion. As experts in the science of human settlement, contributions of Master in Urban Development holders are sure to leave a lasting legacy and an indelible impression on generations to come."

We live in a world of cities, and our planet is increasingly urban. Cities are the new engines of the global economy, and at the same time, they can be the main actors to face the challenges of climate change and fight against inequality and poverty. If in the past we lived through stages in which the world was organized by empires and then by nation-states, in the future we will live increasingly in a world of cities, in a world of SuperCities. -
