Based on the UN data in year 2014, the world ‘urban’ population is 3.2 billion which is more than half of the ‘world’s population. The urban population is expected to increase to 5.0 billion by the year 2050. Not only the people but also capital and information are being concentrated on urban areas, especially in developing countries. As a result, it will become more serious 1) to keep quality of air/water 2) to satisfy efficient energy/resource consumption and 3) to realize resilient cities, without necessary infrastructure under the uncontrolled urban sprawls.
To solve these situations, world cities seriously need excellent leaders/specialists to solve the above urban issues utilizing ICT(Information and Communication Technologies). Fortunately, our KIC graduate school is ready to provide you with outstanding educations and experiences both in urban planning utilizing ICT.
Let’s take a new step together towards an excellent leader/specialist to cope with the expectations of the world's citizens.
