Department of Urban Convergence Engineering
- Department and course : Engineering department (The doctor's course)
The Department of Urban Construction Engineering aims to implement Metaverse's spatial information-based smart future city. To this end, it is a field of study that studies humanities and social studies such as public law, computer statistics, sociology, geography, and economics as well as urban engineering research fields (urban spatial information, GIS, land use, urban design studio, urban transportation, urban disaster safety, resilience, housing policy, and AI urban engineering). Researchers in this department aim to build a future city through in-depth research on detailed majors as well as analytical research from the perspective of convergence studies to solve various and complex urban problems.
In order to realize the future of the city and the "smart city" project, the current urban problems and crises must be overcome, and professional researchers in the field of urban engineering with various capabilities are needed. The convergence research course of this department aims to foster talent to solve various urban problems using artificial intelligence, big data, and IoT-related technologies in urban planning, urban design, urban space composition and safety management, housing policy, and urban resilience. As a strategy for this, it creates new knowledge information and values in future cities through specialized in-depth research in various fields such as digital twinning, differentiated systems and policy and content development that reflect the needs of residents, and public-private cooperation.
