Generic Cityscape view


The future of cities worldwide is being shaped by challenges of energy supply, health care, housing, social inequality and transport. These challenges are dynamic. They demand new methods of thinking, beyond traditional academic disciplines and divisions. At The University of Manchester, that’s something we’re good at.
