Program for Capacity Building in
Global Water-Environmental Engineering





Urban Engineering is the wisdom used to present a prescription to alleviate conflicts of interests between humans and nature or among humans, by changing human locations and constructive activities and numerous economic and social activities carried out by managing the physical urban space directly and indirectly via infrastructure improvement and system design. Therefore, it is necessary to have the capability to analyze what is happening and how it happens, to view the citizen in an understandable way and to think about the prescription together with the citizen and to compose it. Let us contemplate human behavior, while applying Mathematics and Information Technology.
