This class was tough.
took this module as part of my core modules for Real Estate during my Year 1 Semester 1. This module covers many important concepts, including the background to urbanisation and types of urban forms; land tenure, land resources and policies; the real estate development process and the role of professionals as well as Singaporean public agencies involved in it; and the life cycle assessment of buildings along with other related topics.
This is an introductory module providing students with theories, concepts and components of the urban built environment. Discussions will cover the urbanisation process, development of urban forms and structures, land policy and development constraints, national development and the land use planning process, the role of government in the planning process, the property development process, and the roles and functions of parties involved as well as real estate in urban development.

Advice for students:
The lecturer, Dr Wong, is very open and receptive to questions and consultations. Assessment modes: 1 group project, 1 final exam Final exam format: Closed book, essay questions. Note that it may not be directly pertaining to what is covered in lectures, and as such both memorisation of lecture materials & a good knowledge of additional information is required to do well.
