Certificate Course in Spatial Economics


The course has been designed to demonstrate the concepts for spatial decision making in the area of an economic context. The course covers advanced topics of spatial science and its role in economic policy, with a focus on Cost Benefit Analysis (CBA), and on applications with a strong spatial dimension. Students will develop their understanding through series of case studies that cater for urban planning and Environment Management Interest. Students will be engaged in learning involving a range of activities

Some examples of research under the spatial economic focus area are:

  • Transportation effect on landuse
  • The impact of transportation investments on property values
  • Simulation of future urban sprawl and job locations
  • Determination of spatial distribution of noxious facilities and their impact on property values
  • Disease clusters and their relation to socioeconomic and neighborhood spatial characteristics
  • Agglomeration effects of firms and their spatial spillovers
  • Measurement of sprawl, compactness, and walkability
  • Travel and air quality connection
  • Development of computer-based analytical tools to examine spatial interactions among places and activities
  • Heat island effects and their impacts on human behavior
