A 10-member-strong team from The Singapore-ETH Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability (SEC), led by SEC Director Prof. Dr. Peter Edwards, paid a courtesy visit to the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (JPBW), Faculty of Built Environment (FAB), UTM. On campus to receive the SEC delegation were FAB Deputy Dean (Academic), Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mohamad Rafee Majid and JPBW Head of Department, Assoc. Prof. Datin Dr. Norsiah Abdul Aziz.
The courtesy visit was a result of a 3-year collaboration (2011-2014) between the SEC’s Future Cities Laboratory (FCL) Program’s Architecture and Territorial Planning Project, led by Assistant Prof. Dr. Milica Topalovic, and UTM’s JPBW, led by Prof. Dr. Ho Chin Siong and Mr. Chau Loon Wai. As a result of the fruitful collaboration, SEC and JPBW sought to formalise and strengthen the academic relationship between the two institutions.
