Urban Development and Engineering

 Introduction

College of Urban Development and Engineering had been established in October 1970 by the name of: I’Ecole Technique Superieure Des Municipalities with Agreement between France and Imperial Government of Ethiopia). The aim was to provide students with scientific knowledge which can enable them to solve technical problems they encounter when employed in the municipalities   including Surveying, Hydraulics, Topography and Higher technicians in building and urban planning. It had been formally merged with Ethiopian Civil Service University  in 1987/95.

Several academic disiplines may define the city in diffrent ways, but they all agree on one thing: the city is a revolutionary human achievement. As a student in our Urban development and Enginerring(CUDE) programs, they will use diffrent tools provided by multiple disciplines to understand cities and the role they play in the development and functioning of civilization.

Urban planners, engineers, Urban Land Development and Management, geographers, architects, Urban Infrastructure and Transport Management, Housing and real Estate Property Management professionals and environmental mangment scientists all study the city from their specific theoretical and philosophical perspectives. The Urban development and enginerring Program at ECSU is based on a recognition of this multidisciplinarity, and it aims to provide students with a multitude of lenses through which to observe, interpret and understand urban life.

The Programs in CUDE is suited for those students who wish to study cities using several disciplinary approaches. It is also of interest to those students who wish to become involved in urban issues in Ethiopia and African Regions. The Program offers differnt analitical tools as part of its experiential learning program. Class sizes are typically approprate and interaction with other students and professors is enriched.
