Department of Policy and Planning Sciences

Department of Policy and Planning Sciences (PPS) nurtures novel human resources in science and engineering who will be able to envision and innovate better future of societies. The PPS is a new department which is established in April 2014 as a result of reunification of the three graduate programs in Social Systems Management, Social Systems Engineering, and Business Administration and Public Policy. Education at the PPS strategically focuses on enhancing advanced capabilities to design the society through organic integration of essential social aspects of Assets and Resources, Space and Environment, and Organization and Behavior. Backed up its solid and common goal, the PPS provides two graduate programs:
