  • About School of Design and Environment, Department of Real Estate

    The Department of Real Estate (NUS DRE) traces its origins to 1969 when degree courses in both building and estate management were first offered in the then Department of Building and Estate Management. This was subsequently changed to the School of Building and Real Estate. In June 2000, the Faculty changed its name to the School of Design and Environment. As a result of this change, Building and Real Estate were established as separate departments.

    Contributing to Singapore and Beyond

    Globally, NUS DRE boasts the largest real estate department across universities. The Department seeks to advance holistic knowledge of real estate and urban development for sustainable and inclusive urbanization in Asia through innovation research and teaching. The Department has an excellent research track record and connection with global research communities in real estate, urban economies and city planning.

Our faculty come from elite universities around the world and provide a wealth of cutting-edge academic research and field expertise to our students.
