Master in Urban and Regional Planning

General

Program Description

Overview

The 18-month Master’s in Urban and Regional Planning is designed for students to acquire the fundamental knowledge and skills required for jobs as a professional planner.

A habitable modern city is only successful if its different components are efficiently integrated and the residents and citizens benefit economically and socially leading to an improved quality of life. Regional and Urban Planners strategically link the complex components of cities and regions including budget, legalities, availability of infrastructure and land and visual appeal. Through intelligent planning, they create plans to build and organically grow dynamic and functional public spaces for small and large populations. Planners work alongside engineers, architects, law enforcement agencies, environmental consultants, legal advisors to create vibrant and sustainable cities and regions.
