This nationally top-ranked urban planning program has a tradition of equipping every student with a firm foundation of planning knowledge and competencies from technical, political, economic, and legal perspectives. Graduates from this program will become lifelong learners and forward-thinking visionaries, who are capable of working with diverse stakeholders, performing sophisticated analysis, and making planning decisions under complex situations.
Faculty members of the MUP Program are nationally and internationally recognized scholars who advance the urban planning field with impactful research. Every year, they contribute millions of dollars of funding to support students through a variety of research centers, laboratories, and institutes at the University. For example, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI), the largest university-based transportation research institute in the world, provides MUP students with numerous employment opportunities.
The program is located in the center of the Texas Urban Triangle, a megaregion encompassing Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio. This is one of the fastest-growing regions in the nation, offering a unique living laboratory to generate innovative planning solutions that can be translated globally.
