Introduction to the Programme

The profession of urban and regional planning concerns with the planning, designing and managing of the built environment. It is interdisciplinary in nature and integrates both the art and science of creating a better quality of life in a sustainable environment. At the local level the profession deals with the planning and designing of neighbourhoods, towns and cities. In contrast, the profession focuses on strategic and structural planning at the regional and national level. The profession seeks to balance between society and environment by managing developments through policies, strategies and plans.
