Overview


The Mission (2015-2020) :

The Urban Design program is the academic discipline concerned with interpreting the spatial organization and dynamics of urban areas. The interest is in comparing, evaluating, and inventing new ways to maintain the balance between public and private, the built and natural environment, and local and global perspectives.

The Department of Urban Design and Urban Planning is the home of both professions and offers a prime professional degree in urban planning and a post-professional degree in urban design. Urbanism movements are underpinned as practical action to shape the urban environment in sustainable ways through local community participation and several stakeholders. The participation takes place in the evaluation process of academic performance.
