The profession of urban and regional planning is concerned with the planning, designing and managing 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 neighborhoods, 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.

The Urban and Regional Planning programme emphasizes technical, strategic and generic skills demanded of planners. Students are instilled with knowledge on principles of planning, creativity in designing and problem-solving, analytical and strategic thinking, as well as competency in research and practice.
