What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning was introduced as a professional programme in line with the requirement of the Board of Town Planners Malaysia. The Urban Planning programme is designed to reflect a different niche area as compared to other universities offering similar program i.e UTM, UiTM, UIA and USM. The niche area for UM’s Urban Planning programme will be related to spatial planning for sustainable development. Therefore, the graduates will be able to rise above the challenging rapid urbanizing world.

The department aspires to be a centre of excellence in urban and regional planning studies and research in the Asia-Pacific region. The region provides a living laboratory where urban and regional issues can be identified, analyzed and examined, and strategies formulated.
