Urban and regional planning activities have been in constant development. They are increasingly becoming more complex, covering the spatial or physical aspects of a sustainable built environment and the multitude of non-physical aspects involving various disciplines and stakeholders. Urban and regional planners are required to be knowledgeable about the fields and have professional skills in the allocation and spatial distribution of land uses and functions needed by society, devising and administering land zoning schemes, resolving conflicts between competing demands for land development, ensuring that housing and public facilities are well located and conveniently placed, and helping to decide which developments should proceed and which buildings or spaces should be preserved.

The undergraduate program in Urban and Regional Planning at ITB was established in September 1959, with initial help from experts from Harvard University under the auspices of the United Nations Technical Assistance Bureau (UNTAB). The Urban and Regional Planning Program at ITB is designed to become the critical center for the theory and practice of urban and regional planning and policy in Indonesia. The program provides:

  • a high-quality planning education,
  • scholarly planning research, and
  • the best planning service for the public.

The program educates students who wish to combine social concerns and analytical skills in dealing with the issues of urban and regional planning and policy in Indonesia.

The undergraduate program is designed to equip graduates with the basic knowledge, skill, and attitude required as planners, emphasizing their ability to think in rational, analytical, comprehensive, and strategic ways to develop the best alternative solutions to the problem, which are technically justifiable, socially acceptable and morally responsible. 

To maintain its standard of quality and compatibility at national as well as international levels. The undergraduate curriculum is designed concerning the levels of competence set up by:

  1. Planning Accreditation Board (PAB), an accrediting body for planning schools recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) in the United States
  2. Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP)

Specifically, the program is accredited by Akkreditierungsagentur für Studiengänge der Ingenieurwissenschaften, der Informatik, der Naturwissenschaften (ASIIN – German) and BAN PT-Indonesia (Excellent).

Career Prospect
Graduates of the program are expected to be professional, practicing planners and/or development practitioners with a broad knowledge of urban and regional planning issues. Graduates with a Sarjana Teknik Degree in Urban and Regional Planning are qualified to work as planners for local and regional councils, government agencies, planning consultancies, property developers, research institutes, and non-government organizations.
