Welcome to the Urban and Regional Planning Department

The Urban and Regional Planning Department is one of the departments at the Faculty of Design and Planning Architecture ITS which was first opened on August 30, 2001 based on letter number 2825 / D / T / 2001 issued by the Directorate General of Higher Education. The Urban and Regional Planning Department was established with the aim of becoming an institution of integrity, high competence and innovation in the field of sustainable regional and city planning in order to support regional autonomy and the internationalization of ITS.

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning was established to address various development problems and challenges and foster the excellence of science and technology in the field of PWK oriented to the coastal area and sustainable development. To support all of that, our department has three laboratories including the Computing and Spatial Planning Analysis Laboratory, Regional, Coastal and Environmental Development Laboratory and Urban Development and Design Laboratory.

Based on BAN-PT Decree No.1122 / SK / BAN-PT / Accredited / S / X / 2015 the Regional and City Planning Department is accredited with an “A” rating.
