Department of Urban & Regional Planning
Message from Head
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome in the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (DURP), Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET). The Department was started its journey in 2009 to offer Bachelor degree in Urban and Regional Planning.
The bachelor program in Urban and Regional Planning embraces the interdisciplinary nature of a career. It is comprised of some specialized areas: Urban Planning, Regional Planning, Transportation Planning, Housing Development, Geographic Information System etc. Here we introduced some new courses on planning like Hilly Region Planning & Development, Introduction to Water Resources and Drainage Planning etc. The department provides one of the best programs in Bangladesh and a balanced curriculum that exposes students to the rich theoretical perspectives used by planners and developers, and teaches them to learn practical approach.
The graduates of department can pursue careers in public planning agencies; in private consulting firms; or in university-based teaching and research positions. The graduates from this department will be well prepared to take leadership roles and serve as visible role models as researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in the public, private, and non-governmental sectors.
