About

Want to make urban areas attractive and sustainable? Interested in the design, character, and appearance of urban spaces? Consider the Urban Planning and Design program of Rutgers University.

Overview

About the Program

Urban design is the process by which cities, towns, and villages are shaped, with the goal of making urban areas functional, attractive, and sustainable. It unites landscape architecture, architecture, civil and municipal engineering, and focuses on the design, quality, character and appearance of places. Urban planning is the process concerned with the use of land and design of the urban environment, including air, water, and infrastructure networks. It guides and ensures the orderly development of communities, and concerns itself with research and analysis, strategic thinking, policy recommendations, implementation, and management.

The Urban Planning and Design program of Rutgers University combines these two processes to provide you with a sharper focus on city design, community development, GIS and graphic communication, and planning practice. This program takes into consideration the specific needs of adult and nontraditional students and University College-New Brunswick endorses it as an adult-friendly & working-professional program.
