Planning, development and management of human settlements is becoming an increasingly important task. As a result of technological advancements and integration of societies and economies of the world, planning of cities and regions has become very complex. Professionally trained town and country planners are therefore needed in order to evolve new options for the development and management of human settlements. This applies not only to the planning of metropolitan areas but also to small cities, towns and villages. Being the pioneering institution in these fields, the School of Planning and Architecture took lead in instituting the first ever Bachelor of Planning programme in the country in 1989. Students admitted to this four years intensive training programme are provided with broad knowledge and skills necessary to plan for integrated and balanced development of human settlements and areas of varying sizes.
