About the program

The practice of city and regional planning is both science and art. Emerging socio-economic and cultural realities, coupled with technological advancement and a rapidly growing population are making it imperative for physical planners to seek new options for the development of human settlements at all levels. In addition to metropolitan areas and cities, the smaller towns and villages also need due attention of qualified physical planners.

Parul University offers a program which is studio based. The curriculum consists of general and specialized professional planning lecture or seminar courses and a sequence of “studio” courses, which are real-world projects worked on by students in small groups. Studios give students an opportunity to try out techniques of urban planning in a creative manner.

The courses of the program acquaint students with the fundamentals of planning theory and techniques, their applicability in the Indian context and the current development scenario of our country. In addition, emphasis is given to developing skills required for formulating a project, data collection and review, dealing with offices, local people, bureaucrats, compilation of data and its research analysis – both quantitative and qualitative, preparing reports, delivering presentations to various kinds of audiences, understanding legislations, drafting legal documents, logical decision making based on the research study, issues of implementation of proposed plans, ground realities, etc
