INTRODUCTION

What can be done to improve the prosperity of our businesses and economy? How can we secure a better future for the poor and future generations? What can we do to conserve biodiversity and our natural heritage?

These are some of the challenging questions that planners seek to answer. If you are interested in an exciting career that is focused on improving the quality of life in our neighbourhoods, communities, and society, then a
Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning is a great choice. 

Urban and Regional Planning is a creative inter-disciplinary process that deals with both the natural and human dimensions of the world around us. It is concerned with the diversity, productivity, and vitality of our economy, communities, and natural systems, with a focus on people and the places where they live, work, and play. 

Planners do design for the future by seeking to improve human prospects in the face of rapid economic, environmental, political, and technological changes. They help to make sense of the changing world and design solutions that are innovative, feasible, just, democratic, and sustainable. Planners reconcile conflicting interests by finding common ground to help people create innovative options, and then implement agreed upon solutions. 

Planners design cities and urban areas that are innovative and exciting, full of character, and have aesthetic appeal. They also design efficient transport systems, create neighbourhoods that are safe and affordable, design productive rural areas with vibrant communities, and help create natural areas that conserve indigenous flora and fauna, providing opportunities for recreation, contemplations and solitude.
