School of Architecture, Planning and Policy Development offers a number of undergraduate and postgraduate degree programs relevant to the creation of new knowledge as well as to the national development challenges and demands of the society. The academic programs include:

  • Urban and Regional Planning

Urban and regional planning activities have been in constant development and are increasingly becoming more complex, covering not only the spatial or physical aspects of the sustainable built environment, but also multitude of non physical aspects involving various disciplines and stakeholders. Urban and regional planners are required to be knowledgeable about the field and have professional skill pertaining to the allocation and spatial distribution of land uses and functions required by society, devising and administering land zoning schemes, resolving conflicts between competing demands for land development, ensuring that housing and public facilities are well located and conveniently placed, and helping to decide which developments should proceed and which buildings or spaces should be preserved.
The undergraduate program in Urban and Regional Planning at ITB was firstly established in September 1959, with initial help of experts from Harvard University under the auspices of the United Nations Technical Assistance Bureau (UNTAB). To keep up with the increasing need for specialized professional expertise, a master program in Urban and Regional Planning was established at ITB in August 1982 with technical assistance from the Development Planning Unit, University College London dan the Department of Public Works. The establishment of a doctoral program in Urban and Regional Planning at ITB was then followed in1986.
The Urban and Regional Planning Program at ITB is designed to become the key center for the theory and practice of urban and regional planning and policy in Indonesia. The program provides high quality of planning education, scholarly planning research, and best planning service for the public. The program educates students who wish to combine social concerns and analytical skills in dealing with the issues of regional and city planning and policy in Indonesia.
Graduates of the program are expected to be professional, practicing planners and/or development practitioners who have wide knowledge in urban and regional planning issues. Their levels of competence are stratified according to the degree awarded:

  1. Sarjana or Undergraduate degree program: Basic competence for urban and regional planning activities with simple level of interaction and generic behaviour.

Urban Design

Urban design as a distinct field began to gain attention in Indonesia at the end of 1980s and has expanded considerably since that time, in response to the needs for better urban design knowledge and skills for design professionals in general, and for government officers at local, regional and national planning boards in particular, to support the implementation of national policy on regional autonomy. More and more planning board officers nationwide are required to prepare and evaluate urban design policies, strategies, concepts, guidelines, master plans and development programs, as well as be involved in the detailed design and management of urban spaces, which demands better appreciation of urban structure and context.
Urban design approaches, concepts and principles learned from developed countries are not fully implementable to solve multitude problems that challenge Indonesia at present and in the future, due to great differences in socio cultural, political, economics and natural physical contexts. Indonesia ultimately needs to develop its own urban design and development approaches, concepts and principles, which are based on and accordingly relevant to its own contexts and experiences.
The initiative to establish a master degree program in Urban Design at ITB begin in 2001, supported by a number of dedicated academic staff from Department of Urban and Regional Planning and Department of Architecture, who work shoulder to shoulder to incubate the program. It was not until February 2007 that the initiative could be fully realized.

Tourism Planning

The challenge to prepare a master plan for national tourism development in the early 1990s has become a milestone for ITB to take tourism as a serious subject matter. Tourism at that time was the country’s strategic foreign exchange earner, due to the decrease of national income from oil and gas. A strong political will to further develop tourism industries has encouraged the undertaking of tourism studies and increased the demand for tourism planning. Accordingly, courses on tourism were offered as electives at the Regional and Urban Planning Department ITB. The subject gradually attracted interest of students from planning department as well as from other fields of study.
ITB is not the first higher education to undertake a  graduate program on tourism, which mostly started in late 1990s in the management study program. Undergraduate education on tourism in Indonesia is predominantly vocational in nature, serving the increasing need of the growing industry. In response to the aggravating issues in tourism development, resulted from accelerated growth of the industry with all its consequences, ITB in 1993 established a Center for Tourism Research to stimulate interest among students and faculty members. The Center is aimed at accumulating knowledge and experiences through researches as well as lessons learned from cooperation with many local governments and central government. With the accumulation of knowledge during that period, course materials on tourism can be enriched and expanded. In 2006, a master program on tourism was initiated as an attachment to master of Development Studies program. After a thoughtful consideration and preparation, a full-fledge master program on Tourism Planning was then established in 2010.

MASTER PROGRAM
Commencement semester  : August
Duration                                 : Regular Program: 3 semesters full-time
Credit units                            : 36 minimum
