Top Masters Programs in Urban and Regional Planning in Asia 2017. M.Des. in Public Space Design Students displaying their work from a public space design course, which explored Urban Planning through mapping. Course: Making Places Public places are sometimes the sites for conflict of race, class, gender and economics. But they are also places of synergy and the collective where individuals and communities can interact with each other. In the Indian context where pastoral communities consider grasslands as common land that everyone’s cattle can graze in or streets that become make shift markets where street vendors have traditionally congregated to sell their produce. With emerging technologies such as the Internet of things and cloud computing we will increasingly connect everyone and everything in a seamless network, further blurring the boundaries between public and private. All of this adds varied dimensions to the word “public”. It is critical to understand this changing dynamic of public space. The program fosters empathetic and reflective designers capable of engaging with theory and public policy. It develops the ability to deal with complexity and navigate the layers of physical and non- physical contexts that define public spaces. The aim is to use this holistic understanding for the design of dynamic, inclusive and sensitive interventions. Disciplines The program is informed by the following learning disciplines: Spatial Design Architecture Landscape Design Sociology Urban Studies and Design Environmental Graphics Sustainability studies Policy Studies and Environmental Law Cultural studies Heritage Conservation Urban and Regional Planning Ecology and Environment Research and Collaboration UNESCO Chair Srishti Films Design+Environment+Law Laboratory (DEL Laboratory) Design EARTH Learning Network on Sustainability (LeNS)-India Student interacting with Public Space Design Facilitator Key Values Postgraduates in Public space design are evolutionists at heart and imbibe these core values: Empathetic – As public space designers we value the “other” over the “self”. While we brings the self into the design it is informed through putting ourselves in other’s shoes and by having empathy towards all. Inclusive – We ensure that the spaces we design are inclusive and accessible to all. Sustainable – We strive for sustainable place making that balances ecological, community and economic concerns. Adaptable – We designs for change. We are adaptable to the ever-changing contexts and ensure our designs are resilient to changing social and environmental needs and issues. Course Structure Studios encourage active, contextual learning where students develop core disciplinary skills and knowledge. Studios facilitate collaborative and creative design solutions to complex, open-ended problems Workshops provide intense learning experiences in making and doing, across the different disciplines.

Transportation Planning – This area offers studios on preparing comprehensive traffic and transportation plans at city level and transport project development along with courses on transportation and land use planning, transportation modelling and design of transportation systems. The first semester is the ‘foundation’ that prepares students to grapple with the idea of ‘urban’ and prepare a plan for development of a municipal ward. They are exposed to the theories of economic and social development and history of urban transformation. They learn the skills of quantitative, qualitative and spatial methods. The foundation semester gives them the breadth of the discipline. The second and third semesters are for delivering in-depth knowledge in one of the available specializations. In the second semester the students prepare plan of a city or a town, with emphasis on any one of the available specializations. Simultaneously, they learn skills and gain knowledge relevant to preparing the city level plans. In the third semester they prepare a plan for a region. An alternative option in the third semester is to prepare a detailed project report or area plan, which includes financial and governance proposals. During the fourth semester students are required to complete a capstone project – an individual but guided planning, research, grant writing or policy analysis project. Twice, in breaks between semesters, students are required to sign up for University’s Summer School and Winter School programs, which could include study tours to cities in India and abroad. To enable students to pursue individual interests only three quarters of the total academic workload is mandated to obtain the degree they have registered for. To complete the remaining one quarter, students choose courses from the many available electives. Admission and Prerequisites Applicants for the Masters of Planning program in the general category should have a minimum of 55% aggregate marks and those in the SC/ST/OBC categories should have a minimum of 50% aggregate marks in below mentioned degree programs from a recognised University / Institution: Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in Architecture/ Environmental Engineering/ Civil Engineering/ Planning/ Law Or Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Geography/ Economics/ Sociology/ Environmental Science/ Social Work /Development Studies/ Policy Studies/ Political Science International Entry Requirements CEPT’s guiding principal for International Admissions is to seek equivalence between International standards achieved and those of Indian home students.

This Master of Architecture will enable students to engage with current public expectations of architectural practice and trends, particularly towards sustainable designs. [+]

Top Masters Programs in Urban and Regional Planning in Asia 2017. Architecture is the art of designing the human built environment. Buildings are one of the most visible productions of man, and vary greatly in design, function, and construction implementation across the globe. The vision that Architects conceive is projected onto the society and the built environment in which they practice. These conceptions and ideas will inadvertently have profound effects on the built environment, and consequently on the people who interact with that environment. Architecture is, therefore, an art form, the learning of which requires professional practice, personal artistic development and technical knowledge of building. The constant dialogue between society and the architect is what produces architecture - as a product and as well as a discipline. The School of Architecture and Built Environment understands that all those who study and work in the field of architecture need a framework for aesthetics and a functional appreciation for buildings and context. This can only be achieved via a thorough grounding in the design process, building sciences and technologies allied to an understanding of the important social, cultural, artistic, and historical factors which influence architecture. This philosophy underpins every teaching and research programme delivered at the School. The Master of Architecture programme is a 2-year full time professional degree. It is designed for individuals who have already successfully completed a 3-year undergraduate professional architectural programme. This Master of Architecture will enable students to engage with current public expectations of architectural practice and trends, particularly towards sustainable designs. With this programme, UCSI University’s School of Architecture and Built Environment is doing its part to boost the number of professional architects in Malaysia, which is in line with the country’s aim to achieve developed nation status by 2020.
