Department of Urbanism
The growth of cities and urbanization in this
century increasingly adds new dimensions to urban issues. Today the management
of urban developments and suburban areas of the city deserves particular
attention. The number of cities in Iran has quadrupled during 1950 – 2010 and
it is predicted that this trend will be doubled by the year of 2021. The
continuation of this trend is an important future agenda for the country.
That is, urban development, design and planning need particular attention. This
issue also emphasizes the demand for training of knowledgeable and competent
human resources. Therefore, studying in the Bachelor’s program of Urbanism prepares a suitable ground for the management and preservation as
well as exploitation of the available and potential environmental resources.
The syllabus offered for the Bachelor of Urbanism covers basic courses in the first three semesters and continues (from semester 4) with theoretical, practical and analytical courses in urbanism contexts.
This Program mainly focus on: Urbanization, Urban Development, Urban Design and Planning, Urban Management.
