In order to produce high quality town planners who are able to practically and holistically contribute to more sustainable development of the country, apart from having a forward-looking, innovative, world class Bachelor of Urban and Regional Planning (B.URP) curriculum, it is highly essential that the B.URP program be designed “for the real world”; and “planning for the real world” begins in the early year of the planning education.
With this in view, the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (JPBW), Faculty of Built Environment (FAB), Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, Johor Bahru (UTMJB) organised the second First Year Experience (FYE-II) program that was integrated with the field trip of the First Year, Second Semester’s Site Planning and Layout Studio (SBEP 1125) on 16-18 April 2015.
