Urban and regional planning research has been established in the Faculty since the late 1940s, covering a wide range of subject areas, including international studies with a focus on South-East Asia and the Pacific; metropolitan planning; housing studies; regional policy and many other fields of policy and development. A recently established urban design program provides additional opportunities to conduct research into the design dimensions of urban form. Besides providing individual study areas for research, the Faculty is home to an extensive library collection and the Planning Research Centre, which is an independent university foundation.
