The Sustainable Design and Development concentration is designed to provide a thorough understanding of the term sustainability and its role in the planning process. The recommended core and elective courses offered within and outside the Department of Urban and Regional Planning (DURP) provide students with an understanding of sustainable development that recognizes its underlying ecological, economic, and social forces. These courses cover techniques and skills for developing land and cities more intelligently, using minimum of nonrenewable energy, producing a minimum of pollution and wastes, and costing a minimum of energy dollars, while increasing the comfort, health, and safety of residents and workers.
