FROM THE HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT,

 

Department of City and Regional Planning has been structured first as a graduate program in 1973 and re-organized as the first full department in “planning” among other Istanbul universities. The department has its strong planning education background in both planning theory and practice through worldwide scientific knowledge.
