Polytechnics that Offer ND/HND Urban and Regional Planning With their Entry Requirements

One of the major features of contemporary urbanization in Nigeria, as elsewhere in the developing world, is the incidence of Urban sprawl and other forms of disorderly development. 

The city has continued to expand rather rapidly from the core into the surrounding countryside. Modern transportation and communication have encouraged the rapid spread of low-density development, so that sharp boundaries between city and countryside may not exist within the foreseeable future. 

With more and more rural dwellers migrating to the urban centers in search of jobs that are in very short supply, the overall pressure on urban land and social amenities and services is on the increase. 

The need to create more liveable and balanced environment, which will be sustainable in both urban and rural areas where people can work, relax, feel safe and secure calls for serious planning efforts at the national, state and local levels. These efforts cannot crystallize into meaningful results without adequately trained manpower of various cadre, technicians, technologies and professionals. 

The ND and HND programmes in Urban and Regional Planning (URP) are conceived as part of the effort to produce the technician and technologist categories of the nation’s manpower requirements for solving the problems identified above.

The programme is designed to produce technician manpower in urban and regional planning, capable of assisting professional planners in their duties. Specifically, the products of the programme should be able to: 

  • (a) understand the nature and purpose of physical planning at the national, regional, state and local levels; 
  • (b) understand the form and structure of urban and rural settlements for sustainable development 
  • ( c) understand the nature and scale of urban and rural problems and the planning approaches to their solutions; 
  • (d) appreciate the elementary social, economic and legal basis of planning; 
  • (e) demonstrate a working ability in verbal, written and design communication.
