    • Urban Design and Conservation is concerned with the building of a civilized city in continuity with its past heritage. It is also concerned with public and the community services like safe streets for people, squares for community to gather and place for children or elderly to play rest and get together. Traditional cities of Kathmandu Valley and other countries are a testimony of harmonious townscape with enough community and urban spaces in the form of streets, squares, ponds and temple complexes. The places were also theatres where all kinds of cultural activities sometimes in the form of drama and festival were played. In order to conserve our past heritage and develop our cities in broader perspective, the college launched the Postgraduate Department of Urban Design and Conservation. The faculty staffs including the visiting  faculties  bring together  the existing  knowledge  in the field , do research works  in collaboration  with students  and other relevant  agencies  and propose solutions  to the key  issues of urban design and conservation.


      The main goal of this Master’s degree  Program is to prepare  higher  level  professionals  and academics with  the social development  needs of the time  that is  characterized  by community, culture, ecology and sustainability, and who can also equally  involve at interregional  and international cooperation.
