Introduction

Established in 1972 by the late Tan Sri Professor Hamzah Sendut, the Vice Chancellor of USM, the nation’s second oldest university, the School of Housing, Building and Planning is one of the few building construction-based educational centres in Malaysia that is multi-disciplinary in nature. The School was modeled along the lines of what Professor Koenigsberger and Markus had envisioned to meet the needs of a developing country.

Even though over the years it has evolved to cater to a more widely accepted precept that clearly demarcates professional boundaries, the inter-disciplinary tradition is still maintained in all its undergraduate courses and also postgraduate programmes in six disciplinary namely Construction Management, Architecture, Interior Design, Building Technology, Urban & Regional Planning and Quantity Surveying.
