With access to a network of area and regional employers, policymakers, and analysts, graduates of MET’s city planning and urban affairs programs are uniquely positioned to make an impact in the field. No matter the area of focus, all of our programs are built on three foundational principles—that urban planning education and practice should 1) advance equity and social justice; 2) emphasize sustainable solutions; and 3) utilize technology to facilitate human-centered communities.
