School of Housing, Building & Planning

The School of Housing, Building and Planning, Universiti Sains Malaysia was established in 1972. After more than three decades, the school has made tremendous progress in teaching, research, consultancy and publication. The academic staff currently exceeds sixty, more than half of whom have doctoral degrees in their respective fields. Hbp’s mission is to prepare a platform which can generate structures and society that are eco and environmentally friendly, besides allowing for an academic legacy that will be respected, emulated and sustained. The School of Housing Building and Planning (HBP) wishes to become more recognised internationally. The growth in postgraduate students from abroad, the opportunities created by globalisation and the recognition by gaining validation from international bodies. The School would like its new Centre for Sustainability to grow. The University has already been recognised as a ‘centre of excellence’ in this field. It is currently producing a book covering all aspects of sustainability in the built environment.
