It is the sole Engineering degree in Territorial Planning accredited by the Engineering Title Committee (CTI), and has been reassessed recently and accredited by the CTI for the next 6 years (Sept 2014 - Sept 2020). The EPU-DAE is also a recognised by the French speaking association of Schools in Urban and Regional Planning (APERAU), and is actually one of the founding members of both APERAU and AESOP. The EPU-DAE programme aims to help students acquire technical and practical knowledge and competences for addressing contemporary planning challenges faced by cities and urban regions in the context of climate change and the need for designing and implementing workable models and approaches toward more sustainable urban and regional development dynamics.
