Magister Perencanaan Wilayah dan Kota (MPWK) or Master Programme in Urban and Regional Planning (MURP) was established in 1994. The establishment of MURP started off with the idea that planning is tremendously needed in the country and the nation’s development; the urge to take part in providing planning education that could disseminate planning ability and way of thinking to society that could affect future development’s direction decision; and the importance of human resources and planning knowledge to support development in planning studies.

Until 2017, the name of the degree programme was Magister Perencanaan Kota dan Daerah (Master Programme of City and Regional Planning). The name MURP corresponds with the terminology used in the planning community in Indonesia. The main course languages that are used are Indonesian and English.
