Brief History
The Department of Land Economics (DLE) has a glorious history which traces back 
to as early as 1932; originally, DLE offered only the bachelor degree and served as a pioneer 
in the land economics in the country. Decades later, in order to train for more advanced 
professionals and potential researchers, among others, DLE advanced with the establishment 
of the
 master's program in 1968 and the doctoral program 1981. Along with the development 
and growth of the department, in 1993, two primary specialties of the department, i.e., land
and land resources planning (focused on urban and regional planning) officially
two independent programs under the umbrella of land economics for the undergraduate 
education. In 2000, a third program – 
geometics, was established to add one more major to the 
department. In 2002, with the help of the professionals' Master's Program of Land Economics
, the education subjects of the department were further extended to working
