Programme profile

What effect will climate change have on our future cities and rural areas? How can you develop sustainable strategies and designs for new and existing urban systems? How do you deal with a complex built environment and related planning processes?

Planners are asked to translate spatial transformation such as urban growth and decline into new opportunities to enhance quality of life. This programme revolves around physical and institutional design. The course units you follow are related to spatial planning and design, water management, infrastructure and environmental planning, spatial computer programs, complex decision-making and academic research. You also go on excursions to see spatial projects in practice. There will be an opportunity to develop your personal interests via elective course units. You complete your degree with a research project.

High-achieving students can take part in a more sophisticated programme at the Honours College, which is more in-depth and has a wider range of topics.
