Urban planners create spaces that provide a high quality of life and range of opportunities for all. They put ideas into practice by using their observational and analytical capabilities and their interest in the community.

Our urban planning programs provide you with the knowledge central to urban and regional planning including sustainable development, spatial planning, urban design, environmental management, land economics, property markets, regional planning, social and community planning, and community consultation.

You may choose electives in the areas of environmental, or social and community planning that will help you define your future career in the corresponding international development organisations, branches of state government and private sector consultancies.
