Urban planning is about how we organise, regulate and manage our cities, neighbourhoods and buildings. With cities getting larger and more complex all around the world, it’s important we manage their growth in intelligent ways.
Planners make sure our cities are attractive places to live and work now, and sustainable into the future.
What will you do
Our Master of Planning is an intensive, broad-based degree that builds knowledge and skills for the professional realm. It is accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia. You will:
study urbanisation, policy, theory, practice and planning law
understand urban development processes in depth
consider resilience to natural disasters and climate change
explore techniques for engaging communities in planning
apply your learning in real-life planning simulations and an architectural design project.
Where could it take you
You might write policy to guide long-term regional planning. You could work to protect and preserve natural and historic heritage sites. Perhaps you’ll renew declining urban areas or develop master plans for housing, transport or infrastructure.
