About Urban design

Develop knowledge to shape the public spaces and buildings of our cities. Be ready to face contemporary challenges posed by rapid urbanisation and climate change, with the opportunity to engage in research in areas like sustainable transportation and streetlife intensification.

Differing from architecture, which focuses on individual buildings and structures, urban design looks at groups of buildings, streetscapes, landscapes and the provision of municipal services, and aims to create harmonious, cohesive spaces.

By working in interdisciplinary teams that encourage interaction, collaboration and collegiate working environments, our students are employment-ready for a challenging and rewarding career in Urban Design.
