Be part of a growing field of activity where future land use and development decisions are made.
Urban and regional planners look at whether development ideas are practical by considering economic, human, political, legal, environmental and aesthetic issues, such as how a piece of land should be developed, and what effect this will have on the local community of the environment.
Planners balance the public interest against private interests, to improve the quality of life for everyone and to build a sustainable future. It is a growing area which can have an impact on future land use decisions.
Urban and regional planners require good technical skills about land use planning, a high level of communication skills, knowledge of design, economics and law, and demonstrate sound ethical and professional behaviour. They work in government agencies, consultancies and development firms in Australia or overseas.
Each semester you can undertake studio and fieldwork with planning projects, which can help you to learn core skills recognised by employers in the planning profession.
This course includes regular field work with practical planning projects each semester. You may also have the opportunity to participate in an international study trip to investigate and explore urban planning solutions employed in overseas countries.
