It’s one thing to design a city space but as we face modern issues, it becomes an entirely new challenge to design an attractive city that is functional and sustainable. That is why we offer urban design degree courses.
When you study urban design, you’ll learn how cities can be designed to better accommodate dense populations, while also responding to key challenges such as climate change, public health, urban mobility and housing affordability.
Upon graduation, you’ll be ready for a career in urban design and have the skills required to forge a successful career within architecture and landscape architecture firms, in local government planning authorities or local councils.
