Apply creative and innovative thinking to design modern healthy cities.
We believe responding to mass urbanisation will be one of the most significant challenges of the 21st century. That’s why we offer urban design courses at Swinburne.
Learn how cities can be designed to better accommodate dense populations, while also reacting to issues, including climate change, public health, urban mobility, and housing affordability. Explore the multi-dimensional responses needed to tackle these challenges including embracing three-dimensional spaces, utilising big-data, weather conditions, land-use, and safety alongside the economic, environmental, social and cultural aspects of a city.
Future careers can be found in urban design and planning practices, architecture and landscape architecture firms, or in local government planning authorities and local councils.
