About Program

Our Master of Urban Design equips you with concepts and skills that will future-proof your career as an urban designer, project manager or urban planner. Graduates from our Master of Architecture and Urban Design can also pursue careers in architecture. Urban Design is about shaping urban environments across a range of scales — from individual buildings and streets to neighbourhoods, suburbs and entire cities and their wider regions. Through a future-focused, design-led approach, you’ll gain in-depth knowledge of how transport, community, environment, economy and policy fit together to make the healthy, inclusive, culturally-significant and sustainable places we can all call ‘home’.

Use cutting-edge tech to master visual communication and data/urban analytics skills while develop your spatial thinking skills by combining architectural, creative and evidence-based approaches to urban challenges. You’ll get to engage with industry experts and tackle real-world issues like designing for the future health, sustainable mobility and resilience of cities. Our students love the positive opportunity Urban Design provides for thinking in more integrated ways about places. Career opportunitiesMaster of Urban Design graduates will be knowledgeable about contemporary urban design thinking and be skilled in cutting edge urban analysis and design technology. Urban design and strategic planning skills are highly sought after in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
