Design and manage the use of land and natural resources to meet societal and environmental needs in a sustainable way. Apply what you learn on real projects with government, developers and community groups. In your first year, you’ll complete units that will lay the foundations for the remainder of your course. You’ll explore the built environment and receive an introduction to planning and design, urban development law, urban analysis and land-use planning. You’ll also develop your skills in negotiation and conflict resolution. In your second year, you’ll continue to build skills in site planning, stakeholder engagement, transport planning and planning law, as well as engaging in units from your selected second major or set of minors. From there, you’ll have the opportunity to refine your understanding of urban design and property development, and use your cumulative knowledge to undertake environmental planning activities. You’ll also reflect on your work placement and consolidate your research skills. In your final year, you’ll explore advanced concepts of urban and regional planning, as well as planning theory and ethics. You’ll engage in real-world planning projects in studio and research environments, and potentially undertake an internship with a member of Queensland’s Parliament. Your studies will culminate in a major research project with a faculty mentor that showcases your career-ready skills.
