The Master of Design provides professional development in the design of the urban environment. It will enhance skills and understanding of the design disciplines through explorations in social, historic, economic, legal and technological processes and systems that act upon our environments and products. This course advances abilities in visual and design literacy, communication, and design processes, through the integration of aspects of sustainability, project management, leadership and design project applications.
Graduates may become specialist urban designers within their chosen professional field, or use the skills and knowledge gained to diversify their capabilities across a broader spectrum of design disciplines. Graduates will be capable of leading and managing the development and implementation of urban design procedures, policy and practice. Graduates typically work in either private practice as urban designers, or in government organisations as urban policy developers and implementers.
Early exit with a graduate diploma is available after completing two common units and two specialisation units.
A four-year full-time bachelor degree in a relevant discipline area, or equivalent qualification determined by the Faculty, and a grade point average of 5.0 or more (on a 7-point scale) in that study. Applicants from a non-relevant background may gain entry through successful completion of BN85, the Graduate Certificate in Built Environment and Engineering.
If requested, supply documentation of professional work experience as detailed in Completing the PG Form.
