Course Description

Our MSc in Urban Design has been designed to provide a broad understanding of the processes and practices involved in the development and implementation of urban design projects, and to develop the broad range of knowledge and skills required to manage such projects. It has been designed to provide a rigorous understanding of the theoretical and conceptual debates, processes and practices involved in urban design, as both an academic discipline and an interdisciplinary practice, and to develop the broad range of knowledge and skills required of urban design practitioners. Our Course is built on a strong sustainability and place-shaping theme, upon which specialist modules covering a range of urban design aspects and techniques are developed. There is an emphasis throughout the Course on the practical application of these to a broad range of urban design activities and positions across a range of organisations. The MSc in Urban Design adopts the philosophy that every urban designer develops their own unique approach, therefore it is designed to enable and encourage each student to develop their own particular approach that will provide the basis for the life-long development of their urban design skills and career. It has been designed to develop a comprehensive understanding of the role of the urban designer, to develop and implement innovative approaches and solutions to urban design within the broad context of the range of organisations involved, and types of projects that occur. Recognising the importance of teamwork to the success of projects, our course includes development of the knowledge and skills required to effectively lead and/or contribute to teams. It also recognises the growing importance of environmental influences.
