The impressive combination of academics and professional leaders ensures you receive relevant, timely and inspiring education resulting in great career prospects.

Our teaching combines theory, knowledge and practical learning. Our teachers prepare you for your career by working on projects provided by industry.

Your learning will be led by our research centre, City Futures. Our research leads the nation on sustainable and urban future. City Futures’ aim is to advance the understanding of Australia’s cities, their people, the policies that manage their growth, and their impact on our environment and economy. Our diverse research agenda is developed to equip you with the knowledge and skills required to tackle the challenges of change in urban environments.

We provide you with project-based learning experiences developed from briefs relevant to and provided by industry. Our strong link with industry ensures you learn up to date and relevant skills needed to meet the challenges of the built environment.
