From architecture and planning to economics and law, we’ll give you a broad understanding of the processes and practices involved in urban design. We’ll encourage you to develop your own unique approach to create the spaces in which we live, work and relax.
The urban design discipline lies somewhere between planning and architecture. It’s concerned with conceiving and combining buildings, amenities and open spaces in ways that are logical, useful and give a sense of place.
Many disciplines and issues are involved, from the technical to environmental, societal to economic. Our course will give you the education and training you need to practice urban design and develop your own distinct vision.
Through a series of modules you’ll explore the profession’s key challenges, while developing your technical, commercial and management skills. There’s particular reference to the six ‘RCE’ Eastern England cities and the design challenges they present.
Our course meets the educational requirements of the Urban Design Group and Urban Design Alliance.
You could have a successful career in urban design and conservation, architecture, landscape design, surveying, highway engineering, transport planning, town centre management, planning policy, regeneration and development management. You’re also in the perfect position to continue your academic career and move up to our Built Environment PhD.
We’ll assess you through a combination of patchworks, portfolios, reports, essays, design project material, model-making and your performance during group work.
