Summary

Complex urban problems require planning professionals who are versatile and multifaceted: they need to be persuasive collaborators, articulate mediators and strategic organisers.

Our Master of Urban Planning and Design is accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia. It gives students the technical capabilities and creative capacity to address the big challenges facing our cities.

Whether you’re keen to upskill or change careers as a Monash Urban Planning and Design graduate you will be ready to work towards a sustainable and people-centered future.

The degree seeks applicants from a diverse range of disciplines: architecture and design, economics, engineering, environmental science, geography, international development, and landscape architecture.
You’ll build on what you already know to make a strong platform for the next stage in your career.

Employers now require planners who can bring fresh perspectives to solving urban problems, and readily adapt to new roles in the workplace.

This course clearly puts you ahead of the competition by training you to integrate design with traditional policy-based knowledge.

There are many directions your career might take and you can be employed in challenging positions in a range of organisations.

You may go into local government as a strategic or statutory planner working on local development proposals or resolving community disputes. You may work in state agencies that manage environmentally sensitive areas or providing transport and other infrastructure.

You may work with Australian or international firms that specialise in community planning or delivering affordable housing. Other graduates fill roles in not-for-profit organisations in underdeveloped or overdeveloped places far and wide, where you’ll confront diverse climatic and cultural issues.
