Aims and Characteristics

The Environmental Design programme aims to provide students with creative, professional skills and knowledge that are necessary for a successful career in the design industry that focuses on the spaces and settings that define the liveable environment.

The objective is to educate environmental designers to have a broad interdisciplinary view of their roles in programming and influencing the spatial and material settings of liveable cities.

Graduates are expected to cover a number of spatial fields in their design of the environment, forming crossovers between architects, interior designers, geographers, landscape designers, product designers and project developers.
Commencing from a spatial and architectural foundation, graduates will gain knowledge of how environmental design intersects with other spatial and technical disciplines including architecture, landscape, urban design, and planning policies and environmental technologists.
