Great design is happening all around the world. If you want to travel overseas, immerse yourself in a different culture and be on pace with the design trends emerging in another country, this degree is for you.
In this course you will learn to combine landscape systems with urban design and environmental science to create outdoor spaces with positive cultural and environmental impact. Your degree will begin with introductory and shared impact lab units where, working with students from other disciplines, you’ll focus on problems and social issues and identify potential solutions connected to industry and community.
Your introductory studies will focus on foundational landscape design knowledge, skills and applications, covering a range of design principles, theories and processes which you will apply to real or simulated design scenarios. Building on these foundations you’ll then explore core units covering building materials, flora, ecology, landform and tectonics as well as the legislative environment governing landscape construction.
In your third year of study you will spend two semesters (96 credit points) studing abroad before returing to transfer skills and knowledge to a workplace or professional context and gain practical work experience with work integrated learning.
