The Master of Landscape Architecture at Unitec Institute of Technology offers landscape architects and graduates the chance to carve out a particular focus of investigation. It's a 'research through design' programme created to contribute to the landscape design discipline as well as your own professional development. The key outcome of this programme is a master level project that demonstrates your specialised skill and/or knowledge in your area of chosen expertise.
There are three possible pathways through the master's, each with an emphasis on developing hands-on experience:
- Develop a research proposal focusing on a specific area that you’re passionate about
- Work with a member of our faculty to develop a collaborative research project
- Develop a research project with a leading Auckland landscape practice
- Access to quality digital design tools
- Can enable practicing landscape architects to study part-time, learn new techniques, sharpen their design skills and keep abreast of current theory
- Focus on practical projects: the degree is "by project", which means that you undertake a project based on an aspect of your landscape architecture practice to date
- No coursework
- Collaborative approach: the Master of Landscape Architecture together with the Master of Architecture, is part of a suite of design programmes at Unitec. Students in both programmes get together for seminars and workshops in order to foster collaboration, new ideas and new approaches to interdisciplinary practice.
- Interaction and feedback with international academics and practitioners
