Urban design professionals are in demand. We'll help you develop design skills that relate to a broader social, environmental and economic context, so that you can link individual architectural projects with overall planning strategies.
- We’ll encourage you to critically examine the key urban development challenges that cities are facing today. You’ll explore local urban areas in Sheffield and compare these areas with other UK and international contexts in Europe as well as in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. You'll also investigate the role of designers and citizens in the processes of city making.
- Central to the Urban Design course at University of Sheffield is a design studio project, and core modules on urban design theory and practice. You can explore a range of themes through optional modules and you’ll take part in study trips and thematic workshops.
