Urban and regional planners ensure that cities, towns and regions have vibrant economies and communities, provide for a high quality of life, and are environmentally sustainable. To achieve this, planners need a good understanding of the way in which societies, economies and environments operate and interact. This Urban and Regional Planning program from The University of Western Australia develops students’ knowledge of concepts and methods, in urban and regional planning and their ability to apply research skills to planning issues.
Planners are employed by local governments, state governments (such as the Department of Planning and the Department of State Development) and in private practice with planning consultancies and property developers. And, they work across a diverse range of areas, including: regional development, environmental management, urban design, public administration, public policy, social research, teaching, land development, and social planning and community development. Graduates of this course are also employable internationally, helping to solve social, economic and environmental problems in other parts of the world.
