Bachelor of Regional and Town Planning
The University of Queensland - St Lucia

Course outline

As a town planner you will assist communities, companies and governments to integrate the environmental, economic and social aspects of development, from site selection to regional considerations. You’ll study land-use planning, urban design, transport and infrastructure planning, use and extension of information technology, heritage and conservation. Learn the principles of resource management, environmental monitoring, planning law and practice, commercial and industrial development, and policy making and implementation. You’ll learn how to apply planning theory and develop design skills through project work. These projects will vary in complexity, from simple small-scale projects to comprehensive development schemes, often in real-life situations in conjunction with local authorities and community organisations. Work with industry, government and community partners to build your professional networks. You will gain professional recognition through membership of the Planning Institute of Australia.
