This degree will enhance your knowledge and skills in applying the principles of sustainable development to the planning, design, construction and management of the 21st century city.

Education for sustainability is about empowering professionals to take on the challenge, it is transformative rather than merely transmissive, it is holistic and driven by critical thinking, and ultimately is about becoming a champion for change. The task begins with a focus on ‘triple bottom line’ sustainability and life cycle thinking as well as considering the differing value systems and cultures which influence the ways communities shape their built environments. The Master of Sustainable Built Environment provides the opportunity to explore these challenges in depth and adapt them to the needs of diverse professional and cultural settings. It is both academically interdisciplinary and linked to practical application in industry.

Career opportunities Graduates of this program pursue careers across a wide spectrum of positions in federal, state or local government agencies, as sustainability professionals in the built environment industry, in non-government organisations (NGOs) and as self-employed consultants. Specialised streams in the program You have the option of specialising your degree through either a research stream or design studio in your final semester. You can select from a broad range of postgraduate elective courses both at UNSW Built Environment and from across the University to customise your learning to your career development and aspirations.

26 Advance your skills You will examine issues of sustainability, their interconnectedness and interdependencies at building, neighbourhood, city and regional scales. You will develop skills in life cycle thinking, sustainable planning and design, energy and material modelling and assessment and the complex interrelationships between humans and their habitats.

Why study the Master of Urban Development and Design? You will develop theoretical grounding, practical experience and expert skills in city-making as a creative field. The program combines design studios with advanced seminars, case study investigations and international workshops, connecting with fellow universities, city agencies and urban design professionals to deepen your understanding of the 21st century city.

UNSW

MUDD integrates three fields of urban research: 1

Spatial political economy – the manifestation in urban form of global patterns of capital formation, invest- ment and disinvestment

2 Urban design principles and paradigms – normative models of‘good city form’ grounded in aesthetic, social and environmental concerns. 3

Urban design as public policy – the intersection of public policy, design principles, urban governance and the deal-making of the property sector in defense of the public realm.

Built Environment

Work on global urban design issues You will gain a global perspective on urban design through the MUDD international design studio – a core requirement of the degree. In a two to three week workshop setting, you will collaborate with universities and/or planning agencies overseas on a critical urban project. MUDD has conducted 46 international studios over the past 22 years – in cities which include Beijing, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Hanoi, Djakarta, Delhi, Mumbai, Tokyo, Nagoya, Portland, New York, Chicago, Venice, Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Budapest, Berlin, Hamburg, Buenos Aires, Valparaíso and Cape Town.

Engage with urban development and design in Sydney

Benefit from multidisciplinary learning

You will engage with Sydney as part of the MUDD program’s commitment to understanding our city as a continuing case study in urban development. Through advanced studios on issues such as waterfront development, urban infrastructure, urban consolidation, urban centres, urban conservation and neighbourhood design, the relative degree of transparency in the making of the Australian city provides deep grounding in urban development processes.

As a post-professional program, MUDD is based on multi-disciplinary learning, integrating knowledge and skills from Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Planning, Engineering, Urban Economics, Property Development and cultural studies.

Be connected to a global network Our network of MUDD graduates extends across the world from Australia to Asia, the Americas and Europe. This interactive network allows you to communicate and share the latest developments in our field. Postgraduate Guide

Pathway to extension program The three-semester MUDD program is also a pathway to a research-based fourth semester in the MUDD (Extension) program. This provides the opportunity to undertake a Graduate Research Project on a critical issue of urban design as preparation for practice in a specialist area and/or higher studies at Masters by Research or Ph.D levels.

Career opportunities On completion of the MUDD degree you can work in urban design consultancies, city agencies, the development industry or head your own professional practice in urban design. You can also proceed to doctoral studies at a major international university and a career in academia. Admission Requirements There are proposed changes to the admission requirements for the three-semester MUDD Program (8131) and the foursemester MUDD (Extension) Program (8141) which may include the submission of a portfolio, and in the case of 8141 also a statement of interest in undertaking an urban design research project.

Postgraduate Guide

You will also be offered an international study studio where you will focus on major urban projects and policy issues raised in international cities. Locations of the projects will vary from year to year, however projects are typically large-scale urban interventions that are complex by nature. The studio normally involves two weeks of intensive overseas studio and field work followed by 5 to 6 weeks of comparative case study work back in Australia. Career opportunities
