BA Urban Planning and Design

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
Campus 3 - 4 years September 2017 China Suzhou

Urban planning and design considers the nature of human settlements and how they should be shaped from a range of perspectives. On this programme you will learn how to formulate strategic plans, design liveable spaces and create public places. [+]

Best Part time Bachelors in Urban Design 2017. Overview As the size of the human population increases, cities now need to respond to a range of complex urban phenomena including rapid expansion and urban shrinkage. These complex issues demand more sophisticated solutions in order to achieve sustainable development. Students learning urban planning and design need to understand not only the processes of spatial change in the built and natural environments, but also study the arguments for intervening in these processes. Students based at XJTLU have the unique chance to study at the heart of what is one of the world’s most fascinating classrooms: China. The BA/BEng Urban Planning and Design programme offers students the opportunity to study both local and international urban and rural landscapes in a dynamic and supportive learning environment. Students will be able to equip themselves with knowledge and skills to analyse, critique and, ultimately, contribute to the sustainability of urban and rural development both in China and around the world. On completion, students will be able to work in sectors such as urban planning, urban design, city management, central and local government policy, consultancy, and real estate development. Urban planning and design students learn how to formulate strategic plans, design liveable spaces and create public places. You will consider the social, economic and environmental needs of a town or city and the impact of those on the built environment. Graduates help companies and governments make difficult decisions on the use of land including whether to develop, what to develop and how to develop. In recent years, urban planning and design has become particularly concerned with the preservation and impact of the natural environment, for example, how we deal with the growing pollution in our cities and concerns about natural disasters like earthquakes and floods. Other concerns include the scarcity of land and how to achieve an efficient and effective use of space. The rate of development in China means that good planning is essential. The BA/BEng Urban Planning and Design programme at XJTLU is international in focus and has been designed to help students appreciate the similarities and differences between planning in China, the UK and other countries throughout the world. Unique selling points of the programme • Our globally competitive, professional programme is unique in its focus on both local Chinese and international planning and urban design policy and practice • You will be offered a range of learning experiences such as interactive studios, field surveys and local and international field trips • The Department of Urban Planning and Design offers a supportive learning environment which encourages you to become an independent and active learner and critical thinker • Gain transferable skills that provide a platform for success in your future study or employment in planning and urban design-related fields • Earn two degrees: an XJTLU degree from the Chinese Ministry of Education and a globally recognised degree from the University of Liverpool, a member of the Russell Group of leading UK universities. Knowledge and skills On successful completion of the BA/BEng Urban Planning and Design programme, you will be able to demonstrate: • knowledge and understanding of the natural, economic, socio-economic and political factors that are shaping our surroundings • knowledge and understanding of how the built and natural environment is managed in different places around the world • an understanding of the role, scope and limitations of contemporary town and regional planning in contributing to the management of growth and change and the conservation of the built and natural environment • knowledge and understanding of the legal basis for action in environment and planning, and the relationship between planning and environmental issues • an appreciation of decision-making processes that represent the views of the diverse communities who are affected by those decisions • an ability to think clearly and critically, to reason logically and to undertake systematic research • techniques in computing, numeracy, design and various forms of communication • skills in teamwork to achieve prescribed tasks collectively • the ability to reflect critically on your studies and learning. Modules: Year One UK degrees are three years long whereas in China they are four, therefore we do accept students with certain qualifications directly into Year Two, which is the start of the main academic programme. Most students, however, enter into Year One, which provides you with a range of interesting modules, language classes and core skills for your degree. Modules: Year Two You will study the following core subjects to understand the nature of human settlements: • Planning in China and the UK • Urban and environmental economics • Planning skills • Planning history and practices internationally • Neighbourhood planning. Modules: Year Three You will build on this foundation and learn about knowledge and expertise needed to become professional urban planners and designers. • Environmental sustainability • Spatial design and the built environment • Planning methodology • Networks and cities • Geographic information systems (GIS) • Projecting and managing the urban futures. Modules: Year Four In your final year, you will be required to take a set of specialist modules in the area of environment and planning or urban design, and undertake a substantial research project, spanning both semesters. You will also learn about: • Planning theory • Planning and property development • Planning law and governance • International planning • Final year project. Career prospects There is a high demand for graduates with knowledge of urban planning and design, so you will have many different options to choose from including: • policy planner: developing plans for the future of countries, cities and communities • urban designer: creating attractive, safe and pleasant places in which to live, work or visit • property developer: the right developments for the right place • transport planner: finding sustainable transport solutions • environmental planner: tackling the effects of climate change • regeneration planner: bringing life to places that have become run-down • conversation planner: helping to protect our natural resources and heritages • community planner: engaging with people about how their communities are developed • smart city planner: promoting future cities that incorporate the latest in new technologies.

Cities, buildings, interiors. These have major influences on how we experience our world. In spatial design, we look at the urban environment and at indoor and outdoor spaces at small and large scale. It is a discipline in which cultural and artistic awareness, social engagement, economic responsibility and technical affinity come together creatively. You learn to deal with complex tasks and situations that society faces. You learn to develop your own vision and to translate it into concrete design practice. The method of learning is through projects which cover current themes such as repurposing of buildings, sustainability and identity. In previous years, these themes included ‘quick-visit museums’, a flagship store for a new brand, a ‘long stay hotel’ in an industrial area of Rotterdam, a multi-cultural theatre in a church in Zuidwijk (Rotterdam), and an overhaul of empty buildings in the inner city of Rotterdam. While working on design projects, you take practical classes on analysis; the application of materials; architecture; model (maquette) building techniques; draughtsmanship; software programmes; techniques for light, colour, texture; and presentation techniques; next to that you take subject related theory and history. And of course you can do an exchange abroad in for example Barcelona, Glasgow or Helsinki. After completing the course, you can work as an interior designer, assistant architect, designer of interior or exterior objects, exhibition designer or spatial designer. You could also further specialise to gain a Master Interior Architecture & Retail Design at WdKA’s Piet Zwart Institute, or at the Rotterdam Academy of Architecture and Urban Design. Creating Pioneers Our successful Spatial Design alumni include: Tom van Odijk & David Baars (TomDavid Architecten); Dennis Vedder; Edwin van de Velde; the duo Daniëlle Linscheer & Joyce Brouwer (known from Hostel/Atelier Ani & Haakien); and Ashley Govers (From Form, founder and partner). PORTFOLIO CHECKLIST Are you … talented in visual arts? independent and responsible? dedicated and motivated? entrepreneurial? Then visit one of our Open Days or Open Evenings – and bring your portfolio! – and apply for admission. WHAT A selection of 10-15 works which were preceded by a creative process For example: designs, objects, photos, films, games, animations, fashion (accessories), furniture, models, drawings, posters, campaigns, paintings, usable artifacts and sculptures. You can publish and present all of this in a neat traditional portfolio folder, but you can also use different methods: 3D work can be brought in a (cardboard) box, digital work can be presented on a laptop or tablet. Please note: apart from these works, please show us some other things you created. Make a careful selection between the two. That way, we can assess to what extent you have an insight in your own qualities and your own work. [-]

Architecture

Auburn Global
Campus 5 years May 2017 USA Auburn

The bachelor of architecture degree is awarded upon the completion of the five-year curriculum. Qualified students may elect to pursue concurrently a second bachelor of interior architecture degree. [+]

The bachelor of architecture degree is awarded upon the completion of the five-year curriculum. Qualified students may elect to pursue concurrently a second bachelor of interior architecture degree. In the United States, most state registration boards require a degree from an accredited professional degree program as a pre-requisite for licensure. The National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB), which is the sole agency authorized to accredit U.S. professional degree programs in architecture, recognizes three types of degrees: the Bachelor of Architecture, the Master of Architecture, and the Doctor of Architecture. A program may be granted a six, three or two-year term of accreditation, depending on its degree of conformance with established educational standards. Doctor of Architecture and Master of Architecture degree programs may consist of a pre-professional undergraduate degree and a professional graduate degree, that when earned sequentially, constitute an accredited professional education. However, the pre- professional degree is not, by itself, recognized as an accredited degree. Auburn's next accreditation visit for the architecture program is in 2017. Auburn University, School of Architecture, Planning, and Landscape Architecture offers the following NAAB-accredited degree program: Bachelor of Architecture (159 credits). The four-year pre-professional Bachelor of Science in Environmental Design is not a professionally accredited degree. Auburn University is a member of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture. Students are encouraged to work at an architect’s office, on a construction site or in another approved professional endeavor prior to their fourth year. The bachelor of interior architecture degree program offers a holistic approach to design that focuses on the relationship between interior and exterior space. Interior Architecture students develop enhanced critical thinking abilities in relation to the construction of space, progressive materiality, sustainability, and representation. Auburn has integrated Interior Architecture and Architecture in this unique program resulting in the granting of two degrees upon completion of the fifth year of study. It is not possible to get the undergraduate degree in interior architecture without the dual Architecture professional degree. Architecture students must apply separately to the Interior Architecture Program through a competitive application process. The graduate who receives a bachelor of interior architecture degree and a bachelor of architecture degree is a person trained in interior architecture and architecture who is qualified to sit for an Architectural License Exam after completing IDP and then sit for the NCDIQ Exam for Interiors, based on a transcript review. See advisor for details. Architecture Academic Standards and Policies Enrollment in the second year studios is limited and eligibility for acceptance to Architecture and Interior Architecture is based on performance in courses in the first year of the model curriculum. The Architecture Program offers two options for completing the Pre-Architecture first year of the model curriculum: the Foundation Unit Studio sequence and the Summer Design Studio sequence. Placement of Pre-Architecture students into either of these entry sequences is determined by an Architecture Program committee. Information regarding the entry sequence placement process will be mailed to all Pre-Architecture students who have been admitted to Auburn on or before February 1 preceding fall term entry. Students not participating in the Foundation Unit Studio have the opportunity to be selected to enter the design studio sequence in the summer term after their first year of enrollment. Placement in the Foundation Unit Studio Sequence will be communicated prior to Camp War Eagle. Pre-Architecture students must receive an “S” in ARCH 1000, ARCH 1010, and ARCH 1060 prior to being admitted to the ARCH 1020/ARCH 1420 course sequence. Students accepted into the Foundation Unit Studio sequence may not defer their acceptance to another academic year. Students that fail to successfully complete the fall semester studio sequence, or students not accepted into the Second Year Studio sequence at the end of the spring semester, will not be readmitted to the Foundation Unit Program. These students may elect to participate in the following Summer Design Studio session and will be required to participate in the entire summer program. Eligibility is dependent upon Summer Design criteria. Auburn University students who successfully complete 27 hours, pass ARCH 1000, General Physics I, and Calculus I or MATH 1150, and achieve a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.80 are eligible to be accepted into Summer Design. In the event that all available Summer Design seats are not filled based on the stated criteria, the committee may opt to fill the remaining seats based on academic performance of the applicants. Summer Design Studio sequence is divided into two sessions. During the course of the first session each student’s work is periodically ranked relative to her/his peers. At the end of the first session the students with the highest rank-in-class are accepted into Session Two, subject to available space. Students not accepted to the Second Year Studio may elect to retake the entire sequence of courses during the following Summer Design Session if they meet the admission criteria or they may elect to change majors. Admission to the Second Year Studio sequence is predicated on the receipt of a grade of C or better in both ARCH 1020 and ARCH 1420. The Grade Adjustment Policy may not be used to progress to Second Year Studio. In the event a grade of D or F is received in any required course in the major, a review is required for continuance in the program. Based on the outcome of this review, a student may be required to repeat the course or, in the case of design studios, the entire studio sequence for that respective year-level. Students receiving a second D when repeating a required course will be reviewed for continuance in the program. Similarly, a student receiving a majority of grades of C or poorer may be reviewed for continuance in the program. Students must maintain professional standards of behavior, as outlined in the Student Policy eHandbook, at all times while on university property and while participating in school sponsored trips, events, and activities. Failure to do so may be grounds for dismissal from the program. To proceed to the beginning sequence of design studio at third, fourth, or fifth year levels, the student must have completed all required prerequisite courses for that respective year-level, as indicated in the model curriculum. Enrollment in 3000-level BSCI courses will be limited to those students with a GPA of 2.50 or above and second-year standing in design studio. Architecture Transfer Students Transfer students in Architecture must meet the minimum requirements as set by Auburn University to be admitted to the College of Architecture, Design and Construction. They will be advised to begin with the Summer Design Studio Sequence. Transfer students must also meet the minimum qualifications for admission to Summer Design. Transfer students should contact CADC Student Services no later than January to request a space in the Summer Design Studio. Foundation Unit Studio placement for transfer candidates is determined each year by the school head, the Architecture program chair, the First-Year Program coordinator and a representative from the Office of Student Services. Up to 20 percent of Foundation Unit Studio positions may be reserved for transfers each year; however, the positions will only be filled if the transferring student’s academic performance is competitive with the Foundation Unit Studio top tier ranking students from that academic year freshman admission round. It is possible to have a Foundation Unit Studio with no transfer students. Transfers accepted into the Foundation Unit Studio Sequence may not defer their acceptance to another academic year. Transfer students from NAAB-accredited architecture programs, in addition to meeting the minimum requirements as set by Auburn University, will be required to present a portfolio of their work to the Academic Review Committee (ARC) for evaluation. The ARC will determine the level of placement in the professional architecture design studio sequence or in the pre-architecture program. Special Opportunities for Qualified Architecture and Interior Architecture Students During the third year of design studio students may participate in at least one of a variety of field studies opportunities aimed at enriching students’ learning experience and preparing students for professional life. These opportunities include both an international studies program with a variety of options for study abroad as well as the possibility of participation in the Rural Studio - a program based in rural west Alabama where students engage local communities via hands-on service-learning projects to help meet needs of shelter and improved quality-of-life. In addition to the required third year opportunities, students may have additional opportunities during their fifth year of study to participate in the Rural Studio or the Auburn Center for Architecture and Urban Studies - a design center in downtown Birmingham where upper-level students and faculty engage in community-centered, service-learning activities. Participation in each of these programs is limited, and students may be allowed to participate based on academic standing, available resources, and a competitive selection process. Professional internships with practicing architects are recommended prior to the last year of study. Architecture/Interior Architecture (ARIA) Academic Standards and Admission Policy Participation in the Interior Architecture (ARIA) program is highly selective. Students are eligible to apply for the Interior Architecture program in the spring of their second year of the Architecture Program. This policy allows for a summer ARIA thesis class size based on yearly available faculty resources. Spring semester applications (2nd year students) The Interior Architecture faculty will make a selection of second year students at the end of Spring semester. Class size is based on available faculty resources and may vary each year. These students will initially participate in the ARIA-designated Third Year Fall Semester Studio. Selection of students is based primarily on the ARIA faculty-comprised Admission Board’s assessment of submitted design work. The assessment will be based on the students’ statements of intent and on three projects that demonstrate a high quality of design ability. A high quality of design ability is considered to be an indication of an applicant’s capability to take on the extra degree requirements of the ARIA degree. Additionally, it is required that accepted students have completed their appropriate studio coursework and maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA for conditional acceptance into the ARIA dual degree program. The students must maintain a minimum of a 3.0 GPA in their studio coursework during the third and fourth year to proceed into the ARIA Summer Thesis semester. If a 3.0 studio GPA is not maintained, a review by the ARIA Admissions Board will be required to determine a student’s eligibility to continue in the program. [-]
