BA Urban Planning and Design

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University
Campus Full time 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. [+]

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.
