Why choose this course?

We rely on our natural environment to sustain our lives and our lifestyles. We continually need to improve our understanding and management of the natural environment to balance our development with wise management while minimising impacts and degradation.

QUT is recognised for combining community involvement with design and implementation skills, which are based on links with environmental planning and management, property economics, architecture and landscape architecture.

You will work on inclusive community planning, integrated infrastructure provision, creative design, and practical problem-solving projects run in collaboration with partners in local and state government, developers and local community groups.

An understanding of the mechanisms controlling environmental systems provides the skills required to undertake a great range of scientific environmental planning and management, and tackle problems such as local water quality and ecosystem impacts, soil erosion, catchment and groundwater use, or adaptation to global climate change. 

You will experience some of the most advanced laboratories and field work opportunities in Australia and be taught by staff who are at the top of their fields internationally. You will also stay in touch with the real world, as guest lectures, site visits and opportunities for work integrated learning bring a strong industry flavour to the degree.
