We shape future cities. Cities that are resilient, informed, healthy and smart – that are connected, green, liveable and inclusive.

Our vision is to be a global leader through high impact research and education that transforms built environments and improves the lives of the people who live and work in these communities.

To do this we are building an agile platform for education, research and exchange that can respond to the changing needs of the profession. We also engender a culture and capacity to anticipate the unknown; by developing skilled and enquiring graduates, with conscience, who can positively engage, adapt and shape future cities – but always in a way that puts the planet, its people, first.
