Have you ever wondered how the town or city in which you live developed? Or about who makes the decisions regarding what type of development takes place and where? Maybe you’re passionate about protecting our natural resources and rural environments from detrimental development.
Effective urban design and environmental management is crucial in an age when governments and societies all over the world are struggling to deliver sustainable development.
On this Discover Day you will consider the real-life issues faced by professionals in the planning and management of our built and natural environments. It will be a hands-on experience with brief talks and practical tasks to give you a flavour of what urban designers and environmental managers actually do. Plus, you will get the chance to quiz our current students about what they enjoy about the course and the type of careers they hope to enter.
Manchester is a great place to study urban design and environmental management; it was the world's first industrial city and is now a vibrant 21st century metropolis. It is a place of major urban change with plenty of scope to explore urban development pressures and environmental impact.
