The built environment covers a broad range of professional skill areas, and leads to careers that help to shape the world in which we live.
Urban designers and planners, architects and landscape designers, property and construction management professionals, as well as heritage and cultural conservators are some of the professional studies within the Melbourne School of Design.
If you are studying the Bachelor of Environments, you can seek entry level positions after graduation in government at all levels, business or with a consultancy. However, most students decide to pursue postgraduate studies to ensure they have the professional qualifications and recognition to build their career.
