About Planning at UQ
Planning at UQ is concerned with strategic, long-term structural and statutory approaches to improve built and natural environments, often working through the legislative framework that controls land use.
UQ's Planning research and teaching staff are among Australia's best practitioners, and we enjoy international links with collaborators in the US, Canada, France and Indonesia.
Our wide-ranging expertise spans:
- urban design
- transport and infrastructure
- information technology
- heritage and conservation
- resource management
- environmental planning and monitoring
- law and practice
- commercial and industrial development
Employers recognise UQ Planning degrees as delivering confident, knowledgeable and experienced graduates - our Bachelor of Regional and Town Planning is one of Australia's leading Planning programs, and our Masters of Urban and Regional Planning was the first masters-level program in Queensland to be accredited by the Planning Institute of Australia.
