For Mid-Career Professionals
Begun in 2000, the Urban Design Certificate Program is the first in Canada to provide education in urban design to early and mid-career professionals. Delivered primarily in Vancouver, with some courses available in Alberta, the courses are taught by leading urban design professionals and focus on current western Canadian urban design issues. Knowledge acquired is applicable to small, mid-sized, and large communities.
Participants work through the program with a group of peers-a cohort-sharing experiences, knowledge, and ideas in a multidisciplinary context.
Eight intensive courses-six mandatory core and two electives-are completed sequentially within two years. Complete program details available online here
