Landscape Architecture Career

As a Landscape Architecture student, you will develop detailed landscape plans to be aesthetically pleasing, functional and compatible with the built and natural environment through a five-year degree accredited by the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board.

The design process involves creative expression from the understanding of the context of landscape, natural systems, cultural systems and social dynamics. It requires you to interpret, imagine, draw, conceptualize, synthesize and construct project ideas that transform the landscape. Landscape Architecture curriculum involves art, construction, horticulture, ecology, environmental science and social science.

Play a critical role in the design of outdoor space for health, safety and wellbeing of individuals. As issues of sustainability are becoming more critical, you will be poised to address them, as you design the interface between humankind and the urban, suburban and natural environment.
