    Professional Outcomes

    The urban design and sustainability focus of the Bond program is geared towards one of the most rapidly developing areas of planning practice. State and local government opportunities for planners are strong in several areas including integrated transport planning, affordable housing strategy development, regional planning and various aspects of urban design.

Extensive opportunities also exist in property development and community organisations.
