Student benefit from close ties to industry. UTS academics have professional backgrounds and connections, and class projects are often based on real development scenarios. Recent project examples include the Gladesville Hospital site, Lindfield Town Centre and the Sydney Light Rail Corridor. As many students have extensive industry experience too, there are excellent opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and networking across a range of fields including property development, valuation, construction, engineering, town planning and architecture.
This course is focused on development and delivered with a practical focus. It provides a thorough and advanced grounding in all aspects of the property development process, markets and institutions, including the political, managerial, legal and physical systems which contribute to the effective management and development of property assets, property investment portfolios and development proposals. It is designed to provide valuers and other property practitioners with opportunities to enhance their qualifications and expertise, and provide professionals from other fields with an understanding of property development and investment issues and techniques.
The degree provides property-related professionals such as architects, engineers, construction managers, valuers, planners and business or finance professionals the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and qualifications and obtain a more holistic understanding of property development and related processes. This enables graduates to expand their careers or move outside of their original professional area to higher or broader roles within the property development industry and/or offer new services to clients.
