The School of the Built Environment offers a modern and progressive dynamic for students, industry and researchers through a transdisciplinary approach that mixes property economics, construction management, planning, property development and project management disciplines.
This spread of disciplines provides a vertically integrated view of the built environment, which equips students and graduates with the ability to solve problems in a creative, sustainable and commercially viable way. UTS: Built Environment aims to be the preferred place employers come to find work ready graduates; and produce students who are brave, progressive and future-aware thinkers.
Applied learning at UTS: Built Environment is increasingly enhanced by digitally driven modes of teaching and learning including Building Information Modelling, virtual simulations, serious games and advanced modes of communication. The UTS: Built Environment teaching model also benefits from its practice oriented staff plus its adjunct professors, industry teaching fellows, regular site visits and real world contexts for teaching and learning.
UTS: Built Environment provides an excellent pathway into professional practice by virtue of being accredited by all the main professional bodies in Australia, as well as key international bodies, including the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). The School's five programs hold a total of 18 accreditations, thus allowing students to optimise their professional and networking opportunities. With its strong mix of vertically integrated disciplines, UTS: Built Environment offers a rich tapestry for research to merge academic talent and industry needs. We have recognised opinion leaders in carbon trading property rights, public transport planning, affordable housing and construction systems. To develop these and other topic areas, UTS: Built Environment has established research groups which penetrate at applied, consultancy and theory based research levels, including:
- The Built Environment Design and Management group; and
- The Asia Pacific Centre for Complex Real Property Rights
