Landscape is changing. Social, environmental and economic factors have shifted the focus of the landscape professions. Today, the spotlight is on ecological restoration, the revitalisation of civic space, urban fringes and infrastructural wastelands, and innovative residential garden design. At Unitec’s Department of Landscape Architecture, we recognise that living roofs offer a unique and viable opportunity for urban biodiversity, infrastructure and stormwater solutions and that landscape designers and landscape architects are one of the key disciplines working with this re-discovered technology. The Department has established a strong foundation of research in this area and introduces students to these concepts during their studies.

The Department teaches Certificate in Home Garden Design, Diploma in Landscape Design, Bachelor of Landscape Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture programmes.

At Unitec Institute of Technology we educate people for work, in work and through work with a comprehensive portfolio of programmes extending from certificates and diplomas through to degrees and doctorates, across a wide range of professional and vocational areas.

Our dual-sector commitment to postgraduate and degree-level study on the one hand, and to vocational education and training on the other, sets us apart from other universities and institutes of technology in New Zealand. Our focus on real world education provides work-ready graduates with professional and vocational skills that are highly sought after in New Zealand and around the world.
