MASTER OF SCIENCE IN URBAN DESIGN

Urban Design is a new phenomenon which deals with the urban microform at the macro-scale. The focus is on the shaping of various pieces of urban land at macro-scale and with spaces between them at micro-scale levels. It also deals with designing and construction of urban elements. In this regard, this programme aims at educating students with a background in town planning; architecture and other related disciplines in The Built Environment field. The main objective is to develop theoretical frameworks that will be used in practice and develop urban landscapes. Urban Design is responsible for the creation of great urban centres, world heritage cites, landmarks, skylines, street furniture, transport and energy systems, defensible open spaces and environmental ambience. Therefore this programme seeks to capacitate urban developers and managers with the necessary skills and technology to introduce, design and manage urban services. For instance the focus will be on the sound provision and management of housing units, energy supplies, water and sewer reticulation systems, transport networks, storm water drains, communication and recreational facilities, public lighting, corridor, attraction centres and service buildings. The programme will further equip urban developers and managers with the Research, Training and Development (RT&D) techniques to keep themselves abreast with urban environmental changes. It also deals with a number of cross cutting issues like urban agriculture, climate change, urban sociology and urban disaster management, land economics and Urban Design Information Systems (UDIS) as well as sustainable SMART cities.

STRUCTURE OF THE DEGREE PROGRAMME

This is a full-time programme that shall extend over a total period of eighteen (18) months. The first twelve (12) months shall be devoted to the taught component of the programme and shall be divided into two (2) semesters.

A series of sessions encompassing practical drawing and sketches of urban design proposals for selected sites in Zimbabwe.
Urban Design Project II
A group project which will normally be a real-life large-scale urban design and development project involving land reclamation and infrastructure provision leading to 3-D built form.
Designed to professional standards involving relevant urban design theory and implementation criteria, and conducted with participation of professionals in both public and private sectors.

BUD 6104 Economics For Urban Design - (3 credits)
This course introduces principles of microeconomics and macroeconomics relevant to the design and development professions. Topics include: constraints and economic choice; demand, supply, returns and cost; land and rent; capital and interest; resources and productivity; economics of firms; banking and financial markets; factor prices; national income and business fluctuations; aspects of design and development decisions.

BUD 6105 Research Methods in Urban Design-(3 credits)
The course focuses on various methods and techniques fundamental in data collection, analysis and presentation. The overall objective of the course is to impart skills to students that can assist them in preparing technical reports and dissertations.
