About this Unit
In 2010 this unit replaced by 101635 - Urban Planning Placement Project. The Urban Management Placement Project and Thesis are the capstone units for the award. They are undertaken in conjunction with the Project Research Design Seminars which provide many of the research tools for the project and thesis. The project and thesis will enable a high level of conceptual engagement, practical experience, research and critical analysis to be applied to a local or international urban management problem. Students will be offered and negotiate placements in the local urban industry or in select cases abroad. For some local students these placement projects may address appropriate urban management problems in their firm or organisation. In close conjunction with the skills development in the Masters Research Project they will undertake the completion of analysis and reporting on the resolution of a particular urban management research project. These may relate for example to aspects of planning and development, to environmental management, to local economic social or cultural development. The project will culminate in the presentation of a project Report/Thesis. The thesis will be developed in the second half based on the placement project in the first half year of the program. The progressive development of the report and the methodology for its prosecution anticipate the placement to insure the maximum benefit from placement when it occurs.
