The School of Planning at Waterloo has a long history and reputation for its comprehensive approach to planning, integrating environmental best practices into urban planning and design.
The School’s mission is to teach tomorrow’s planners how to create a healthier environment, economy and society – to develop communities in which people enjoy and support vibrant city life, accessible parks, efficient transportation and a clean environment.
About our students
Waterloo’s undergraduate and graduate students have a solid foundation in planning theory, professional planning practices, land use planning fundamentals, design, applied research skills, team and project management skills. They are creative problem solvers, effective communicators, and willing to step into a range of situations.
Partnerships are Key to Past and Future Success!
Our students and faculty look forward to working with you!
The School has revamped its BES (Planning, Honours) and MA/MES (Planning) programs to incorporate a greater focus on planning practice. This will be achieved through work experiences/internships and projects from real-world clients in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors.
