Overview

The University of Sydney School of Architecture, Design & Planning offers a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) program of single Units of Study providing a valuable opportunity for individuals to gain and update knowledge, enhance career pathways or explore a personal interest. These subjects are open to professionals with or without prior higher education in these fields.

Our units of study span a range of specialist areas from Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Intelligent Building Controls, to Building Economics – all vital elements of a high performing building. Many of theses units are offered for the first time in Australia at postgraduate level.

Please note that these CPD credits will not count towards a postgraduate award unless you choose to enroll as a part-time or full-time student in which case you will be required to fullfill the appropriate assessment tasks.

There are limited places in some of the units and they will be allocated on first come, first served basis.
