EVDS's MPlan is uniquely placed within Canadian planning education and has several differentiating strengths:

DESIGN AND STUDIO-BASED
Our Master of Planning program is a distinctly different design- and studio-based program. This studio emphasis means that students are engaged with real-world problems, with real clients, often helping to directly shape the built environment, and that 3-dimensional and spatial thinking are vitally important. Studio-based learning is applied learning -- synthesizing the skills and knowledge gained throughout the program to address complex problems at a variety of scales, and emphasizing a design approach.

AN ENTERPRISING REGION
As the only accredited planning program in Alberta, we are located in Canada's most enterprising city. The Calgary region is a real-world laboratory with a wide range of opportunities and challenges that Canadian cities and communities face.

INTERDISCIPLINARITY
Also unique to EVDS is the strong tradition of interdisciplinary learning involving Planning, Architecture, and Landscape Architecture. Students are exposed to the interdisciplinary nature of environmental design through several touch-points between programs.

SUSTAINABILITY
Building on the strong tradition of EVDS in ecological design and environmental science, environmental sustainability is a core principle that runs throughout the MPlan program and is a lens through which planning problems are viewed and solutions are crafted.

INTERNATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES
EVDS has well-developed international study abroad semesters in Barcelona, Spain, Tokyo, Japan, and the Pacific Northwest. As well, several International Block Courses are offered by EVDS to various locations.

The Master of Engineering Leadership (MEL) in High Performance Buildings is an intensive one-year degree program for engineers and architects who want to make a difference in the building sector. You’ll graduate from this program with a strong technical foundation in energy systems design modelling, equipping you to be a technical leader in the integrated design, construction and maintenance of green building energy systems. This technical foundation is balanced by courses in leadership and business, giving you a powerful skillset for overseeing the design of green buildings, from the initial planning stages through to implementation and operation.

The project-based curriculum has three primary areas of focus: architectural courses on green building design and regenerative development; engineering courses on energy modelling and design, and two interdisciplinary capstone projects where you will work with clients to develop real-world solutions to their design challenges. While 60 per cent of your classes will focus on your technical specialization, the remaining 40 per cent are leadership development courses that will enhance your business, communication and people skills. Delivery of the management and leadership courses are in partnership with UBC's Sauder School of Business.

Graduates of this program will have the technical and leadership skills to improve the energy performance of existing buildings and design integrated high-performance energy systems for new buildings.

What Makes The Program Unique?

The MEL in High Performance Building degree was developed in close collaboration with industry partners, who spoke to us of the high demand for high-performance building experts. Government and industry employers are seeking professionals who have the creative and visionary skills to develop the processes and systems that can lead to lasting change, and who have the cross-functional technical and business skills to propose innovative solutions, manage teams and direct projects.

To complement your academic studies, professional development workshops, delivered by industry leaders, are offered throughout the year-long program. These extra-curricular sessions cover a range of topics such as:

-Leadership fundamentals

-Giving and receiving feedback

-Learning how to deliver a successful pitch

-Effective presenting

The workshops also provide opportunities to network with professionals from a wide range of industries, UBC faculty and students in the MEL and MHLP programs.

Career Options

Energy use in buildings is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, making it a high priority to design more energy-efficient buildings and retrofit existing buildings. This is a growing sector, with opportunities in consulting, construction, manufacturing and government.

General Information

The field of planning practice (encompassing urban, community and regional planning, and related sub-specializations) has long been recognized as a professional field in Canada, as elsewhere in the world. Founded by Dr. H.P. Oberlander in 1951, the School of Community and Regional Planning (SCARP) is one of the oldest planning schools in Canada. Its Vision is “Sustainability through the Democratization of Planning,” and in achieving that Vision, SCARP's Mission is “to advance the transition to sustainability through excellence in integrated policy and planning research, professional education and community service.” The objective of SCARP’s new Master of Community and Regional Planning (MCRP) program is to further the Vision and Mission of the School by providing students, through cutting-edge content and innovative pedagogy, with the essential theory, skills, methods, and critical thinking and analytical tools they need to address the complex social and environmental issues of a rapidly urbanizing world. It is intensive and professionally oriented, and students emerge as well-rounded, critical, and creative agents of change.

What makes the program unique?

The MCRP program offers an innovative curriculum that draws upon the expertise of SCARP faculty as well as practicing planners. The strong procedural emphasis on integrated approaches to planning for substantive issues is reflected in the specific requirements for the MCRP degree, as well as the research, professional practice, and service activities of the faculty, staff, and students.

The MCRP program is further guided and informed by the accreditation and standards criteria of the American Institute of Certified Planners’ Planning Accreditation Board and the Canadian Institute of Planners’ accrediting body, the Professional Standards Board. SCARP is one of only two schools in Canada with a master’s program fully accredited by both the Canadian and American planning organizations.

The School is highly regarded within the international profession of planning, and its setting in Vancouver, which attracts world-wide attention and acclaim for excellence in urban planning, enhances the educational experience of SCARP students.

Come and be part of Canada’s newest school of Landscape Architecture. The University of Calgary launched the Master of Landscape Architecture (MLA) in the Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS) in September 2015. This is the first graduate program in landscape architecture in Canada to be launched since 1980, and is situated in the geographically and culturally dynamic context of Alberta and Western Canada. Our program is strategically positioned to engage with the critical sociocultural and ecological challenges of place- making, climate change and resilience. Our MLA is intended as a program for the 21st century - to be leaders and to train leaders in becoming catalysts for positive local and global change.

The Master of Landscape Architecture program complements the existing professional, accredited programs in Architecture and Planning to create a strong, robust and inter-related triad of graduate programs dealing with the built environment. The MLA is a three-year course-based program consisting of a foundation year plus two years at the Master’s level, and we will be seeking accreditation through the Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA).

The MLA Program at the University of Calgary is a member of the Landscape Architecture Accreditation Council (LAAC) Candidacy
program, which is specifically designed to allow the LAAC to work closely with the program to position it for a successful initial accreditation. Immediately following the graduation of our first cohort in the spring of 2018, we will be applying for accreditation.
Assuming that the review is successful, the program will be formally accredited, and this will be retroactive to all graduates of the first class from the spring of 2018. We are working closely with the LAAC to ensure that our curriculum addresses the requirements of accreditation, and anticipate a preliminary review visit in early 2017 to help us to prepare.

The program in EVDS is unique and distinctive:
-It is a program for the 21st Century and aims to sustainably address the critical issues facing settlements, societies and environments, using a landscape-based approach
-It emphasizes and builds on the faculty’s strengths in the areas of urban design, ecological design, regional planning, and cultural landscapes
-Our faculty emphasis on interdisciplinary is expressed through the overlapping relationships with the Master of Architecture and Master of Planning programs
-Our faculty structure, which allows a student to ladder from a course-based professional degree program to a thesis-based research degree (MEDes or PhD), facilitates the further development of creativity and innovative approaches to critical issues into the future
