Landscape Architects design with natural processes and built materials to improve the environment and the quality of all our lives. It is a profession that combines scientific and cultural understanding as well as vision and design creativity. Landscape architecture involves the planning, design and management of external space. It is a challenging discipline that draws on a wide range of skills. Landscape architects design regions, cities, neighbourhoods.... even gardens. They work alongside engineers, architects, ecologists and planners to shape the places we live, work and play in. As a profession it plays an important role in tackling climate change and protecting the environment.

UCD is at the forefront of Landscape Architecture education in Ireland. It is currently the only university in Ireland to offer an undergraduate degree in Landscape Architecture. This course is accredited by the Irish Landscape Institute and recognised internationally by IFLA, the global body for landscape architecture.
