Master of Urban Design Awards

Since the M.U.D. Program's inception in 2001, its students and alumni have been leaders or members of award-winning urban design teams and have written for books and journals.

This work often grows directly from design and research begun in the program and strongly positions them in both the professional and academic spheres.
