Overview

Since landscape design role is getting more effectiveness and vital in the labour market of architecture and urban planning professions. Thus, the need to prepare well-qualified fellows who can deal with landscape different sites professionally is essential. Talent academy seized the opportunity to introduce the Landscape Design Course (LDC), in order to provide the labour market with well-qualified and educated fellows who are interested in landscape architecture.

 

Landscape design creates better quality of life for urban space users, also provides more comfortable paths and shades. Designing landscape can increase human comfort and productivity. Also, with landscape design the user can safe time to reach his destination. The main focus of the course is to produce an architect who is capable of designing an excellent design to reach maximum user benefit and achieve sustainability aims in landscape design.

 

With passing the course project evaluation, participants can look forward to career opportunities as a Landscape designer and coordinator, with a real chance to work in major independent professional offices or a major construction companies through practical talent engineering company which has gained in the last 15 years.
