Master of Landscape Architecture and Engineering at Tulane University

The Master of Landscape Architecture and Engineering course at Tulane University combines both fields to offer students extensive knowledge in creating precise landscaping design solutions.

School: School of Architecture, Tulane University
Course: Master of Landscape Architecture and Engineering
Location: New Orleans, USA
Course dates: August 2025 to May 2028
Application deadline: 15 January 2025

The Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Science in River-Coastal Science and Engineering (MLAN-MS RCSE) is a one-of-a-kind dual degree that creates a new pathway for students interested in pursuing a career in landscape architecture and engineering, informed by both urban and architectural design and science and engineering.

The design studio, co-taught by professional engineers and landscape architects, is the academic vehicle in which the sciences, engineering and landscape architecture components are combined to solve site-specific problems.

Here iterative processes of trial and error are set in motion, looking for solutions for equations that not only include quantitative variables but also several qualitative spatial and formal variables.

Upon graduation, students will be able to assess urban and territorial scale challenges and develop projects aimed at transforming landscapes in a changing climate.

These projects will emphasize urban ecological principles at the intersection of urbanization and natural systems and a high degree of technical and scientific resolution.

Graduates will also be skilled in collaborating with fellow scientists, engineers and landscape architects, as well as various stakeholders in both natural and built environments.

As part of this interdisciplinary landscape architecture and engineering program, housed in a leading research university, students will advance pioneering design research and cutting-edge problem-solving within the built environment.
