Program Overview

Help design better communities

Cities need designers who understand the built environment. This eight-month graduate certificate responds to that demand, teaching you to design inclusive and sustainable solutions that connect and integrate urban landscapes. Sheridan is one of the few colleges in Canada to offer this niche training, which is traditionally taught in master's level studies.

Real-world inspiration and learning

Our state-of-the-art Hazel McCallion Campus is a living lab for urban designers, surrounded by new development in the heart of Mississauga. Be inspired by the blank canvas of opportunity around you or make the short trip to Toronto to generate more ideas. You'll also have the chance to propose real-world solutions during a field placement with an urban design firm or industry partner.

Learn from urban design experts

Sheridan is well-known as a leader in design education. Learn from professors who have strong academic backgrounds and extensive industry experience in built environments. They'll teach you how to apply software skills to create visualizations of urban environments. You'll also study concepts of mobility, wayfinding, placemaking, ecology and more.
