I am new to the forums and I have been thinking of a career in urban planning and I wanted to get some advice. First a little about me, I am a few years out of college where I got a BA in physics. I have a strong interest in renewable energy and sustainable living, and I initially thought I would do R&D in renewable energy, but I am thinking that is not for me. Therefore, I was thinking of going into urban planning to help create a more sustainable city and lifestyle. In brief, what is the nature of the work? I would imagine its a lot of collaboration with engineers, officials, etc., is that an accurate guess? What type of person would work well in this field? What would you suggest to someone in my position looking to possibly get into the field? What are the negative aspects of this type of career? Any advice is greatly appreciated, thanks!
