Landscape Architecture 
Landscape Architecture major is originated from "green city and residential  afforest areas major",which is established in 1958. The Landscape Research Group was established in 1980, and it recruited students in the country. It is one of the Landscape Architecture majors which were the earliest institutions of higher learning history, had the overall strength and had the social impact. It is a multi-level (undergraduate, master's, Dr) Education base for talents of garden.
Landscape majors adhere to the reform of education and teaching .We commit to major construction effectively. In 2002 undergraduate landscape were identified as building point in characteristics of Nanjing Forestry University, and in 2003 in Jiangsu Province Department of Education determined it to the building point in characteristics of undergraduate major in Jiangsu Province. In 2005 Jiangsu Education Office identified it as the characteristic major for undergraduate in Jiangsu Province. It was also identified as the first state-level building point at colleges and universities in characteristics of major in 2008.
We consist accurate positioning and distinct features for personnel training. People who have cross-knowledge of natural science, humanities and engineering are the training target for Landscape Architecture , mastering landscape design, landscape construction and management, garden planting and application and having a sense of innovation.
The main research directions of Landscape Architecture: (1) city's ecological environment planning and theory: It focuses on urban ecosystems and ecological planning; scenic areas, nature reserves planning theory; scenic resources monitoring, environmental evaluation and the application of garden 3S technology. (2) Landscape planning design and theory: It focuses on the law of interaction between urban green space and the urban environment, dedicates to urban green space planning, landscape architecture, engineering theory and practice, as well as garden plants cultivation and management and the use of garden plants resources. (3) Garden plants and ornamental horticulture.
Landscape Architecture focuses on teaching quality and innovation of educational model. In the past five years we took one of the second prizes in outstanding teaching outcome at the national level, two of the first prizes in outstanding teaching outcome in Jiangsu Province, one of the teams of excellent teaching in Jiangsu Province, one of  national quality courses, three of quality courses in Jiangsu Province, and eight awards in the preparation of materials. "the series of teaching materials about garden " prepared by teachers took the second prize in" the seventh outstanding academic materials of East China University publishing company".

City Planning 
City Planning of Urban Planning and Design Department is based on Architecture and Landscape, which is to meet the needs of the modernization of socialism, with comprehensive development in moral, intellectual, physical, and artistic. The talents should be able to adapt to work in urban planning and design, urban planning, real estate development and other departments for urban planning, design, management, urban road planning, urban municipal project planning, urban ecological planning, scenic spots planning, and take part in social and economic development, regional planning studies, real estate development and related policies and regulations with a good professional attainment and quality, a strong competence of organization and coordination as well.
Core courses of City Planning for undergraduate include: master urban design and planning, detailed planning of urban design, urban and regional system planning, building design, urban roads and traffic planning, landscape architecture planning and design, scenic spots planning, urban ecology and environmental protection, urban municipal project planning and so on. It emphasize practice ,colligation and integration in city planning and set adequate practice taches such as color practice, urban design practice, master urban planning practice, integrated urban planning practice, social survey and graduation design.

Department of Architectural Design in Landscape

A. Major

Architectural Design (professional code: 080708W)and landscape engineering direction. It belongs to the engineering/architecture and the degree awarded to engineering classes. The limit of studying at school is 4 years. Face national recruitment of students.

Main research direction:

The landscape architectural design specialized is mainly engaged in the landscape construction, the landscape project and the landscape design history, the fundamental research at present. Including:

(1)  Landscape architectural design and fundamental research direction. Studies general theory, the method, the appliance, the history as well as the development direction of the landscape architectural design. This discipline is an emerging discipline and the design domain multi-disciplinary overlapping co-prosperity has become an inevitable trend. The landscape architecture which takes constructs, the botanical garden, the plan as the research theory support, explores many subjects in the field of design.

(2)  The landscape engineering research direction.  This direction devotes for a long time to the questions on the green way to solute landscape project .

Focus on:

1) Road construction project landscape and ecological protection technology.

(2) Landscape ecological protection projects, ecological drainage, rain water retention and irrigation techniques.

(3)Water features and landscape lighting engineering and technology based on energy saving and environmental protection.

(4), Zhang Yuan, “the even ban hillock” hill-stack technology and its innovative applications.。
