About this course

Your degree will begin with introductory and shared impact lab units where, working with students from other disciplines, you’ll focus on problems and social issues and identify potential solutions connected to industry and community. Your introductory studies will also introduce you to visualisation skills and applications needed to formulate design as an exploration of the materials of the built environment.

Your studies will then build on these foundations and explore areas including environmental principles and the global movement of modern architecture with design studio units covering the process of design, dwelling, tectonics and public spaces.

Later in your degree you will be able to transfer skills and knowledge to a workplace or professional context and gain practical work experience with work integrated learning.

Double degrees

Combine your architecture degree with a second degree to gain a broader range of skills and knowledge, a competitive advantage and enhanced career flexibility. Choose a double degree with:

  • business to lead to careers intersecting design with marketing, public relations, advertising, international business, economics, management and human resource management.
  • engineering to enable a range of opportunities including careers in architecture, project management, property development, construction, civil engineering and urban design.
  • property economics to combine your design skills with sound economic intelligence is highly valued and use your ability to research, develop, value and design property for investment in both commercial and government sectors.
  • construction management to become a valuable architect and project manager in the building industry.
