The Master of Architecture combined with the Master of Urban Design creates professionals who can design buildings, public and private spaces with an understanding of the city within the context of social, environmental and economic concerns.
The program aims to provide you with:
You will undertake a sequence of intensive design studios culminating in a research thesis. In the studios, students cover architectural design in the context of the creative invention of architectural futures, integrating aesthetic, technological, programmatic, environmental and social issues in the production of buildings and spaces.
By combining the Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Design as a double degree, our students complete two professionally accredited graduate programs in a reduced timeframe. This gives them a true competitive advantage and broader career options. Dual accreditation also offers a distinctive signal to employers and industry and enhances our existing graduate reputation for strong leadership and strategic thinking skills, embedded in our expertise in providing a world-class built environment education influencing Melbourne and cities globally for over 150 years.
The Master of Architecture combined with the Master of Urban Design puts theory into practice via our suite of studios. Studios emphasise the importance of place and fieldwork in design and studio projects are approached as speculative design-research explorations, where innovation and discovery are combined with advanced geospatial analytics, multidimensional and procedural modelling, and virtual reality technology.
Professional and community involvement play an integral role in our studio experiences. Studio topics draw on the current projects of our research staff, while also involving architects, designers, engineers, policy makers, urban designers and planners from nearly 50 organisations. The collaborative nature of studio classes mirrors the way you will work in industry.
With over 30 full-time academics and a broad range of leading built environment practitioners, our programs have a depth and breadth of teaching and research performance unmatched within the Southeast-Asian and Australasian regions. Graduates will be equipped with the creative and critical thinking skills to push the envelope of architectural and urban design change in terms of the design and production of buildings and urban environments as well as critique of their technical, aesthetic, social and environmental performance.
