Summary

The Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) at the Abedian School of Architecture is designed to create emerging architectural professionals with fundamental competencies in design ability, problem solving, technical skill, and theoretical frameworks that give graduates the capability to address complex problems of the built and natural environment in the 21st century and beyond. Professional architectural concerns of detailing, documentation, and basic practice concepts are delivered to establish a foundational basis for the commercial world of architectural practice. The Bachelor of Architectural Studies developed by the Abedian School of Architecture places emphasis on developing students that are experienced in innovative technologies and are adventurous in their creative design.

This program recognises the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures in a globalised world where there are modernising threats to traditional cultures, complexities in generating sustainable environments and constant change in technological aspects of modern life. Public engagement is fostered through an annual lecture series that highlights the work and ideas of national and international practitioners and academics; special exhibitions of work; and various forms of publication and dissemination. This degree provides the pathway for a career as a professional architect. Graduates of this program may progress to the Master of Architecture upon application and review of undergraduate performance. Completion of the Bachelor of Architectural Studies does not qualify for automatic entry to the Masters.

This degree prepares graduates with theoretical and practical experience relating to design, problem solving, construction and communication that can be applied to a wide range of careers.

Many architectural graduates establish careers in design studios, virtual environment design (such as gaming, cinema and animation), web and graphic design, fashion, advertising, industrial design, arts management and the visual arts.
