Summary

Why choose this course?

The planet is changing. New technology is emerging. Architects are facing exciting challenges and creating amazing structures that are inspiring the cities of the future. How we live and work tomorrow will be very different to today. And architects are setting the direction.

Our architecture course is increasingly being recognised internationally for its focus on innovation in design and sustainable development. You’ll be inspired and empowered to create environments with a positive impact on human health, environmental quality, social relationships and urban systems. You will study sustainable systems and undertake architectural design projects in practical studio settings.

Real-world learning

Throughout your degree, you will undertake architectural design projects with a practical edge which will require you to think logically and creatively about how buildings function and are constructed. You can broaden your mind, education and life experience with real-world field trips, international study tours, and student exchange with partners all over the world including Italy, Canada, France, China, Hungary, Colombia, Mexico, USA, UK and more.

What to expect

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.
