About this program

You will receive a rounded professional architectural education with strength in design-research. You can choose to focus on sustainable design, urban design, history/theory or design practice. The research-based approach to architectural design in this degree will help you develop the capacity to pose original questions and to investigate, analyse and appraise current information and understandings. Research-led design will underpin career-long self-directed learning of a critical-reflective nature.

Attendance information

Attendance for all students is full-time mainly on campus, with some off-campus activities including: on-line delivery for aspects; integrated practice-learning; site and practice visits; and, elective national and international field studies.

My career opportunities

Our graduates have been employed in various architecture related organisations including private practice, consulting firms and in local and state government.
