Why choose architecture?
Architecture is a creative and exciting profession that combines technology, ecology, philosophy, art and science to solve the problems of the built environment. The buildings we live and work in shape our experiences, our memories and the way we view the world. It is the role of the architect to analyse a client's needs and to design a building, which fulfils these needs.
Why study with us?
The school's degree program has repeatedly been described as one of the country's best and is committed to providing inclusive and practice oriented programs that are well-grounded and celebrate the craft of architecture in response to the natural environment. Our graduates are highly sought after by architecture practices within Australia and throughout the world.
What will I study?
The course is structured around a required set of core units with the studio teaching at its heart, delivered through a mixture of problem-based learning and design studio tutoring. The design projects emphasise place, people and process with emphasis on creative, social, cultural and ecological issues relating to urbanism, landscape and the built environment. Students learn essential skills and knowledge in the areas of construction technology, construction ecology, communication, computing, and the history and theory of architecture.
The Bachelor of Design (Architecture) may be awarded as an ordinary degree or with merit, and is a pre-professional qualification. For registration as an architect, students must complete the two-year Master of Architecture program. The Master of Architecture is recognised by the State Boards of Architects, the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia, the Royal Australian Institute of Architects and the Royal Institute of British Architects.
There is a diverse and exciting range of career opportunities for architecture graduates. Graduates have the option to proceed to the Master of Architecture or pursue a variety of paraprofessional careers such as technicians, drafters, managers and designers in public and private architectural practices, and associated industries. Other Opportunities include careers in town planning, construction, project management, property development, overseas aid, infrastructure planning, research, restoration and conservation.
