The Bachelor of Architecture and Built Environments engages students in a series of creative design projects that explore a future where social responsibility and environmental sustainability are key elements in the design and making of new buildings, places and spaces.

You will develop innovative approaches, critical thinking, and the creative skills to respond to the challenging issues facing society and will learn to push the boundaries of architectural and design practice.

The course is underpinned by substantial design studio and workshop components, integrated with studies in relevant histories and theories, building technologies, professional studies and design communication.
