    This course prepares students for the diversity of professional roles that graduates of architectural bachelor's degrees are likely to enter, and provides the skills required of the next generation of architects and built environment professionals. 

    You will learn the practice of architecture and its different contexts through an education that addresses the role of the architect with the full range of professional and business capabilities necessary to achieve successful development of property and infrastructure in a globalised and development-centred economy. 

    This degree maintains a core architectural design education and extends this to include urban design, planning and policy and architectural science – energy, light, construction and acoustics, services, heritage and the IT systems which underlay contemporary design and modelling. The understanding of this wider framework, and the full range of methodologies used to analyse and synthesise it, will add breadth to your immediate professional capabilities as well as preparing you for specialist career pathways offered by the school's full range of postgraduate course. These include direct entry to:

    • Master of Urban and Regional Planning
    • Master of Urban Design
    • Master of Architectural Science (with specialisations in Acoustics, High Performance Buildings, Illumination Design and Sustainable Design)
    • Master of Interaction Design and Electronic Arts and
