How our vertical double degree works
Step 1: The Bachelor of Architectural Design is the first stage on your journey to be an architect.
This stage will provide you with the foundation skills and knowledge in design where you’ll learn how to use the architectural processes of investigation and experimentation to explore materials, space and unexpected environments.
We’ll teach you how to use computer-aided drafting (CAD) software and develop CAD modelling and drawing skills in both two and three dimensions.
Step 2: Graduates from our Bachelor of Architectural Design are guaranteed entry for the Master of Architecture, which is the key to meeting the academic requirements which lead to registration as an architect.
In stage two you will undertake high-level study in specialised areas of architecture, from housing and urban design to digital practices. Through project based design studios you will gain exposure to leading design practices.
Registered Architect working across scales from homes to housing complexes, public facilities to entertainment precincts and urban design of cities.
Ability to become specialists in heritage buildings, sustainable design or disaster relief. Opportunities in government as policy advisors, project management, property or community development.
Graduates can branch out further to architectural writer, game and set designers, designing building components and other jobs which contribute to shaping the built environment.
