Start your journey to becoming an architect with Queensland’s most in-demand architecture degree*. You’ll be taught by real-world architects working in the field, and complete up to 100 hours in a real architecture practice. Your degree will begin with introductory and shared impact lab units where, working with students from other disciplines, you’ll focus on problems and social issues and identify potential solutions connected to industry and community. Your introductory studies will also introduce you to visualisation skills and applications needed to formulate design as an exploration of the materials of the built environment. You’ll then build on these foundations and explore areas including environmental principles and the global movement of modern architecture with design studio units covering the process of design, dwelling, tectonics and public spaces. Later in your degree, you’ll transfer your skills and knowledge to a workplace or professional context and gain practical work experience through our work integrated learning program. At the end of your degree, you can progress onto our two-year Master of Architecture and continue your journey to becoming a registered architect in Australia and overseas.
