Bachelor of Design - Architecture

Deakin University

The Bachelor of Design (Architecture) engages with the rich and diverse discipline of architecture. As the undergraduate portion of an accredited programme the course prepares the foundation for further study whilst developing your skills to create meaningful, sustainable and stimulating built environments. The course integrates multiple creative and technical fields as well as skillsets that examine and shape the places we inhabit, through all building types, spaces and locations. You'll explore architectural ideas through cutting edge content, research and a global perspective - gaining practical knowledge studying real-world projects and developing your ability to generate, analyse and communicate your own ideas. You will produce design concepts whilst being challenged to explore architectural history and philosophy, building science and the environment, construction technologies, computer-aided modelling, drawing, model making and digital fabrications. This course is the ideal pathway for application to Deakin's Master of Architecture for those interested in seeking employment or becoming a qualified architect. Graduates are also well-prepared for employment in private architectural practice, with government organisations or private companies in property development, building and design.
