The experience


Clubs and Societies

Students of the Melbourne School of Design can connect to industry through their studies as well as through student-run Clubs and Societies. These clubs and societies host events throughout the year connecting industry representatives and alum with current students. It’s also a great opportunity to meet your peers and get leadership experience during your studies.

Makers Spaces

The Melbourne School of Design is home to collaborative Makers Spaces allowing our students to access a wide array of tools, services and equipment with staff supervision and guidance. Spaces like the FabLab offer laser cutting, CNC milling and 3D printing and our NExT Lab houses cutting edge technologies such as 3D scanning and Virtual Reality (VR).

Connect with us from anywhere in the world:

Connect with other students in Australia and overseas with the Study Melbourne Hubs: bringing the Melbourne study experience to you.

You can access events and services with other students in Australia, China, Vietnam, Malaysia and virtually in India so no matter where you are in the world, you’ll be connected to the University of Melbourne and other students.

Rob Snelling

“I was drawn to the Master of Architectural Engineering as I wanted to foster a diversity of mindsets and approaches to then address critical sustainability issues in the built environment. My focus at the moment is to develop a breadth of skills, to then allow me to pivot to the issues that I think need attention. However, there will always be some key principles underpinning my career, notably sustainability, community, technology and urbanism.
My advice to students considering the Master of Architectural Engineering is to take advantage of the diversity of skillsets you have and the unique skills that both architecture and engineering provide. Earlier this year I was one of ten students selected to take part in a Norman Foster Foundation Workshop in Madrid. Each of the participants in the workshop were selected for different reasons: whether that be having more ‘on the ground’ experience, strong data skills or human-centred design backgrounds. I would say that my key contribution was having an interdisciplinary background and being able to oscillate between these different ways of thinking, thereby helping our team bring these diverse views together. Through the degree, I’ve more and more realised the value of this skill.” Rob Snelling. Master of Architectural Engineering student.
