Master of Architecture/Master of Construction Management
- CRICOS Code: 105512C
What will I study?
With over thirty full-time academics and a broad range of leading architectural practitioners, the Architecture program has a depth and breadth of teaching and research performance unmatched within the Southeast-Asian and Australasian regions. Graduates will be equipped with the creative and critical thinking skills to push the envelope of architectural change in terms of the design and production of buildings as well as critique of their technical, aesthetic, social and environmental performance. The ethos of the program emphasises the central role of design in the studio. Students can take a research subject which may enable progression to further studies as a PhD candidate.
Simultaneously, you will study several core and elective subjects as a construction management student, enabling you to focus on a chosen area of construction management specialisation. Regardless of whether you are starting your career in construction or coming from industry to further develop your expertise, you will find a specialisation that suits your career aspirations.
The Master of Architecture combined with the Master of Construction Management puts theory into practice via our suite of studios. Our studios develop strong interdisciplinary understanding, excellent communication skills, critical thinking and the ability to use resources, materials and technologies to develop responsible and ecologically sound and novel design solutions.
Professional and community involvement play an integral role in our studio experiences. Studio topics draw on the current project of our research staff, while also involving landscape architects, designers, engineers, policy makers, urban designers and planners from nearly 50 organisations. The collaborative nature of studio classes mirrors the way you will work in industry.
Our researchers, teaching staff and students are actively engaged with some of the pressing issues of our time, including dealing with the impact of climate changes, sustainable resourcing challenges, and the pressures of increased urbanisation.
“I want to start my own practice or join a practice, so being able to specialise in certain areas through studio selection and thesis work is valuable. The degree allows me to be in touch with relevant tools and practices which will give me a broader knowledge and awareness of global issues regarding the built environment as well as the development of design thinking and research skills.” Marissa Wong. Master of Architecture student.
