Master of Architecture/Master of Urban Planning

  • CRICOS code: 105516K


Students undertake a sequence of intensive design studios culminating in a research thesis. In the studios, students cover architectural design in the context of the creative invention of architectural futures, integrating aesthetic, technological, programmatic, environmental and social issues in the production of buildings. Students can also take elective subjects in areas such as digital architecture, production, practice and sustainability, and society and culture.

There is also a focus on Australian and international policy and planning pertaining to human settlements and how we cope with challenging population and environmental issues. Because practicing planners work closely with other disciplines, this interdisciplinary approach to teaching will prepare you to work effectively and collaboratively in industry.

Marissa Wong

“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.
