Career outcomes

"As a graduate working in architecture, it’s essential to understand the context within which a building is situated to fully realise its design potential. I work with engineers, consultants and historians and I think being able to empathise and collaborate with industry is one of the key things I learned." Ariani Anwar, Master of Architecture graduate, John Wardle Architects
