About Architecture

Architects combine creative vision, innovation, technological understanding and architectural theory to shape how we live, work and play in our built environment.

At Melbourne, you'll learn to use sophisticated digital capabilities to solve problems in an age of environmental change, rapid urbanisation and global flows of people, materials and assets.

You'll leverage technology to represent environments in 2D and 3D, develop expertise in structural and material systems as well as building science and environmental systems, and gain a deep appreciation for design history.

Along with lectures and tutorials, you’ll put your learning into practice in design studio classes. You’ll attend site visits and spend time in the fabrication workshop and research library, where ideas, skills and knowledge can be learned, shared, debated and tested.
