Meet Bachelor of Design (Architecture and Construction) student, Briean Ranchhod

“I chose the Bachelor of Design as I wasn’t one hundred per cent sure about architecture, but was passionate about it and knew it was something I wanted to pursue. I majored in architecture and construction. This was quite different to what I expected to major in when I first started in the course, but they go hand in hand which is perfect now that I am working in the industry.”
