Course Overview

Deakin's Bachelor of Design (Architecture) allows you to explore the design of our physical environments, including residential, commercial and industrial. You will focus on architectural ideas, innovative real-world projects and building science. In addition to exploring architectural history and philosophy, you will create design concepts that are meaningful, sustainable and stimulating. The School of Architecture and Built Environment has undergone major refurbishment, resulting in an inspiring learning space. The a+b studio and workshop provides students, academics and researchers with a place to fabricate models, encouraging experimentation with technology, materials and processes. These interdisciplinary spaces provide access to a variety of digital tools with the open plan studio design facilitating collaboration on projects.

Deakin University's Bachelor of Design (Architecture) is accredited by the Board of Architects Malaysia (Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia) and (within Australia) by the Australian Institute of Architects, the Architects Registration Board of Victoria (ARBV) and the Architects Accreditation Council of Australia (AACA).
