Bachelor of Design (Architecture)
Understand the built environment, ecosystem, and community to create meaningful and sustainable designs for everything from houses to skyscrapers – anywhere in the world.
With an eye for detail and a love of drawing, you’ll harness creativity with urban planning to make an impact with your designs.
Want to gain practical experience so that you’re work-ready by the time you graduate?
Discover architectural ideas through cutting-edge content and research with a global perspective. You’ll gain practical knowledge by studying real-world projects in a studio environment and develop your ability to generate, analyze, and communicate your own ideas.
The course integrates multiple creative and technical fields, as well as skill sets that examine and shape the places we inhabit, through all building types, spaces, and locations.
Your learning space will be second to none, with Deakin’s extensive a+b studio open 24/7 allowing you an open plan space to work collaboratively and develop your projects.
You will also have access to our brand-new workshop that offers you a place to fabricate models and experiment with technology, materials, and processes. The workshop is fully equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, and traditional tools and machinery.
Geelong Waterfront Campus
Located in the heart of Geelong, the Geelong Waterfront Campus has spectacular views of the bay. Used as wool stores in the 19th century, this campus has been renovated to create an impressive, modern space that offers an inspiring study environment. The unique mix of old and new allows for engaging and creative spaces, and its central location means students can visit Geelong’s central business district between classes. In 2019 a new ferry travelling between Melbourne and Geelong was launched. The ferry offers a comfortable and convenient mode of transport. It docks a short walk from the Geelong Waterfront Campus. Train and bus services are also regularly available between Geelong and Melbourne.
