Bachelor of Building Design

Develop an independent and creative approach to building design and learn about the cultural, social, technical and sustainable issues that are associated with the built environment.

As a student in the new Bachelor of Building Design, you’ll use innovative processes and practices of an architectural design studio to solve problems creatively, and determine solutions for a better future. Modern computer labs, design studios, site visits and interaction with industry practitioners will take you into 'real life' situations with industry briefs.

In this three-year Bachelor of Building Design degree, you will study and develop skills in:

  • building design (architectural)
  • building legislation and auditing
  • building codes
  • environmentally sustainable construction techniques and materials
  • building services
  • professional practice and communication.

These skills will prepare you as a confident and capable building industry professional. You will also take classes alongside students from building design, construction management, building surveying and engineering programs. By studying in multidisciplinary teams in a studio-based learning environment you will work with allied professions in the building industry right from the beginning of your studies.
