From Bauhaus to brutalism, suburbia to skyscrapers; architecture is more than just buildings. Concerned with both form and space, process and performance, mass and light, perception and comfort, Architecture shapes the ways we live and connect.
Throughout a Bachelor of Design (Architecture) at Swinburne, you'll study a range of concepts and skillsets under the guidance of world-renowned academics in a variety of settings, from classrooms to workshops and design studios.
Across three years – and through units in design, construction, cultural contexts and more – you will master the software used in cutting-edge firms, retrace the history of the craft, get hands-on experience with industry partnerships and placements, and work with innovative and sustainable building materials that are changing the world.
With access to Swinburne’s ProtoLAB, a state-of-the-art digital fabrication and design workshop equipped with 3D printers, collaborative robots and laser cutters, you’ll have all the tools at hand to become a designer of the future.
You'll build up your CV with real industry experience while you study through our Work Integrated Learning programs, which are a guaranteed part of all our bachelor degrees and can include placements, internships or industry-linked projects. In this degree, in units Architectural Design Studio 5 and Professional Practice 1: BIM (ARC3002 and ARC30004), you’ll collaborate with and learn from industry specialists.
