The Bachelor of Arts in Architecture course offers a liberal arts and technical program for those with a special interest in architectural studies and provides the basis for a further postgraduate professional degree. Students have the advantage of learning from and contributing to Australia's National Capital Canberra, an internationally recognised model design city. The architecture program reflects the design ethos of the capital in its education profile with opportunities for study that complement Canberra as a laboratory for design invention. Students also use community and government projects as study vehicles, engage with public policy in environment and design and have access to international design connections and alliances. The course is characterised by project based design studio learning integrated with technical studies and research led teaching. History and theory themes related to landscape urbanism, cultural meaning in architecture and place making, modernism and urban policy and form underpin the course. Students engage in interdisciplinary and architecture specific studies and activities and are encouraged to participate in design discourse. The Bachelor of Arts in Architecture degree also offers a pathway for postgraduate studies in a range of other design disciplines taught at the University including interior architecture and digital design. There are also opportunities for cross-institutional study through the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) in digital representation, including CAD and REVIT, to be used as Level 1, 3 credit point elective study.

Despite her young age, Alex is already an award-winning leader in the field of building and construction management.
Alex won Young Innovator of the Year at the 2015 ACT Australian Information Industry Association's iAwards and the Outstanding Achievement in the Construction Industry Award in 2014 from the National Association of Women in Construction.
Alex is the co-inventor of the smartphone application SignOnSite, which enables workers to sign on and off a construction site using their smartphone and therefore be located easily in an emergency. The app has resulted in over $125,000 in government and business grants and prizes in recognition of its innovation and potential to save lives.
"I don't think I could have gotten into this career without my UC degree. I think that, particularly for women in construction, having a university degree behind you goes a long way."
