Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
The building industry needs engineering professionals with strong architectural knowledge. The combination of architectural design and civil engineering is an exploration of creative solutions to a wide variety of engineering and social problems, like looking at sustainable ways to build or renovate existing structures to work more efficiently. Students will graduate with valuable skills for transforming the built environment. The ability to provide solutions through creative thinking and realistic applications will make them attractive to architectural and engineering firms in Australia and overseas. As a multifaceted built environment professional, students can provide important leadership in the design and construction of the built environment, collaborating with architects, engineers, builders and other design professionals.
Students must complete 240 points of study, of which 144 points are from the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and 96 points from the Bachelor of Architectural Design. All students need to complete 420 hours of continuous professional development in order to graduate.
