The planet is changing. New technology is emerging. Architects are facing exciting challenges and creating amazing structures that are inspiring the cities of the future. How we live and work tomorrow will be very different to today. And architects are setting the direction. Architecture at QUT is increasingly being recognised internationally for its focus on innovation in design and sustainable development. Students will be inspired and empowered to create environments with a positive impact on human health, environmental quality, social relationships and urban systems. They will study sustainable systems and, in studio settings, undertake architectural design projects with a practical edge which will require them to think logically and creatively about how buildings function and are constructed. Upon graduation, students can progress onto a Master of Architecture and gain the required practical experience to become an architect.
