Architecture & Design discussion

Overview

Architects deal with a broad range of issues. Consequently, the study of architecture covers a broad range of disciplines and skills.

The Bachelor of Environmental Design prepares all graduates for an increasingly design research driven practice with a focus on environmentally sustainable design within each specialisation.

The Bachelor of Environmental Design (Architecture) is primarily a pre-professional course and thus aims to produce graduates whose creative abilities are developed to a level of competence necessary to gain admission to the Bachelor of Environmental Design with Honours, Master of Architecture or Master of Architecture with Honours, and equivalent courses in the fields of architecture, urban design and related design areas.

The Bachelor of Environmental Design (Furniture Design) prepares graduates for practice as furniture designers either independently or within furniture or multidisciplinary design practices. This requires that they have both generalised and specialised knowledge in design, making, manufacture and professional and business practice. The course aims to develop students' creative and research abilities to a level necessary to gain admission to the Bachelor of Environmental Design with Honours.

The Bachelor of Environmental Design (Interior Design) prepares graduates for interior design practice as independent designers, within interior design practices or in multidisciplinary architecture and design practices. The focus of the course is on commercial, retail, residential and public interiors. The course aims to develop students' creative abilities to a level sufficient to gain admission to the Bachelor of Environmental Design with Honours (Interior Design).

The Bachelor of Environmental Design (Landscape) is a pre-professional course, preparing graduates with knowledge and training in the creative, physical, ethical, environmental and social components of design. The course aims to develop students' creative and research abilities to a level necessary to gain admission to a two-year Masters program in Landscape Architecture.
