Combined Degrees

Almost half of our students undertake a combined degree. That's because it gives you the opportunity to pursue more than one area of study and broaden your career options.

You can combine your engineering or IT degree with studies in architecture, arts, commerce, law, medical science or science.

Bachelor of Civil Engineering/Bachelor of Design in Architecture

This combined degree program offers you the opportunity to study both civil engineering and architectural design simultaneously over five years.

Your engineering studies will teach you to analyse the forces within a structure and to design its skeleton to support these forces, while your architectural studies will emphasise the conceptual and aesthetical aspects of the design process.

You'll acquire skills that will make you an asset to both the structural design and architectural professions.
