Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Civil) and Bachelor of Design in Architecture

Five years full-time
UAC code: 511762

This combined degree 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 aesthetic aspects of the design process.

The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Civil) and Bachelor of Design in Architecture is a combined degree that caters for the emerging need for professionals who can work across architectural and structural engineering design. The Bachelor of Design in Architecture can only be combined with the Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Civil) award.

You will study conceptual and aesthetic aspects of the design process in architectural studies, while learning about planning, designing and testing structures within the built environment. This overarching course of study will provide you with a holistic approach to the design of our built environment and with skills that will encourage greater diversity and ingenuity in the design and construction of our buildings.

This combined degree is distinct from the "Architectural Engineering" degrees offered at other universities, nationally and internationally, in that graduates will receive Bachelor degrees in both Engineering and Design in Architecture. The combined degree, therefore, provides pathways to both professions.
