This master’s program academically prepares the graduate to acquire the requisite work experience to gain eligibility towards the professional status of architect in Australia or overseas. Professional status is governed at the State level in Australia. Professional registration overseas is governed by the relevant professional authority.
This master’s program enables graduates to enter the architecture profession in a variety of careers including architectural firms, government, construction, development, infrastructure and planning industries both in Australia and around the world.
The strategic thinking, visual creativity, public engagement, design and technology skills, strategic management and entrepreneurial outlook developed in this degree also provides graduates with a wide range of career opportunities in the creative industries . Many architectural graduates establish careers in design studios, virtual design, web and graphic design, fashion, advertising, industrial design, arts management and the visual arts.
The Master of Architecture also prepares graduates for a pathway into higher education. The research dissertation offers a level of academic work in a student portfolio that is typically acceptable in applications for doctoral studies.
We practice what we teach
Architecture students will expand their skills within the landmark Abedian School of Architecture building. The building was designed by Sir Peter Cook and Gavin Robotham of internationally renowned firm Cook Robotham Architecture Bureau (London).
The unique design of the School provides an exceptional student learning experience. The concept of the building aims to foster collaboration at all levels from undergraduates to postgraduates where architectural students and academics can learn, create and exhibit in an open plan studio environment. The striking design of the building also acts as a teaching tool where theory comes to life, and will inspire innovation and creativity in students. The floating mezzanine, spiral stair cases, and internal ‘street’ are just some of the design features that will excite and stimulate a contemporary education space in which students, industry and the community can learn, gather, and exhibit.
Students will benefit from exclusive access to seven new design studios, computing and fabrication laboratories, a digital robotics laboratory, traditional workshops, reading and resource rooms, an atelier as well as impressive exhibition and event space. The School is one of a select number of architectural schools worldwide that incorporate architectural design through digital robotics, providing opportunities in design as part of the new generation of architecture.
The Abedian School of Architecture features one of the lowest student to staff ratio of any architectural program offered in Australia, ensuring unrivalled access to state of the art equipment, as well as personalised attention and mentoring.
The Australian Institute of Architects and the Board of Architects of Queensland currently recognise and accredit the Master of Architecture program. The Bachelor of Architectural Studies is recognised as the normal pathway to the Master of Architecture.
