Offering an internationally recognised qualification, graduates eager to explore a diverse career in the built environment industry can work in Australia or overseas, in more than 50 countries.

The Bachelor of Design (Architecture)/Bachelor of Construction Management (Honours) offers an excellent mix of hands-on practice and theory, so that you graduate job ready. You’ll learn about:

  • architectural history, theory and design

By studying a combined course in architecture and construction management you will gain a far greater understanding of the types of career paths available to you. It will also allow you to better recognise the mindset and drivers of an architect or construction manager when working all together in industry.

With the design (architecture) component of this course, you’ll get a chance to develop your design and communication skills, with a focus on innovation and sustainability.

The construction management component will give you the skills to manage small-to-large projects that need knowledge across construction technology and processes, resource management, law, information technology, environmental management and construction economics.

As well as all this, your learning space will be second to none, with Deakin’s extensive a+b studio open 24/7 allowing you an open plan space to work collaboratively and develop your projects.

You will also have access to our workshop that offers you a place to fabricate models and experiment with technology, materials and processes. The workshop is fully equipped with 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, traditional tools and machinery.
