Architecture

Enhance lives by creating dwellings, buildings, landscape spaces and/or major structures that deliver function, beauty and sustainability.

State-of-the-art technology

Studying architecture, landscape architecture or construction management at the University of Adelaide will ensure you're highly proficient in the use of all critical technologies driving those industries. The cutting-edge facilities you'll have access to include:

  • computer-aided architectural design (CAAD) studios
  • a model-making laboratory with laser and foam cutters
  • 3D scanners/digitisers and modelling systems
  • BIM (building information modelling)
  • 3D printers.

Quality defined by experience

Many forms of 'experience' will come together during your time with us to ensure that you gain an education - and contemporary, real-world skills - of the highest calibre.

  • You'll learn from practising, highly experienced and award-winning industry professionals.
  • Your teachers themselves will draw from - and pass on to you - educational insights gained from our proud history of 60-plus years of experience in architectural training.
  • You will travel interstate and overseas as part of your degree to observe and study outstanding structures first-hand**.
  • And you'll have multiple opportunities throughout your studies to hone your developing skills on real-world projects, including through industry internships.

Career prospects

Employment growth for architects, landscape architects, construction managers and architectural engineers ranges from strong to very strong.

Please note, however, that if you aspire to become a registered architect or landscape architect, you'll need to complete additional postgraduate study. Our Master of Architecture and Master of Landscape Architecture satisfy this requirement.
