Learn about the design of our physical environments, from residential and cultural through to commercial and industrial. From day one, you'll learn with a global perspective and by ‘doing’, including building models, studying professional architects’ projects and learning drawing and digital design.

My passion towards uncovering methods to contribute to human well-being led me to choose architecture as an academic major.
