The Bachelor of Architectural Technology is a unique offering from Deakin University’s School of Architecture and Built Environment and The Gordon’s Advanced Design and Building department.
The course is designed to provide you with practical skills as well as theoretical knowledge. Your studies at The Gordon will provide you with a combination of theory and hands-on skills, including field trips and your final year at Deakin will enhance your studies with a focus on theoretical learning. This blend of knowledge will help you, as a graduate, play a pivotal role in the construction phase of project delivery in collaboration with other professional disciplines in the built environment sector.
As a graduate of the Bachelor of Architectural Technology, you will be a professionally qualified architectural technologist. You will have developed diverse and practical skills, giving you the capability to be involved in commercial, industrial or domestic projects covering the full scope of construction, from new work, renovations and alterations to fit out, refurbishment and retrofit.
This is a 24-credit-point course studied concurrently through Deakin and The Gordon in East Geelong. Ten credit points of university studies are undertaken at Deakin concurrently with the equivalent of 14 credit points at The Gordon. You will commence your first year studies at The Gordon in February. Under normal, full-time progression, second year studies are undertaken concurrently at The Gordon and Deakin, and third year studies are undertaken at Deakin. As the course is delivered by two institutions, start and end dates for study periods will vary. Please expect classes to commence early February.
Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
Fees for the three year Program will be administered under the following arrangements:
- The Gordon will invoice students for the annual course fee for the Gordon Units (the fee will include the costs of excursions, materials and equipment required by students in the Gordon Units);
- No fee is payable to Deakin University
Architectural technology is an expanding field in Australia with an established profile internationally. As a graduate of the Bachelor of Architectural Technology, you may find challenging and exciting career opportunities nationally and overseas, including in architectural practices, property development companies, domestic and commercial design and construction organisations and allied fields, as well as with industry associations and government authorities.
You could also find career opportunities in research, manufacturing, academia and government ministerial departments.
