Summary

Be a multifaceted built environment professional with this double degree in engineering and architectural design double degree. You'll provide important leadership in the design and construction of the built environment, collaborating with architects, engineers, builders and other design professionals.

The building industry needs engineering professionals with strong architectural knowledge.

The combination of architectural design with civil engineering is an exploration of creative solutions to a wide variety of engineering and social problems, like looking at sustainable ways to build or renovating existing structures to work more efficiently.

You will graduate with valuable skills for transforming the built environment, from the design of buildings or bridges to renovating existing structures to work more efficiently. The ability to provide solutions through creative thinking and realistic applications will make you attractive to architectural and engineering firms in Australia and overseas.

This course leads to two separate degrees:

Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours),
Bachelor of Architectural Design.

You will gain all the benefits of each degree course and be fully equipped to pursue a career in either or both in combination.

In architectural design part of your studies you spend more than half of your degree participating in studio learning, guided by industry experts, practising architects and/or academics. You'll collaborate with your peers in small groups to develop responses to a wide range of social and spatial issues. Studio learning replicates the way many architectural and design practices operate.

For your architectural studies there is no need to have previously studied any design subjects as our first year has been developed to ensure all students gain the necessary foundation skills in freehand and computer-aided drawing to be successful in the degree and in architectural practice.

Monash hosts some of the world's most advanced engineering facilities, including the largest wind tunnel in the southern hemisphere, a next-generation immersive hybrid 2D and 3D virtual reality environment, and one of the world's most powerful electron microscopes.

Upon completion of the double degree, you will be a qualified engineer. With a Master of Architecture degree, you can also become a registered architect.
