About

The Building Design  at Victoria University helps you develop an independent and creative approach to building design and learn about the cultural, social, technical and sustainable issues that are associated with the built environment. 

Overview

About Building Design  at Victoria University

As a student in the Bachelor of Building Design, you’ll use innovative processes and practices of an architectural design studio to solve problems creatively, and determine solutions for a better future. Modern computer labs, design studios, site visits and interaction with industry practitioners will take you into 'real life' situations with industry briefs.

In this three-year Bachelor of Building Design degree, offered at Victoria University, you will study and develop skills in:

  • building design (architectural)
  • building legislation and auditing
  • building codes
  • environmentally sustainable construction techniques and materials
  • building services
  • professional practice and communication.

These skills will prepare you as a confident and capable building industry professional. You will also take classes alongside students from building design, construction management, building surveying and engineering programs. By studying in multidisciplinary teams in a studio-based learning environment you will work with allied professions in the building industry right from the beginning of your studies.

Careers

As key professionals in the building design and construction industry, graduates will work closely with other professional disciplines, industry groups and development authorities.

Graduates will have a wide range of employment opportunities and can work in both the private and public sectors for employers such as architects, building proprietors contractors, developers, engineers, government bodies, consultancy practices and corporations with large building portfolios or be self-employed entrepreneurs.
