What to expect

Bachelor of Design (Landscape Architecture)

In this course you will learn about landscape systems and to understand the complexity of landscape in relation to the creation of outdoor spaces with positive cultural and environmental impact.

Our landscape architecture course is relevant and informed by the latest research. You’ll work on real-world landscape design projects in practical studio settings and involving community participation.

We have a 50-year history as one of Australia’s principal landscape educators and our graduates are leading practitioners employed around the world.

Our graduates find careers independently, in small partnerships or as a member of large multidisciplinary teams with other professionals such as architects, engineers, urban designers and town planners. You may work in private practice or in government areas at local, state and federal levels.

You will be engaged primarily in site planning, site design, planting design and landscape planning. Careers include pathways to being an accredited landscape architecture, landscape designer, landscape technician, and landscape construction technician. Many graduates enjoy work in overseas practices.

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)

Study a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) and gain access to multimillion dollar research facilities, as well as learning practical solutions that impact on the real world.

With your combined landscape architecture and engineering skills you can work in private practice or in government at all levels, including roles such as structural engineer, geotechnical engineer, architect and environmental engineer.

Specialise and tailor your course to suit your own career aspirations. Study opportunities include student-led projects, international study tours, and access to multimillion dollar research facilities.

As part of this course, you must choose one of the following majors:

  • civil engineering
  • computer and software systems
  • electrical and aerospace engineering
  • electrical engineering
  • mechanical engineering
  • mechatronics
  • medical engineering
  • chemical process engineering.

Work Integrated Learning

Work Integrated Learning (WIL) is embedded in the curriculum and it is a core component for all engineering students. WIL allows you to graduate with a portfolio of professional skills that provides evidence of your professional competencies.

You are required to undertake 60 days of approved work experience in the engineering environment as part of your work integrated learning.

Careers and outcomes

Careers and outcomes
