Details

The Master of Architecture enables development of advanced understanding in architectural design and research, contextual studies, technology and science, and studies for professional practice.

The moral and ethical purpose of architectural practice is to serve communities through practitioner engagement with designing, promoting and overseeing the procurement of built environments that sustain and celebrate human occupation.

A focus on sustainable systems and the application of advanced digital design tools to address sustainability is driving the architectural curriculum at QUT.

Career outcomes

Graduates of the Master of Architecture meet the academic requirements for membership of the Australian Institute of Architects. Graduates who have also completed two years of practical architectural experience, of which at least one year is postgraduate architectural experience, will be eligible to undertake the Architectural Practice Examination, which will enable the graduate, if successful, to be eligible for registration with any Board of Architects in Australia.
