Melbourne Polytechnic's Bachelor of the Built Environment was developed following rigorous consultation with industry stakeholders and benchmarking with comparative courses within Australia to ensure that students have essential skills as required by architects at the undergraduate level. Build your future with Melbourne Polytechnic.

Course Description

The Bachelor of the Built Environment was accredited in late 2013, with the Tertiary Education Quality Standards Agency (T.E.Q.S.A.).

Course design includes input from a range of stakeholders including architectural and construction firms, ensuring theoretical and practical coverage.

The Bachelor of the Built Environment is aligned to the recommendations of the Australian Institute of Architects Standards for Undergraduate Programs in Architecture. From this Degree you will:

  • Have advanced technical skills and a substantial knowledge base including design principles and theories relating to the practice of architecture
  • Be able to create innovate design solutions that respond effectively to client briefs, sustainable principles and that are sympathetic to the surrounding natural and built environments
  • Have the knowledge to articulate appropriate construction techniques, materials and building services into design solutions mindful of embodied energy
  • Be able to problem-solve using a variety of techniques and tools in order to synthesise and apply knowledge to a range of planning and design tasks of varying size and complexity

Articulation

The Bachelor of the Built Environment has been designed to enable students to articulate from the Advanced Diploma of Building Design (Architectural) (22268VIC) and receive the equivalent of 11 subject credits (approximately three semesters).

All prospective students will be required to submit a folio of work and attend an interview.
