Course Description

The Bachelor of Architecture and Environments (BAE) provides a uniquely broad overview of the built environment through studies in design and architecture, urban planning, sustainability, heritage, building systems and construction and property.

You will develop a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between architects, urban planners, urban designers, heritage conservationists, property developers, engineers, construction managers and other built environment professionals. Our unique program opens the door to a wide range of professions in the field and provides the skills and knowledge to operate successfully in today's complex and globalised built environment.

Learn the latest techniques through intensive practical, laboratory and studio-based classes. The BAE draws on the full range of the faculty's disciplines and laboratories which include 3D laser cutting, digital fabrication and modelling facilities. Studies will also cover best practice construction techniques, structural principles and building material properties.

Core units are complemented by electives that allow you to deepen your knowledge within the faculty, or to explore the unrivalled breadth of study areas across the University of Sydney, and the degree culminates in a capstone design studio. Your studies will be informed by the innovative research of the academic staff and professional expertise of our visiting lecturers.
