Study the Bachelor of Architecture and Future Environments, and learn to prepare and present building design projects of varying scales and complexity.
Architecture focuses on the relationship between people and their environments. Study architecture at AUT and gain an understanding of the critical, ethical, aesthetic, social cultural and technological components of architecture and the design of sustainable future environments.
You’ll develop a critical approach to architectural design, become familiar with architectural history and contemporary architecture practice, and learn to apply Te Aranga Maori design principles to your work.
To become a registered architect, you need a three-year bachelor’s degree, a two-year Master of Architecture (Professional) and two years (3,300 hours) of professional practice under the supervision of a registered practising architect.
Successful completion of the Bachelor of Architecture and Future Environments will enable students to apply for the Master of Architecture (Professional), which is designed to meet the competency requirements for professional registration as an architect in New Zealand and Australia.
Students who choose not to proceed to the Master of Architecture (Professional) can go into a range of other creative and design-based industries, related professions, public service organisations or other postgraduate studies.
All applicants need to meet AUT’s minimum entry requirements qualification equivalent to New Zealand year 13. They must have portfolio of art work.
