AASA - Providing leadership and advocacy for architectural education in Australasia

RMIT University

School of Architecture and Design

As a multidisciplinary design school, the School of Architecture and Design understands design practice as an agent of cultural change within an increasingly complex and cosmopolitan world.

In our School, we offer programs ranging from certificates through to PhDs. We aim to address compelling, contemporary issues, like climate change, globalisation and rapid urbanisation, in ways that help drive cultural change through design. Our students, lecturers and researchers are all encouraged to be risk-takers as they strive towards positive change.

Globally recognised for design excellence, our School rated ‘well above world standard’ in the Australian Research Council 2012 Excellence in Research in Australia (ERA) audit, achieving the highest possible ranking of 5. We develop our research through the process of designing, and put designs and ideas into practice.
