AASA - Providing leadership and advocacy for architectural education in Australasia

University of Sydney

Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning

Our three undergraduate programs have the highest requirements of any program of their kind in Australia. The Bachelor of Design in Architecture, the Bachelor of Architecture and Environments and the Bachelor of Design Computing require an Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank within the top 10% of the state for entry. Congratulations to those who have gained entry into those programs and will be joining us. We look forward to sharing your passion for and commitment to design excellence.

At a postgraduate level we have the widest range of programs of any similar faculty in the country. The Design Science program, the only one offered in Australia, sees our students specialising in Audio and Acoustics, Building, Building Services, Illumination Design and Sustainable Design, or a combination of these fields. Our Urban and Regional Planning program, a descendent of the first such program offered in Australia, allows students to draw on the resources of the Planning Research Centre as well as related programs in Heritage Conservation and Urban Design. Our Interaction Design and Electronic Arts program is one of only a handful of such programs offered around the world that focus on the nexus between design, human computer interaction and technology.

All of these programs help round out the educational breadth offered in our Master of Architecture. Not only is it the program of choice for our Bachelor of Design in Architecture students, but we are also increasingly finding those from other universities in Australia and right around the world joining us to take the course.
