AASA - Providing leadership and advocacy for architectural education in Australasia
UNITEC Institute of Technology
Department of Architecture
Study architecture at Unitec and you’ll develop the skills to create buildings that enhance the urban environment. You’ll also learn how to plan, design and advise on the construction of new and existing buildings.
Our architecture courses include lots of hands-on practice too. Undergraduate students take part in research projects at architecture practices and Master of Architecture (professional) students complete work experience.
And if you’re interested in Māori architecture and technology, you’ll love te hononga, our Māori studio where we combine traditional materials with new technologies.
Some architecture students even build their own designs. For example a social housing project for a west Auckland community that was designed and built by students. And you’ll also have the opportunity to go on study tours or student exchange to Australia, China, Italy and the Pacific Islands.
Unitec students re-design Whangarei waterfront
