Course programme

This is a new degree being introduced in 2017. Please note there will be no intake into Semester 2, 2016.

Design applies to a whole range of contexts, with applications in the creation and improvement to cities, buildings, transport, furniture, websites, processes, bridges, landscapes and the environment.

As a student in the new Bachelor of Design, you’ll use innovative processes to solve problems creatively, and determine solutions for a better future. You will develop knowledge and skills, and study real projects within the built environment, engineering, performing and visual arts, and technology disciplines. You can focus on one or two majors, or complete a major and a minor.

You will work with internationally recognised scholars and industry professionals. Design studios, site visits, field trips and interaction with industry practitioners will take you into ‘real life’ situations with industry briefs.


The 12 majors in the Bachelor of Design are:

  • Architecture
  • Construction
  • Computing
  • Civil Systems
  • Digital Technologies
  • Landscape Architecture
  • Mechanical Systems
  • Property
  • Spatial Systems
  • Urban Planning
  • Performance Design
