Architecture in Australia at University of Newcastle
The School of Architecture and Built Environment has developed an innovative approach to architectural education. Students on this programme work on projects that reflect real design problems met by architects in practice and develop knowledge and skills that will be required of them when they graduate.
The Master is delivered through a mixture of problem based learning, design studio tutoring and traditional lecture based teaching. Students learn about the technical, ecological, historical, theoretical and managerial concerns of architecture, and work both on conceptual projects and on their own project in the final year
