Define your career potential

The property sector is Australia’s largest industry and second largest employer. Fulfilling the residential and non-residential needs of Australia continues to remain a priority and requires employers to hire graduates with the capabilities and skills to work in a dynamic and unpredictable market. Now more than ever, graduates must combine their knowledge and skills with the advancements in technology to remain competitive.

Combined studies

The Master of Valuation and Property Development/ Master of Project Management ensure graduates are equipped with knowledge and skills across a variety of disciplines. Graduates focus their attention to property investment and valuation, as well as project and program management. This combination of knowledge and skills allows graduates to differentiate themselves in the industry and pursue many career paths.

About the program

The combined Masters degree in Valuation and Property Development and Project Management enables students interested in being a development manager to gain specialised knowledge related to property investment and development. Development managers require project management skills to ensure that complex new initiatives are implemented as intended. It is also an international endeavour, where property development and urban renewal is relentless. Therefore, a combined understanding of the property investment process together with the generic principles of successful management of scope, time, cost, risk, human resources, quality, procurement, stakeholders and environmental impact, and their balanced integration, is most valuable. Development managers must know how to assess risks, and take them where appropriate, and may be involved in commercial, residential, industrial and civil developments, often involving large-scale projects. Students graduate with a Master of Valuation and Property Development and a Master of Project Management upon completion.Graduates of this degree are internationally recognised by the Project Management Institute (PMI).

The Advanced Architectural Design MSc provides the resources for you to gain further skills in design architecture.

About this course

You will take one of our four course pathways:

  • Computation
  • Sustainable Buildings and Environments
  • Property Development
  • Architecture and Cities.

The Computation pathway enables you to develop a world-leading and future-proof design portfolio. You will learn the key skills in programming and computational hardware. You'll develop building systems based on responsive and biological based materials, challenging you to think in a new way about computation.

You'll have access to the School’s state of the art workshops, including:

  • a wet fabrication facility that includes 3D printers
  • a molecular biology lab (one of the first in the world to be administered by a school of architecture).

You will then be able to develop your own project based on your personal interests. You will be able to make use of our research resources and infrastructure to complete this project.

The Sustainable Buildings and Environments (SBE) pathway will enable you to gain proficiency in designing sustainable buildings and built environments.

You will be set the challenge of designing to reduce carbon footprint without compromising the socio-cultural and economic significance of your architectural designs.

Leading academics and practitioners in sustainable buildings design contribute to the course. They will demonstrate how sustainable thinking can inform live projects.

The course reflects how architectural design is multidisciplinary, relating to areas such:

  • environmental psychology
  • building energy regulations
  • cultural analysis

It aims to create a new genre of architects. You will be able to:

  • design buildings and micro-urban environments using predictive building performance tools
  • gain the creative edge that has always been a strength of our students.

The Property Development pathway is unique and specifically set up for designers. Architects bring distinctive skills to property development. They are able to:

  • rapidly test plots for their potential
  • devise innovative solutions for making the most of sites

However, designers rarely lead such developments and sometimes lack the knowledge and skills to do so. This programme addresses this by offering students an introduction to:

  • valuation
  • mapping
  • planning law
  • development economics
  • accounting and finance

It concludes with a individual Dissertation or Design Research Project. This programme will suit those with a degree in architecture who are keen to use their distinctive design abilities and broaden their practice into property and development.

Architecture and Cities pathway

 Full time: 1 year 

This pathway focuses on understanding the role of architectural design in the built environment. You will be able to relate buildings, and the spaces between them, to human needs. You'll also conduct detailed studies of particular urban communities. The course will concentrate on determining strategies of appropriate development for specific urban sites.

You will complete projects based on devising community based frameworks for selected sites in all three semesters. Some of the themes of the projects are:

  • holistic design frameworks
  • public space within an increasingly privatised built environment
  • notions of identity, community and culture within the urban context

Your final semester thesis is a major design project that provides you with an opportunity to elaborate significantly on these themes.

You will challenge preconceived notions of:

  • architecture
  • urban design and the city 
  • ingrained habits of architectural conceptualisation and representation

Full time: 2 years 

The first year of Architecture and Cities provides an unprecedented underpinning for the second year. You will share teaching with the Stage 5 of the MArch course. As part of this, you'll continue to explore the notion of the urban realm.

In the first semester of Year 2, you will focus on masterplanning and generating ideas from research of the city the studio is set in. In the second semester, you are asked to focus on the detail of the project, both technically and atmospherically. You will learn about the components below which buildings need to function and remain sustainable:

  • technical
  • structural
  • mechanical
  • environmental.

Facilities:

The School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape has excellent studio teaching facilities. Our facilities include:

  • studios
  • exhibition spaces
  • print room
  • seminar rooms
  • IT suites
