About this course

By bringing together the myriad streams of environmental performance, building economics and indoor environmental quality, this program produces built environment professionals with a strategic grasp of the challenges of building design, service provision and operations.


With extensive experience analysing and controlling the physical phenomena affecting buildings, practitioners of Architectural Science have a profound impact on the function, aesthetics and efficiency of architectural spaces.

The High Performance Buildings stream integrates the various components of the built environment, namely Architectural and Building Services (design and operations), passive and active Sustainability, strategic and operational Facility Management and Property Economics (highlighting return on investment principles). You will have the opportunity to not only learn but also actively participate in research as part of your studies.

The field of Architectural Science is enjoying rapid and exciting technological innovations. Through interdisciplinary access to our leading academic researchers and laboratories, our program emphasises the knowledge and critical thinking skills that will enable students to adapt to and lead future changes in our built environment.

On graduation you will have acquired an evidence-based education on the design, service provision and operation of buildings in a sustainable manner—an area with increasing economic and environmental importance.
