Master of Design (Architecture and Design)
The School of Architecture and Design at RMIT is widely recognised for innovative leadership and contribution to excellence in design research. At RMIT we contend that research is conducted through designing and that the process of designing, as a means of increasing knowledge, parallels research in other areas in fascinating ways.Research candidates are supported and engaged in communities of design practice where learning is fundamentally a social phenomenon; where knowledge is integrated in the life of these communities that share interests, discourses and ways of doing things.The Master of Design may be undertaken in a project or thesis mode. This decision is made in consultation with your supervisor.On completion of this program you will have:... [-]

Master of Landscape Architecture
Landscape exists in all scales: from micro to macro, from garden to city and from political to infrastructural. Landscape is specific to site, time and process. It appears, reacts and merges with a multitude of forces in the environment, both visible and invisible.Landscape Architecture at RMIT is a world-leading program. In 2012, this program won the International Schools Award at the European Biennial of Landscape Architecture held in Barcelona, taking first place ahead of more than 90 universities involved. The judges declared that the work from RMIT showed our students’ ability to ‘respond to modern challenges in society through critical analysis, innovative design and clever use of space’.Landscape architecture at RMIT invests in the importance of design as a means of responding, observing and critiquing the status of contemporary urban society and equips students with the tools to engage with landscape in all its forms....

Master of Architecture
Discipline-specific and design focused, the Master of Architecture focuses on developing the core skills of architectural design through to an advanced level. You'll enhance your understanding of architecture and design-based research, acquire diverse skills, undertake a variety of learning experiences and gain critical awareness of your own work.RMIT Architecture graduates are design innovators who continue to achieve at the highest levels and are acknowledged by the national and international architectural profession. In 2012 RMIT student Ton Vu was shortlisted for The Architectural Review’s “Global Architecture Graduate Awards”, a shortlist of only 10 students worldwide and containing no other candidates from Australian or New Zealand universities.Our students have also been extremely successful in recent years in the Architecture Australia (AA) “Unbuilt Architecture Awards”, open not only to students but to registered architects. The Australian Institute of Architects (AIA) “National Australian Achievement in Architecture Awards” recognise and honour the accomplishments of individuals who contribute to society through architecture and the built environment, and RMIT-affiliated recipients featured prominently in the 2013 awards....

Is the Master of Achitecture for you?
The problem based learning and inclusive approach to studio teaching is one of the strengths of the program at Newcastle. The projects in the first year of the program focus on large-scale urban design, mixed-use and the detailed design of high-rise buildings. These design projects emphasise creative, social, cultural and ecological issues relating to urbanism and the built environment. The final year of the program provides you with the opportunity to develop their own elective project over the course of the year, applying in-depth research and resolution to a singular design problem. Within a creative and innovative learning environment the final exhibited project explores the complexities of making buildings for the future of the built environment. The comprehensive way that each stage of the architectural design process is articulated, critiqued and developed provides you with a portfolio of work that reflects the making of buildings in the real world. Projects undertaken by students often have real world clients and reflect the challenging environment that architects find themselves. The program is supported by a number of visiting adjunct professors and leading architects including Ric LePlastrier, Peter Stutchbury and Peter Davidson.... [-]
