The School of Architecture and Urban Design delivers innovative scholarship in architecture, landscape architecture and interior design.

Innovation in learning and teaching is a key strength of the school. Practice-based and vertically integrated scholarship involving students, staff and practitioners provides an engagement in research-led design projects. This enables students to operate as empowered studio collaborators in the pursuit of design knowledge and skills. The School continues to innovate with the recent addition of new Masters degrees including the Master of Urban Design and the Master of Disaster, Design and Development.

The School is leading the establishment of international excellence in research which is aligned to and working with RMIT’s global network of partnerships, industries and cities, another of the University’s key strategic aims. It is recognised as the world leader in Design Practice Research with distinguished practitioner PhD cohorts geographically clustered around activities in Melbourne, Barcelona and Ho Chi Minh City.
