Gain skills to deliver complex design
Design management is an opportunity for Architects to take a leadership role in the design process through a better understanding of project management within the context of architectural ingenuity and creativity. The combined Master of Architecture/Master of Project Management program is designed to support this international trend and to deliver projects that ultimately reflect longevity.
Unique Internship Opportunities
Bond University's partnerships with AECOM and WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff will each provide six Bond University students annually with a 12-week full-time internship in integrated design management at AECOM or WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff. AECOM employs 100,000 people across the globe and reported a US$18 billion workbook in the 12 months to September 30 last year. WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff has 34,000 employees, including engineers, technicians, scientists, architects, planners, surveyors, program and construction management professionals, and various environmental experts. The firm is based in more than 500 offices across 40 countries worldwide. These are the two largest integrated design firms in the world.
Internships are available to students in the final semester of this combined degree, with students able to nominate their preferred location, meaning they can align the experience with their ultimate career goals or even future employment destinations.
- A combined program designed to equip graduates with the skills to complete and deliver complex designs
- Opportunity to undertake an internship with leading industry organisations
- Graduate sooner with Bond’s accelerated degrees
About the program
The combined Masters degree in Architecture and Project Management enables students interested in integrated design management to gain specialised knowledge related to the coordination of the design process and the maximisation of client satisfaction. The blurring of boundaries between the built environment disciplines is occurring as a response to client demand for more complex designs involving specialist knowledge. Show more
The combined Masters degree in Architecture and Project Management enables students interested in integrated design management to gain specialised knowledge related to the coordination of the design process and the maximisation of client satisfaction. The blurring of boundaries between the built environment disciplines is occurring as a response to client demand for more complex designs involving specialist knowledge. This is an international trend, underpinned by the need to deliver projects that ultimately reflect long life, loose fit and low energy. Graduates may also be involved in design optimisation, process re-engineering and value management within the confines of economic, social and environmental criteria. The combined degree provides a unique blend of studio-based architectural design and generic project management problem-solving abilities. A distinct feature of this program takes place during the final semester where students undertake work-based learning in an integrated design environment either in Australia or overseas. Studies can be achieved within three calendar years part-time given recent or concurrent employment. Upon completion of the combined program, graduates receive two separate accredited degrees.

As a consequence of increasing levels of complexity in modern construction, the rationale for integrated design management is borne, demanding a much greater focus on effective teamwork and information handling. No single consultant can design a complex building project without a diverse range of disciplines contributing to the solution, but the management of this process up until recent times has been poorly defined. Integrated design management is an opportunity for architects to take a leadership role in the design process through a better understanding of project management within the context of architectural ingenuity and creativity.
The combined program will be automatically accredited by the Australian Institute of Architects, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and Australian Institute of Project Management. Graduates of this combined degree are also internationally recognised by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
