This Open Universities Australia unit in Advanced Applied Architectural Systems is intended to give students an understanding of a variety of architectural systems, whether these be environmental, technological or structural.
You will learn the methods of application for these within the scope of diverse architectural projects, specifically in relation to factors such as the environment and the needs of the community. The unit, offered by Curtin University, will give students both practical and theoretical experience so that they understand key elements of the design process, and can apply these in future decision making relating to architectural design.
A fieldwork component also allows students to research an area of their own choosing, allowing them to explore and test specific projects and systems. Assessment consists of a portfolio and two reports, which will make up the bulk of a student's mark.

As a core requirement of the Master of Architecture course, the Advanced Applied Architectural Systems unit is vital in preparing you for a career in architecture. Not only does it give you knowledge and experience in dealing with various types of architectural systems, you'll learn how to apply these in a variety of complex architectural projects.
With the thorough understanding of technological and environmental systems and later also structural systems you will gain from this program, you'll be able to make design decisions based on the built and natural environment of a project, while also factoring in the needs of both building users and the wider community.
With a focus on analysis, modelling and testing methods, the course will also prepare you in communicating your research and explorations at an international standard, and allow you to synthesise these findings in an appropriate way. As the unit uses diverse client profiles and a variety of contexts, students will come away with a broad scope of experience that will aid them when facing real-world scenarios in their career.
With assessment based on both a portfolio and reports, and fieldwork being a major component to this unit, students will find that they're also prepared for these aspects of an architectural career.
