Architectural Technology: Structural Design focuses upon engineering structures for designers. Building upon fundamental principles learned in the technology and environment stream of Studios 1, 2, 3 and 4, the engineering structures subject develops these concepts in greater detail and asks students to learn and demonstrate competency with the quantitative and analytical aspects of structural design. Furthermore, the ability to integrate structural logic in the service of a design idea is made fundamental and both learned through examination of material, case studies, site visits and precedents as well as through application

1. Awareness and ability to develop and apply design thinking to assembly, structural & construction systems (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.2).
2. Demonstrate understanding of structural and construction systems, tectonics and their assembly and fabrication methods combined with the resulting organizational and economic implications (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.2).
3. Demonstrate understanding of application of appropriate materials in assembly and construction systems and how technological and environmental design involve the resourcing, configuration, and deployment of material in a variety of contexts (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.2.1, 3.2.2, 3.6.1, 3.6.2, 3.7.2).
4. Ability to represent and test increasingly complex spatial and organizational concepts and construction, structural and technical assemblies with 2D, 3D, written and oral forms of representation (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.1, 3.7.2).
5. Demonstrate effective communication, collaborative and organisational skills in a group setting (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.7.2).
6. Develop awareness of building systems, building project cycle, various methods of building procurement and a basic understanding of the application of the relevant codes and standards (AIA Tertiary Education Policy category 3.4.1).
