UNSW Built Environment offers a comprehensive range of specialised degree programs that few universities can match. Nine undergraduate programs and eight postgraduate programs are available and, as part of the internationally acclaimed faculty, each degree program is regarded as one of Australia's leading university qualifications.

Interdisciplinary Learning (BEIL)

Built Environment Interdisciplinary Learning (BEIL) is a new faculty-wide initiative which began in 2013 and is now a core component of all undergraduate degrees at UNSW Built Environment.

Interdisciplinary learning has always been valued in our faculty and through this initiative all students have the opportunity to experience it in whichever program they choose. 

All built environment professionals work on interdisciplinary projects throughout their careers. These courses enable students to experience modes of interdisciplinary practice and research from all seven programs and to understand the potential of their collective impact on complex built environment problems. Skills and knowledge learned in BEIL courses are useful in professional practice every day. 

BEIL courses provide the opportunity for students to experience working with other disciplines from the faculty, sharing their discipline knowledge and skills with others. They offer opportunities for knowledge exchange and translation amongst built environment disciplines and establish the critical significance of interdisciplinarity in practice.
