connecting academics with industry

The Architecture and Building Association (ABA) is a student lead initiative, providing university students with a professional networking platform. It also strives to provide learning opportunities throughout the events and programs it facilitates. Whether you’re a first year student that’s simply interested in the building industry or a graduate within the university looking to improve career prospects and create a professional network, this club offers something for everyone.

So be sure to sign up to a club with something to offer for everyone, or get in contact with us via email. We look forward to seeing you around!

In the digital age of today, marketing is done primarily through social media which allows instant connections with a tap of a button. This networking aligns itself with the ABA, providing a platform for design students to interact – something that will prove invaluable in the future.
