A successful building and construction career starts with quality, hands-on learning. Our building design and construction management courses are highly regarded in the building industry and will connect you with employers.

The building design course prepares you for a career as a building designer, providing you with the practical skills, knowledge and qualifications to work in the residential and commercial design and construction sectors. This course also gives you a great edge if you’re planning to pathway to university.

As you learn about the presentation, documenting and architectural workflow process for building projects, you will explore techniques of freehand to digital design. You’ll build the right skills to communicate and work effectively with a variety of stakeholders, including regulatory authorities and a wide range of consultants associated with the design, construction and building services.

You will also have the opportunity to work on real projects, gaining real experience. Our strong partnerships with organisations such as City of Greater Geelong give you the opportunity to work on live projects throughout the region. On completion you can register with the Building Practitioners Board in Victoria and work alongside and assist other building and design professionals at higher levels.
 
There are multiple directions you can take in the construction industry. Do you envision running your own construction business? Or working on large-scale, commercial projects? Wherever you see yourself, we can put you on the path to becoming a registered builder, supervisor or manager in the construction industry.

We'll equip you with the skills to plan and coordinate the construction of medium-rise residential and commercial buildings, and build your knowledge of contract administration, supervision and quality risk factors. You'll graduate with the confidence, industry experience and network needed to take the next step.

Student story

Image of Thomas Cohen, Building Design and Construction

"My future career goal is to work on the project management side of construction. This course has been tremendous in helping me work towards my goal. It is very detailed, is easy to follow and has great study notes. 

Having previously worked in the construction industry as a carpenter, I really appreciate how the course is set up, allowing me to relate the modules to projects and work I have been involved in. It makes the study applicable and relevant. The teachers are also approachable and provide a great amount of support and encouragement."
