Bachelor of Construction Management

When Griffith University launched the Bachelor of Construction Management last year, Kate Guest knew it was the degree that she had been looking for. ‘I know I want to be more involved in every part of the construction process, so I found construction management as a new degree and 100% knew that this was what I wanted,’ she said. Kate, an Honours student, would also like to complete research as part of a masters degree after gaining experience in the field. At Griffith, Kate feels that she is surrounded by people that want to see her succeed. ‘My lecturers and tutors are amazing; they are friendly and help with anything I need clarity on.
