Kate Guest

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. They are extremely knowledgeable and are happy to share their experiences,’ she said.
