Be part of one of the fastest growing industries in Australia and Asia–Pacific.
Rapid urbanisation and population growth has seen the demand for construction professionals continue to expand globally. Construction managers play a critical role in directing and managing complex construction projects, ensuring they run to time and budget.
Gain essential industry experience while you study and develop strong problem solving and essential leadership skills needed to confidently manage commercial, building, mining and infrastructure projects.
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.
As a graduate, you’ll be prepared for a rewarding career as a construction professional. Your industry knowledge combined with strong skills in problem-solving, decision-making, communication and technology, will prepare you for leadership roles across the full spectrum of construction projects. You’ll find employment opportunities in roles such as construction or project manager, cost estimator, cost planner, site manager, construction economist or consultant, quality manager and contract administrator. Job opportunities in construction management are expected to grow strongly over the next five years with the average salary of a construction manager significantly higher than the average job salary*.
