Course Information

Take your career to new heights

If you’re keen to become an accomplished professional in the building industry, the Bachelor of Building and Construction Management can equip you with the necessary skills to become a confident leader. Learn management and supervision techniques while developing detailed knowledge of building processes and materials. This expertise, together with real-world negotiation, presentation and communication skills, will prepare you for a successful career in building and construction management.

In your final year you can choose either an honours or professional focus path:

  • Honours: If you’re a high performing student (with a minimum grade point average for 5.0), you can choose to undertake an honours project instead of electives in the final two semesters of the course. You must have your course convener’s approval for entry into this stream. This aspect of your degree will see you develop advanced knowledge and skills for professional work, critical thinking and further learning corresponding to AQF Level 8 qualifications.

  • Professional: If you select the professional stream, you can choose to complete a minor in areas including quantity surveying, architecture or small business management. This stream will provide you with the broad and coherent knowledge and skills for professional work corresponding to AQF Level 7.

Study our Bachelor of Building and Construction Management at UC and you will:

  • Possess and apply broad and coherent theoretical knowledge and concepts of current construction practices, building and construction economics, and legal frameworks, to be managers within the building and construction industry

  • Recognise and apply the use of appropriate building and construction technologies and processes to solve simple and complex industry issues

  • Communicate as a professional to all stakeholders in the building and construction industry, with the ability to work independently or as part of a project team, for the successful conclusion of industry projects

  • Demonstrate ethical, social and environmental responsibility in addressing real world industry issues and imperatives, in global and local contexts, with sensitivity to indigenous rights in the construction industry

  • Demonstrate and apply creative, innovative and critical thinking, with a commitment to lifelong learning, to solve problems and generate solutions to complex construction issues.

In addition to the above, graduates completing Honours will:

  • Demonstrate advanced knowledge of the principles and concepts of building and construction management and apply these with initiative and judgement in their professional practice as managers of the building and construction industry

  • With responsibility and accountability for their own learning and practice, demonstrate the cognitive and technical skills to identify and complete a research project generating solutions to complex construction issues

  • Communicate solutions and research outcomes with clear and coherent exposition of knowledge and ideas to a variety of audiences.

Work-integrated learning

Throughout this course you will complete up to 40 days of work placement as part of your degree. You will be required to complete a minimum of 20 days as part of your FAD work placement unit, Industry & Community Engagement (Internships), and complete a further indicative 20 days as part of your structured course work. You will begin your readiness for work placement with the completion of your professional certificates for site readiness, included into introductory units on professional and ethical behaviours in the built environment sector during your first year in Introduction to Built Environment Management and Building and Construction Studies 1.
