Course Information

The Diploma in Civil Engineering (Building and Construction) is designed to develop students’ knowledge and skills progressively in line with current requirements in the building and construction industry. The programme includes 12 papers of level 5 to 7 with a total of 240 credits. The programme will enable students to understand a variety of concepts, processes and procedures relevant to the building and construction industry.

This program is specifically designed to enhance learners’ knowledge and skills in building structures, construction materials theory, building conservation, earthquake engineering, construction contract administration, and project planning, scheduling, costing, execution and monitoring. The knowledge achieved through this qualification will enable graduates to select and apply appropriate qualitative and/or quantitative techniques in order to identify engineering problems, apply an analytical approach to solve those problems to come up with engineering solutions contributing towards building structure and construction related decision making.

This programme aims to provide students with advanced theoretical knowledge, analytical and practical skills, and in-depth understanding of technological principles, techniques and physical procedures required for employment in the civil engineering industry including building and construction. Students will acquire conceptual knowledge and practical skills in research, consultancy, planning, design, development, operation and maintenance founded on scientific principles, upon which civil engineering is based.

Graduates of this programme will also possess the advanced knowledge and skills required to select and apply appropriate qualitative and/or quantitative techniques in order to identify engineering problems, apply an analytical approach to solve those problems to come up with engineering solutions to the various segments of the building and construction industry and service the industry needs. By producing skilled graduates, this will benefit New Zealand in dealing with the increasing demand of more professionals required to design, create and build structures efficiently.
