The building industry offers a wide range of para-professional career choices. Can you see yourself managing a building site, inspecting buildings for compliance or designing buildings for developers? These a just a few of the career opportunities that can be pursued via a qualification offered by the Built Environment and Engineering.
With strong links to industry and offering nationally recognised qualifications the Built Environment and Engineering team deliver a range of industry-relevant courses. Ranging from Certificate IV to Advanced Diploma level our courses are delivered online which enables you to study when and where you want to.
Construction Management will see you interpreting plans, ordering and costing construction materials, managing timelines including trade sequencing and overseeing the construction phase of a building project. You will keep regular and accurate records and be able to identify building site WHS requirements.
Engineering Drafting skills are required by engineering offices as well as architectural practices. You will use CAD software to produce technical drawings to scale. You will apply standard drawing conventions which may be used to draft everything from buildings, structures and civil infrastructure to mechanical and technical details.
As a Building Designer, you will use your design and drafting skills to creatively meet client needs. You combine site analysis, planning scheme guidelines and building codes to design a wide range of small-scale building projects, including houses and commercial buildings. You design and document construction plans for submission to permit authorities and builders.
With an Advanced Diploma in Building Surveying you will be examining plans for compliance certification, inspecting buildings throughout the construction phase, providing building compliance audits and consultation services in relation to building code and Australian standards compliance.
“I’ve always wanted to study engineering. I’m not ready to go to Uni just yet, so this course is perfect as a mainstream bridging course” – Hugh, Diploma of Mechanical Engineering
