If you believe building is in your future, start by building on your current qualifications and/or experience in the construction industry or switch to the industry now with Swinburne’s Graduate Certificate in Construction Management. It’s your gateway to making it happen.

Like any sort of profession, construction management is in itself a skill. This course provides a comprehensive understanding of the role to enable you, as a graduate, to apply your skills and knowledge to a wide range of technical and management roles in the project-based construction industry.

Develop specialised knowledge of construction management such as managing people, equipment, materials, built environment and infrastructure assets. And learn how best to oversee technological processes and managerial aspects related to the design, construction and maintenance of buildings and civil infrastructure.

It’s an ideal pathway for students with related qualifications to progress to a higher level of education in the field. Graduates, meanwhile, will be well-positioned to seek work in the burgeoning construction industry.
