Construction

About Construction at Melbourne

At the Melbourne School of Design we approach Construction  in the broadest possible way, as a discipline ideally incorporating any area of technical endeavour that seeks to improve our ability to manage the industrial structure, the fabrication and procurement process, and the output of building. 

Our curriculum is conceived to integrate the present requirements of professional training and education with the future needs of the industry, domestically as well as internationally. Our teaching seeks to produce successful work-ready graduates, but to also challenge students to contribute intellectually to tackling the industry’s social, technological, financial and environmental challenges.

Programs in Construction

Undergraduate study in Construction is taught through the Bachelor of Design and Bachelor of Environments.

The Construction major focuses on the management of people, processes and materials in the construction industry, and how they apply to specific building projects. This is an exciting and challenging time to be working in this field, as technologies are changing rapidly and our built environment has to respond quickly to difficult global environmental and resource challenges. You will learn through site visits and special presentations by industry professionals to deepen your understanding of real world practice.
