Overview

Bachelor of Construction Management

You will study core areas of construction, including law, management, communication, and materials and business, and use digital tools for data-driven decision-making and productivity. 

These will give you an excellent understanding of the role of a construction professional.

You’ll also study more complex fields such as quantity surveying, building surveying, contract administration, development regulation, development economics and fire engineering.

You will graduate career ready, with the Professional Practice Program offering the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learnt throughout your studies in real-world settings.

With appropriate progress in this degree, you can enter directly into the fourth year of the Bachelor of Construction Management (Honours) to achieve a higher level of qualification and the ability to attain higher levels of accreditation.

Informed by research, strengthened with industry input and taught by experienced professionals, you will be educated in contemporary theory, practice and technology, including building information modelling, thermal modelling software and immersive virtual reality.

This will prepare you to operate as an adaptable professional, rapidly learning new skills and evolving with technological advancements and sustainable building practices. 

You will also have opportunities to apply your knowledge in professional settings, with these skills highly valued by employers.

Many students are successful in gaining employment within the construction industry before completing their degree, with flexible learning options via online platforms, face-to-face at our City East campus, or a mixture of both, enabling your to tailor your studies to your work and lifestyle.

Real-world connections

The Bachelor of Construction Management has been informed by research and developed with input from the industry to ensure it is firmly in step with industry needs. 

It is proudly taught by academics with strong industry associations, with educators bringing their personal knowledge and experience into the classroom, in addition to the relevant theory.

In collaboration with the Sustainable Infrastructure and Resource Management research concentration, educators are actively involved in research into:

  • smart infrastructure and built environments
  • sustainable materials, sustainable operation of built assets, smart maintenance, demolition waste management and reverse logistics
  • human factors for construction safety and the usability of built environments for an ageing society

with their research directly informing the program of study, particularly in areas such as smart cities and artificial intelligence in construction.

You will have the chance to build your industry networks and connections through the UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program, offering placement opportunities as well as internships, site visits, industry panels, guest lectures and networking events.
