Graduate Diploma of Construction Management

Swinburne University of Technology

The construction industry has always required efficient technical and financial project administrators, and this need is even greater in today's financial climate. Projects must run efficiently on all fronts, and managers must be able to plan, execute and supervise jobs with professional skill in areas where each new technological advance creates a need for new techniques, methods and equipment. The main aim of this program is to prepare graduates for future roles in managing people, equipment, materials, technological processes and funds in the construction, building and maintenance of buildings and assets in the civil infrastructure. This aim is facilitated by the study of advanced management and engineering techniques in the fields of construction, building and maintenance. The Graduate Diploma of Construction Management is part of a nested suite consisting of the Graduate Certificate in Construction Management, Graduate Diploma of Construction Management, Master of Construction Management and Master of Construction and Infrastructure Management.

Beyond that, we prioritise your learning experience above all else. Swinburne was ranked in the top three in Victoria for student satisfaction, outstripping the national average (QILT Student Experience Survey 2016). 

With that goal in mind, we recently launched the Bachelor of Engineering Practice – Australia’s first engineering degree that uses project-based learning, while eliminating lectures and exams. And that’s just for a start.
