Study construction at USQ
Construction is one of Australia's fastest growing industries and should continue to expand. Large infrastructure projects cost millions of dollars and take years to complete, so the need for construction managers to handle project time frames and budget is critical.
With the knowledge and practical skills you'll acquire through USQ's hands-on courses, you will graduate ready to make an impact in the construction industry. Over the course of the degree you will develop proficiency in problem-solving analysis, engineering design and construction management, as well as expertise in built environment, quantity surveying and building services design.
The Bachelor of Construction (Honours) provides you with the opportunity to complete a minor study, allowing you to enhance your knowledge and skills within a specific area or specialisation. You have the option to choose a minor in building, construction or to create your own.
