Study Building Design

When you study Building Design, you will develop your architectural building design skills in both the residential and commercial areas of the industry. Students will work on real projects, reflecting real-life work practises, responding to real client briefs.

Course Overview

In this course, students will learn specialist skills in building design for residential and small-scale commercial projects. They will learn to understand client needs to develop building design concepts and create sustainable design solutions.

Successful completion of this course will give students the practical skills and knowledge to enter the building design industry and allow you to apply for your Low Rise and Medium Rise Building Design licences.

Greater need for advanced technical skills in building and construction has resulted in high demand for building and surveying technicians. The number of job openings for qualified people in this area is expected to be up to 50,000 in the next five years.

Building designers may specialise in residential projects, including new buildings, heritage restorations and additions or renovations; or they may also undertake commercial and industrial projects, such as factories, motels, offices, restaurants, retail or service outlets and warehouses.
