Physics, Graphics, Mathematics C
As a professional engineer you can be a driver of change in society and be not only responsible for the technological change, but also the impact it has on communities, society and the environment in general. This course provides a unique opportunity to become a civil engineer with high-level engineering planning and design skills complemented by architectural planning and designs skills required for the approval and construction of a range of building types. Civil engineers are typically involved in planning design and maintenance of physical infrastructure systems including the construction of buildings and bridges, transport and water resource. Building designers provide design solutions for residential and commercial buildings and work for design, architecture, planning, building or engineering firms, government departments and corporations with a large building portfolio.
Accreditation for the course will be sought from Engineers Australia (next accreditation round - 2021) and the Building Designers Association of Australia (2021).
There is a license for low rise and medium rise building designers issued by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission. The proposed Diploma of Building Design content is equivalent to the CPP50911 Diploma of Building Design that is currently recognised by the Queensland Building and Construction Commission as the minimum required technical qualification for the Building Design - low and medium rise licence classes. The school has contacted the commission with respect to their licensing requirements with a view to having this course recognised as a prescribed technical qualification for these licence classes.
