0

KUCHING: Studying a bachelor degree in construction management at University of South Australia gives students an ideal preparation for a future career in construction.

The four-year bachelor degree qualifies students to work in a range of construction professions including construction manager, building surveyor (BS), quantity surveyor (QS) and project manager.

The degree is recognised around the world and students may enter professional associations for surveying and building in Australia, UK and Malaysia.

University of South Australia (UniSA ) places strong emphasis on practical training and work placements.

Each student undertakes at least 100 days of industrial experience to help them prepare for employment and also undertakes a final year construction project that mimics the future work they would do.

It is no exaggeration to say that when UniSA construction students graduate they are ready to work straight away. As such, 97 per cent of construction management graduates find jobs straight after graduation.

Studying construction management at UniSA is a popular choice for Malaysian students and over the past few years many students with Malaysian government scholarships have enrolled at UniSA.

University of South Australia is one of Australia’s top-ranked universities and is well known for construction management with a long history of producing outstanding graduates working across the world.

Student can enjoy access to world-standard facilities found at UniSA’s campus hub for technology research and learning and award-winning teachers who care for their students and want to see them succeed.

Entry to UniSA is open to school leavers, diploma students and students transferring from other degree programmes. For students with prior learning on construction and quantity or building surveying, credit exemption may be offered to reduce the time spent in Australia.

At the same time civil engineering is a highly rewarding career for students with talents in science, technology and environment.

Careers include civil engineer, construction engineer, environmental engineer, geotechnical engineer, traffic engineer, water engineer or structural engineer. In general, civil engineers work in the construction industry, in consultancy companies or in government agencies gaining a high degree of job stability and salaries only second to medical professionals.
