All of the world's most exciting infrastructure facilities such as roads, railways, buildings, train stations, airports, bridges and tunnels all started with a design. And with this qualification, you could be the designer behind our future new facilities.

This qualification will give you the knowledge and skills needed for the roles of senior civil works designers, or paraprofessional designers who support professional engineers. You'll develop the expertise needed to perform tasks that are broad, specialised, complex, technical, and include strategic areas and initiating activities, learn about the design of complex projects, and have high level technical knowledge to initiate solutions to problems or management requirements, and  manage the civil works design process and program.
