Course overview

The Graduate Certificate of Construction Management is made up of 4 credit points of study which blend innovative practice and leading edge research using a case based approach to learning.


Deakin’s post-graduate construction management courses provide students with the understanding, knowledge and skills in a variety of roles in quantity surveying and construction management. The course is suitable for personnel involved in the procurement of built facilities as consultants or contractors, as well as people in government departments and commercial organisations who are responsible for the procurement of such facilities.

The courses have been designed to suit the needs of two types of graduates:

  • Graduates from a built environment and engineering background who are seeking to up-skill.
  • Graduates who have completed an undergraduate degree from an unrelated discipline, wanting to formalise their entry into the construction management profession through an accredited construction management and quantity surveying pathway.

Students will work in a multi-disciplinary context with topics that are at the forefront of the built environment industry, such as: Project Feasibility Evaluation, Cost Planning, Professional Business Practice, Construction Measurement, Commercial Construction Organisation, Design Management, Legal Risk Management, Sustainability, Urban Ecologies and Strategic Construction Procurement.  

The courses are designed to provide the specialist skills related to the theoretical, policy, evaluative and research frameworks that underpin the construction professions.


The Graduate Certificate of Construction Management can only be completed as an exit option from the Master of Construction Management.


Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
