Study building design

See your ideas come to life with a career in building design. Pair your creativity with practical, analytical skills from our hands-on courses and learn to produce drawing and models for both residential and small-scale commercial projects as a building designer.

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

TAFE Queensland offers short courses in Revit and Computer Aided Design (CAD) as well as a Diploma of Building Design (CPP50911). Our diploma level course meets the minimum technical requirements for you to apply for your Low Rise or Medium Rise Building Design licence.
