Cutting edge designs. Sustainable building practices. Restoration of heritage buildings. Client advice from concept to final build.

If creating designs and seeing them brought to life is what makes you tick, FedUni's Advanced Diploma of Building Design (Architectural) will help you to forge your own career doing just that. Graduating from this advanced diploma will see you working alongside architects, manufacturers and building contractors as you develop working drawings and documentation for commercial developments, industrial structures and residential homes.

During your studies, you'll learn about digital design, construction technologies and detailed documentation and also get to visit real work sites. You'll have classes four to six hours per day, four days a week during your first and second year, whilst in your third year you'll be in classes one day each week, allowing for hands-on time spent within the industry.

Like architects, building designers design buildings and develop working drawings and documentation for all components in the construction of residential, commercial and industrial buildings.

  • Building designer
  • Commercial kitchen designer
  • Documentation technician

Graduates of this program are working for building design organisations, architects and building contractors in both large and small commercial enterprises or government departments. This could include restoration of old buildings, commercial kitchen design and as documentation technicians for specialists, manufacturers and suppliers.

Work as a sole practitioner after registration with the Building Practitioners Board.
