  • Students must achieve a minimum average of 70 per cent in their TAFE studies to be eligible for this course.
  • Students complete the Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) at Holmesglen Institute of TAFE in Malvern East and complete years two and three at Monash University, Clayton campus.


This course is a collaboration articulated with the Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) offered at the Holmesglen Institute of TAFE. Upon successful completion of the Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) with an overall final average of 70 per cent or higher, applicants may apply to the second year of the Bachelor of Technology (Infrastructure - Design, Construction and Management) degree at Monash University. The final two years of the degree program is taught at the Clayton campus. Second and third year studies at university include structural analysis and design, construction methodology, waste disposal, building materials, design methods, public health, geotechnical engineering and system management, computer software and communication skills.


The course aims to provide the knowledge, skills and attitudes to build, manage and design the exciting infrastructure projects of the future.

Credit for prior studies

Students are awarded credit towards level one of the bachelors degree on the successful completion of all prescribed units of the Diploma of Building and Construction (Building) from Holmesglen Institute of TAFE.
