Real opportunities

"I help manage a range of construction projects and deliver premium quality properties. My main focus is large-scale brownstone renovations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Jersey City. The construction projects transform a space into a beautiful home while restoring and preserving historic architecture. I chose to study urban development as I've always been intrigued by the complex methodology and mass scale of construction. QUT taught me that opportunities will always be available if you work hard and are open to them."
Rachel Mawn - Bachelor of Urban Development

Real experience

"During my course I have had the opportunity to visit construction sites with the QUT Construct Club and meet industry professionals working in the field. The supportive and approachable nature of QUT’s teaching staff have really boosted my confidence not only in the classroom but also in the workplace. I am now working with a leading property developer as part of their Quantity Surveying Internship program."
