Building Design and Drafting

Architectural drafters and building designers hold key positions in many sectors of the construction industry. You will learn how to convert an idea into clear, dimensioned drawings, and to provide the builder with the necessary information for construction, taking into account the principles of energy efficient design and sustainability. With a healthy level of housing, public infrastructure works and mining projects in Western Australia, this is a field with good employment prospects.

By studying at North Metropolitan TAFE, you will find yourself in an exciting and rewarding career under the supervision of architects, builders or building designers. With further studies, you can also work on industrial and commercial projects and even go on to be a supervisor or manager in the industry.
