At school, Madeline Blackwood realised she liked organising teams and seeing projects come together, and so she enrolled in RMIT’s Diploma of Building and Construction.
Diploma of Building and Construction (Building)
Ask all the questions you can. It’s okay not to know everything.
I found I had a talent for organising and coordinating large teams when I was still in high school. I was interested in construction and decided to enrol in the Diploma of Building and Construction.
I loved studying in a large institute like RMIT, making life-long friends with similar interests.
Diploma of Building and Construction prepares you for working in the industry by teaching new and improving construction methods.
The lecturers helped us to meet industry representatives at the RMIT Industry Links night, so we could build our own networks.
I won the award for Outstanding Female Graduate at the Industry Link event, which was amazing.
My advice to future students is that you just have to dive in!
You’ll be amazed by what you can accomplish. Ask all the questions you can. It’s okay not to know everything.
I’ve been accepted into the Bachelor of Applied Science (Construction Management) (Honours), so I can study construction management and then work in the commercial sector.
