Design and architecture employment has recorded the fastest annual growth rate in 2014: employment grew by 42% (opens an external site), more than double the next nearest sector. Graduates from our Bachelor of Construction Project Management achieve industry-leading employment rates of 98% (Graduate Careers Australia Survey 2013).
Over two-thirds of DAB graduates and more than three-quarters of postgraduates are employed after three months of completing their studies. These are results from UTS analysis of the 2014 Australian Graduate Survey collected in October 2013 and April 2014.
