Construction Management

There are a number of ways to apply to study UniSA’s undergraduate and postgraduate coursework degrees.

Applications for admission into the University of South Australia’s undergraduate and most postgraduate degrees are made via the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC). Visit and follow the links.

Applications for a small number of degrees are submitted direct to UniSA through our Apply Online portal. It will be noted on the degree page if you need to apply via Apply Online.

Postgraduate study by research
For information on applying to do postgraduate study by research, including Masters by Research, PhDs or Doctorates, please visit .

Yes. The deadline to apply to study a degree at UniSA for semester one (commencing late February) and be given equal consideration is in early December. While you may be able to apply after this date, you are not guaranteed to be considered equally with other applicants and your application may not be assessed in time for the main round of offers (mid January). Some degrees will not make any offers after the main offer round. Click here to find all of the key dates for applications here .

Most postgraduate degrees do not have a closing date for applications. However, there are exceptions, so it is best to check – either on the SATAC website, Apply Online or the degree homepage. Postgraduate offers are normally ‘rolling’, meaning they may be sent out at any time up until the program starts. This also means that applications may close at any time without warning, if the quota is filled earlier. For this reason, postgraduate applications should be submitted without delay. For more information, please contact our Future Student Enquiries team on (08) 8302 2376 or via the online enquiry form.

You may be eligible to receive credit or advanced standing for your chosen UniSA degree based on your previous studies, if they are in a related area at an equivalent or higher level. Receiving credit will reduce the number of courses you undertake within the degree, and may also reduce the overall duration of your degree.

If you have related industry experience, you may also be eligible to receive credit (recognised prior learning) for this experience. Receiving credit will normally reduce the number of courses you undertake within the degree, and can reduce the duration of the degree.

Credit is assessed on a case-by-case basis by the Program Director who will discuss your prior learning and experience with you to ascertain what credit you may be eligible for.

Durango solo tiene 3 aпїЅos para crecer/Se proyecta tren Durango-MazatlпїЅn

El estado no estпїЅ preparado para la modernidad que se avecina con la supercarretera Durango-MazatlпїЅn, pues ademпїЅs es un hecho que la SecretarпїЅa de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT) considera la lпїЅnea ferroviaria hasta el citado puerto, esto dentro del plan de trabajo 2007-2012, segпїЅn notificпїЅ VпїЅctor SпїЅnchez SariпїЅana, titular de Transformadora Durango.

De modo que en lo que resta del sexenio de Ismael HernпїЅndez Deras пїЅprпїЅcticamente tres aпїЅos- se deberпїЅ equipar a Durango para que haga frente a todo el movimiento comercial que se generarпїЅ, aunado al crecimiento industrial y, por ende, la modernidad, detallпїЅ el constructor local.

En cuanto a los empresarios duranguenses, opinпїЅ que habrпїЅ quienes sпїЅ estпїЅn preparados para competir, aunque es innegable que hay otros que se quedarпїЅn atrпїЅs. пїЅLa experiencia nos ha definido que nos hemos quedado atrпїЅs y es el momento de despertarпїЅ, citпїЅ.

El ex Presidente de la CпїЅmara Mexicana de la Industria de la ConstrucciпїЅn (CMIC) refiriпїЅ que hay cerca de 50 mil millones de pesos como posible inversiпїЅn en lпїЅneas ferroviarias. пїЅLa obra mпїЅs importante es el ferrocarril Durango-MazatlпїЅnпїЅ, remarcпїЅ.

AsпїЅ que el tan solicitado tren hasta el puerto sinaloense podrпїЅa dejar de ser un sueпїЅo del ex diputado federal Pedro пїЅvila NevпїЅrez. пїЅSe convirtiпїЅ en una realidadпїЅ, opinпїЅ el funcionario estatal.

SпїЅnchez SariпїЅana especificпїЅ que con este tren, Durango se convertirпїЅ en el primer punto de conexiпїЅn en el movimiento de contenedores hacia el sur de Estados Unidos, lo cual es un aspecto por demпїЅs importante en el aspecto comercial.

пїЅLo que detonпїЅ es la carretera Durango-MazatlпїЅn y, bueno, estamos a tres aпїЅos para prepararnos para este movimiento comercial que se va a generarпїЅ, glosпїЅ.

Pero fue claro al decir que Durango en este momento no estпїЅ preparado para toda esta acciпїЅn en el sentido comercial e industrial que se avecina.

пїЅPor eso estamos planeando nuestro centro de negocios, nuestro Centro de Convenciones, nuestra nueva пїЅrea industrial, el recinto fiscalizador, la Aduana, en estos tres aпїЅos tenemos que sentar las bases para todo este movimientoпїЅ, dijo.

AsпїЅ que en lo que resta de la actual administraciпїЅn estatal, la entidad debe contar con la infraestructura suficiente para acoplarse a un crecimiento econпїЅmico acelerado.

пїЅNos van a aventar a la modernidad queramos o no. Estamos haciendo la lucha (para prepararnos), contamos con el apoyo del Gobernador, la visiпїЅn de пїЅl, e invitamos a inversionistas locales y forпїЅneos para que vengan a hacer toda la inversiпїЅn que se requiere, es factible porque es negocio, nada mпїЅs es facilitarles todo el trabajo para que lo haganпїЅ, detallпїЅ SпїЅnchez SariпїЅana.

Luis TпїЅllez, actual secretario de Comunicaciones y Transportes (SCT), dijo en la presentaciпїЅn de su plan de trabajo para el presente sexenio:

-пїЅEn total, en ferrocarriles se estima una inversiпїЅn de 49 mil millones de pesos a precios actuales, 27 mil de recursos pпїЅblicos de los tres пїЅrdenes de Gobierno y 22 mil de capital privadoпїЅ.

-La estrategia en materia de infraestructura ferroviaria y multimodal buscarпїЅ fomentar la ampliaciпїЅn del sistema y su vinculaciпїЅn con las demпїЅs redes de transporteпїЅ.

-пїЅPromoveremos que la ampliaciпїЅn de vпїЅas fпїЅrreas supere las limitaciones que impone todavпїЅa el trazo radial, que parte de la ciudad de MпїЅxico, mediante una nueva estructura de conexiones regionales. A los ocho corredores multimodales que existen a la fecha, se plantea aпїЅadir diez mпїЅs para 2012пїЅ.

      Metal vs. shingles for the roof: There’s lots to consider

      Metal roofs are no longer for warehouses only.

      More residential customers are having some form of metal roofing installed on their homes, with the perceived advantages of metal roofing systems being longer lasting and stronger than traditional asphalt shingles.

      “A lot of people just feel the reason they go to a metal is they have a (shingle) roof and the shingles went bad in seven to 15 years and they’re a little frustrated, so they’re switching because they just don’t want to deal with that again,” said Matt McCarthy, owner of McCarthy Roofing in Epworth, Iowa, which provides asphalt and metal roofing products.

      Roofing contractors say there is much to consider when a residential customer is weighing asphalt vs. metal roofing, and asphalt shingles remain a valid choice.

      But the number of residential customers using some form of metal roofing is growing. In the past 15 years, metal roofing’s market share in re-roofing projects has tripled from 4 percent to 12 percent, according to a recent McGraw-Hill Construction and Analytics survey.

      “We’re seeing a steady increase in the demand for metal roofing products, and expect to see continued growth,” said Bill Hippard, president of the Metal Roofing Alliance.

      Local roofers are seeing the trend.

      “We’re getting more and more calls for metal alternatives,” said Richard Nienke, of Roofco Residential Roofing in Dubuque. “Basically people are getting tired of having to replace their roofs, deal with shingles going bad.”

      The allure of metal roofing systems is their longevity and their durability. Proponents say metal roofs also have environmental benefits, can reduce heating and cooling costs and might lower the homeowner’s insurance rates.

      “I’ve talked to people who told me they’ve saved 30 percent on their home insurance,” said Jamison Nienke, of Roofco.

      For people who choose metal roofs, those benefits outweigh the costs: metal roofs can be double or triple the cost of using asphalt shingles, although proponents say that cost is negated in the long run.

      While a metal roof can cost twice as much in the first year, it can ultimately cost roughly a third of asphalt shingle roofs during the course of 60 years, according to the Metal Roofing Alliance.

      That’s why, Jamison Nienke said, many consumers choose their roof material based on how long they want it to last. If consumers are in a home they don’t plan on living in long term, they might be more apt to choose a shingle roof; if they plan on staying in the home for decades or keeping the home in the family, they might be more apt to choose metal.

      Metal roofs come in a variety of products, from large panels more familiar to commercial buildings to pieces that are designed to look like asphalt shingles.

      Jamison Nienke said each product has its particular strength, and consumers simply choose the one they like best.

      “Everybody has their own turning point. Some people want a long paint warranty, some people want something that is going to come with long transferability,” he said.

      Despite the metal roofing industry’s growth and the products’ advantages, asphalt shingles remain a viable option.

      In fact, McCarthy said he believes metal roofs are no better than a quality asphalt shingle.

      “I know there’s quite a few people going with (metal). I wouldn’t say it’s a hot trend,” McCarthy said. He said on new construction products, his consumers almost exclusively use asphalt shingles.

      McCarthy said that while metal roofs proclaim to last longer, a quality shingle with a good warranty can provide just as much financial security. He said both materials have their pros and cons.

      McCarthy said metal roofs are prone to sun wear and hail damage, repairs can be difficult depending on the product, and while many are not flammable, firefighters don’t like them because they are difficult to breach.

      “I don’t feel there’s more advantage of a metal roof over a shingle roof,” McCarthy said.

      Jamison Nienke, on the other hand, believes that once metal’s costs fall in line with asphalt shingles, the latter will become obsolete.

      He said in the past five years, the cost of metal shingles has risen 5 percent while the cost of asphalt shingles has roughly doubled.

      “(Metal) is the roofing of tomorrow,” he said. “It’s a matter of time before asphalt reaches the price that people just don’t pay for it anymore.”

      Online Mechanical Engineering Degree Programs: Accredited Schools #construction #degree #online


      Mechanical Engineering Degrees

      Salaries For Degrees in Mechanical Engineering

      Graduates with online bachelors mechanical engineering degrees can work in a variety of jobs. It is impossible to say what you personally will do with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, our survey panel picked the following occupations as likely options:

      • Mechanical engineers
      • Mechanical drafters
      • Sound engineering technicians

      The median salary for people with online masters mechanical engineering degrees is $59,828.07. The lifetime value of this degree is approximately $1,461,924.00.

      Salaries are highly dependent on individual negotiating skill, experience, your employer, area, and more besides. The estimates we show on these pages are just that: estimates. Your individual experience will likely vary.

      Where does this come from?

      The Bureau of Labor Statistics, a unit of the US government, classifies all workers into some 800-odd occupational categories. We paid a team of freelancers to solicit their opinion on what type of degree a holder of each type of job would likely have majored in. For pairs which had a high degree of consensus, we created a link between the degree and the job.

      From this, we calculated the average salary for Mechanical Engineering degrees and converted it into a lifetime value. We then compared it against other degrees at the same level of schooling (such as online associate mechanical engineering degrees), so that you can make informed educational and employment decisions.

      What Can a Mechanical Engineer Student Expect to Learn?

      A student studying Mechanical Engineering will have to learn a number of core concepts in order to successfully complete the program of study. This includes the areas of mechanics, structural analysis, thermodynamics, and kinematics. When combined with up to date software programs like computer-aided engineering (CAE) and computer-aided drafting (CAD), an undergraduate will have the necessary tools to be able to design a new system or repair an old one.

      This branch of engineering is one of the oldest known disciplines still being studied. That is because the basic principles and concepts haven’t changed in many years. While the technology and terminology continue to move forward, basic physics and material science laws remain the same as they were during the time of Sir Isaac Newton.

      Students will be equipped to deal with problems that involve the operation of machinery and tools once they complete their undergraduate studies. They will then be ready to offer this expertise to any number of companies.

      Although the ideas haven’t changed significantly for a number of years, this field has continued to advance due to the new discoveries that are constantly being made by researchers. Consequently, there are also new courses to study in order to keep up with changing technology. Advancements in the area of material science has lead to the new field of composites, while computer manufacturers continue to downsize their electronics, making nanotechnology college courses a hot item at this time. The possibilities are endless for degreed engineers.

      Online Schools Offering Accredited Mechanical Engineer Degree Programs

      There are a number of ways to obtain a Mechanical Engineering degree, and many opportunities exist online. As the growth of the Internet has forced more businesses to take a hard look at what they were doing, this idea has also trickled down to the college level.

      More and higher schools of learning are offering classes and degree programs this way to save costs; allow greater flexibility with scheduling, and to meet the needs of the non-traditional student. Since more industries are constantly evolving; with layoffs at an all time high, it makes perfect sense to cater to those students that are seeking a new degree, or have to be re-trained for a second career.

      An online college is the ideal fit for these individuals, and the majority of universities are coming to this realization also. In order to get a Mechanical Engineering degree from an online university, it is prudent to find a school that is offering the right program that will also fit the user’s needs. Sometimes that means a regular meeting for group forum discussion. There are other colleges that require semi-frequent trips to campus for an update.

      A student has to not only complete the requirements of the coursework, but also gain the right experience as well. A number of accredited schools are now focused on offering the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering on the Internet.

      These include the University of Illinois, and Purdue University, just to name a few. In addition, other schools include:

      • University of Idaho
      • Florida Institute of Technology
      • Old Dominion University

      Top Colleges Universities Offering Campus-based Mechanical Engineer Degrees

      There is also the traditional way of earning the Mechanical Engineering degree, and that involves attending classes on campus, sitting in lectures, performing laboratory assignments, and meeting with professors. This can be troublesome for some students who aren’t disciplined enough to get up for an early morning class, but it does force the undergraduate to attend classes on a regular basis, because the information is only available during the scheduled lecture.

      Also, being able to meet with the instructor during normal office hours and sit face to face, is a definite advantage to the student who is in a quandary over a homework assignment.

      For those individuals interested in obtaining a degree in Mechanical Engineering from a campus location, there are several options.

      Such famous schools as MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Stanford University, Georgia Institute of Technology, UC Berkeley, University of Michigan, Purdue University and the University of Minnesota are just a small sampling of the choices that currently are available to anyone wishing to study in this area. They have been consistently ranked in the top 5% of all universities offering this type of degree program.

      It is important also to make sure that any of the online schools being considered are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). All of the colleges that carry this designation have been approved for the specific program offered. They have all passed at least the minimum standards, and have been through the rigorous process performed by ABET.

      These designations will help on a job application or resume, since the reputation of a quality engineering school is greatly preceded by the resume being submitted. It may be the best choice for the student right out of high school.

      Famous Mechanical Engineering Students

      There have been a number of famous people who have studied mechanical engineering down through the years. They come from all walks of life and many of the names are surprising – not because of the degree they obtained, but the field that they ended up being successful in later in life. There have been a number of astronauts who studied mechanical engineering as undergraduates.

      These include such men as Mike Massimino, PhD one of the astronauts, who fixed the Hubble telescope, and Rich Husband, who was one of the Columbia astronauts. Other notable names from the automotive world with this type of degree are Henry Ford (pictured right), inventor of the production line for automobiles.

      Felix Wankel, inventor of the Wankel Rotary Engine, and Rudolf Diesel, who invented the diesel engine. There are even 2 NASCAR drivers in this group: Ryan Newman and Ashton Lewis.

      Some other famous inventors who started out as Mechanical Engineers are Willis Carrier – invented the first air conditioning system, Nikola Tesla, a Serbian Physicist who developed many ideas relating to electricity and power, Eli Whitney – the cotton gin pioneer and Alfred Hitchcock, the famous film director.

      Perhaps the man with the most influence and having the greatest impact on industry was James Watt, who developed the first steam engine, and helped to replace the horse as the method of getting work done. He is widely considered by many to be the father of mechanical engineering.

      There is no shortage of ways to use this degree, as evidence by the number of successful men previously mentioned. According to the September 16-17, 2006 edition of the Wall Street Journal s Weekend Edition, about 20% of the CEO s of the top US companies have engineering degrees. Any student serious considering a career in industry should make every effort to learn more about the opportunities afforded to them with a Mechanical Engineering degree.

      One of the best types of degrees to have in any economy is that of a Mechanical Engineer. There is the need for this type of individual in every industry, and trained persons can expect to find steady employment at all times. With the variety of skills learned, they can easily be applied to every sector of the marketplace; whether it is automotive, manufacturing, research and development, or technology.

      The outlook is bright, with most graduates landing a full time position right out of school. Many students choose to continue their education with a Master’s degree that specializes in one area, leading to expert status, and the potential to earn more money.
