AIB and AIQS Requirements for Graduates
The AIB (Australian Institute of Building) and AIQS (Australian Institute of Quantity Surveyors) have requirements and
expectations for graduates from an accredited course. These have been shown below to assist the student as to the importance
placed on generic skills by the accrediting bodies. These can also be found on their respective websites www.aib.org.au and
www.aiqs.com.au. Further information regarding the building and quantity surveying professions is also available on these websites
and represent a valuable source of information.
AIB Benchmark Standards for Graduates

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in a penalty of 5% reduced marks from the total available, per calendar day late. An assignment submitted over 7 days late will not be accepted.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
This is an intensive unit. Students who do not attend all classes will be at a strong disadvantage in terms of learning outcomes. It may be difficult to pass the unit without attending.
Required IT skills
Students should have a knowledge of CAD, CostX, Microsoft Project and other basic software used in Building and Construction.
Work placement, internships or practicums
