Special Notes

These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies).

Overview

Through this combined degree program students can combine the concepts of civil and environmental engineering with arts. The civil and environmental engineering program includes a core of civil engineering analysis and design, along with detailed studies in environmental science and engineering. It has a particular emphasis on water resources management and pollution control. Computer-based methods are used extensively in the program. In the arts program, students are able to specialise in areas of their choice by taking a ‘major’ (from one of 25 areas) and potentially a ‘minor’ (from a range of areas).
Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil and Environmental) / Bachelor of Arts is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.
