Special Notes

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

Overview

Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of civil and environmental engineering with science. 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. Studies in Science may be chosen from biological sciences, chemistry, geology, physics and mathematics. Through the science program, students learn a number of transferable skills including analytical methods, laboratory and field techniques, information technology skills, teamwork, initiative and the ability to communicate and cooperate with people from a range of backgrounds and expertise.
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 Science is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.
