Program Code


Academic Year


Special Notes

These Program Rules should be read in conjunction with the University's policies (


This 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. The first two years of the program build a mathematical, scientific and engineering design foundation for the third and fourth years where studies include professional engineering courses, specialisations, communication and management courses and project work. The program includes studies in environmental economics and environmental law.
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) is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 4 years.
