Through this combined degree program students can study both civil engineering and arts. The civil engineering program will provide students with skills and knowledge in creating and maintaining the physical infrastructure of society while managing and conserving natural resources. All Engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their disciplines, majors and/or a choice of thematic minors. Students will also have the opportunity to choose from a range of Engineering thematic majors and minors. 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).
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)/ Bachelor of Arts is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia, and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
