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 engineering with science. 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. Science majors 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.
 
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)/ Bachelor of Science 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.

Conditions

Condition of enrolment
Interruption of program: Students must apply for permission from the Executive Dean or delegate before taking a Leave of Absence. Any extension of the leave without approval will result in the loss of place in the program but an application may be made to be re-admitted to the program subject to the admission procedures in place at the time.
