Overview
This program will provide students with skills and knowledge in creating and maintaining the physical infrastructure of society while managing and conserving natural resources. The program has an emphasis on engineering problemsolving and design and analysis using modern, computerbased methods. All Engineering students will complete a common first year before branching out into their disciplines, majors and/or a choice of thematic minors. The first and second years of the program develop mathematics and science skills, with fundamental engineering and design courses. Third and fourth years enable students to specialise and focuses on project based learning. Students can choose to study majors in Construction Management, Environmental Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering, Structural Engineering and Water Systems. Students can also choose a range of thematic majors such as Defence Systems, Renewable Energy and Smart Technologies or minors in Entrepreneurship and Humanitarian Engineering.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) is an AQF Level 08 qualification with a standard fulltime duration of 4 years. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
