Overview
Through this double degree program students can combine the concepts of civil engineering with mathematical and computer sciences. 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 civil engineering students will complete a common first year before continuing into their discipline, majors and/or a choice of thematic minors. The mathematical and computer sciences program includes a range of mathematics, statistics and computer science courses.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) with Bachelor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard fulltime duration of 5 years. This program is accredited by Engineers Australia and graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
Program Learning Outcomes
 Contribute to the design of creative, sustainable, economic and safe solutions, which satisfy the objectives of clients and stakeholders.
 Demonstrate a broad, theorybased understanding of the mathematical, natural and physical sciences underpinning engineering practice, and evaluate the differences between theoretical and applied system behaviour.
 Demonstrate a conceptual understanding of the computer and information sciences that underpin engineering practice.
 Demonstrate a substantial and contemporary bodyofknowledge of engineering methods, tools and processes for a specific discipline, complemented by relevant knowledge from related disciplines.
 Professionally and ethically conduct themselves and their work, respecting the communities and cultural norms within which that work is carried out.
 Communicate objectively and effectively, in written and oral forms, to lay and expert audiences.
 Apply critical and independent thinking to make sound judgements, based on evidence, theory and logical reasoning.
 Maintain and develop knowledge of advancements in engineering practice and research in the specific discipline, and apply this knowledge innovatively when devising solutions.
