Civil engineering is crucial to many aspects of our lives. It involves the planning, design, construction, maintenance and recycling of community facilities and infrastructure - from high-rise buildings, roads, bridges, railways and tunnels to power stations, airports, dams and harbours.
With skills and expertise in areas such as structures and geomechanics, responding to climate change, sustainability, water resources and clean energy, civil engineers tackle society's complex environmental and infrastructure challenges.

Project management is a dynamic profession that involves planning, coordinating, budgeting and evaluating large-scale projects, as well as managing the risks and the people involved. It is vital in helping organisations deliver new products, services and infrastructure as well as implement new systems and processes to effect change.
Our project management studies are based on a complex systems approach, which uses multidisciplinary theories and methods to investigate a particular phenomenon from a holistic viewpoint. They provide fundamental project management skills that can be applied across a wide range of sectors and industries.
