Take a lead role in designing and transforming your world. Through practical and industry experiences, this program develops the comprehensive ability to plan, design and test structures within the built and natural environments. A suite of embedded professional skills will equip you to contribute to infrastructure that improves lives in Australia and worldwide.
As a civil engineering student, you will learn from leading experts about how to manage the design and construction of crucial modern infrastructure, including buildings, roads, railways, bridges, tunnels, dams and ports, as well as systems for managing water, irrigation, sewage and floodwaters. Complementing this technical knowledge will be a range of professional skills in management, finance and problem solving.
Throughout this four-year degree you will study a series of core units as you master the foundations of civil engineering, before specialising in an optional major. In your second year, a surveying camp will allow you to develop your technical skills in a practical, team-based environment. In your third year a 12-week internship will provide you with invaluable industry experience and the opportunity to forge industry connections. In your fourth year you will undertake further specialised civil engineering subjects and complete an embedded honours thesis. It enables you to design a research project in an area that interests you.
Civil engineering is an innovative and diverse field, and the knowledge and experience you develop will allow you to pursue a career across construction, mining, consultancy, project management and public works.
You may become responsible for the design and construction of our transport systems, the design and management of our gas and water supply, sewerage systems, harbours, airports or railways
