Overview

Civil engineering focuses on the design and construction of facilities such as buildings, roads, bridges, airfields, and water supply and waste treatment facilities, and the associated planning and management of these projects. A degree in Civil Engineering will provide you with professional engineering design, construction, and management skills. You will have the opportunity to study the interaction between civil engineering and other disciplines, as well as the environmental impact of civil engineering works. You will study subjects such as engineering mechanics, computational problem-solving, programming, mathematics, physics, structural analysis, geotechnical design, cyber security, and hydrology and environmental engineering practice. You will spend at least 60 days gaining practical experience in the workplace and undertake a capstone research project in your final year.

How to apply

Applications for undergraduate study from domestic students (Australian citizens, permanent residents and New Zealand citizens) are processed by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

Visit the ‘Apply’ section of the UAC website and you can nominate up to five degrees in order of preference, with the first being your most desired degree and university.

On-time applications for admission usually close at the end of September each year for Term 1 admission. Late applications can be submitted, but a late fee will apply.

For study starting in Term 1, the majority of offers are made in December and January.

Visit the UAC website for key dates for admission outside of Term 1.
