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.
Why choose this degree?
A degree in Civil Engineering provides you with professional skills in design, construction and project management. Your degree will be accredited with Engineers Australia, which qualifies you to work as an engineer as soon as you graduate.
Who should choose this degree?
This degree gives you the skills to work in regulatory and planning roles with government agencies, specialist consulting firms, construction companies, and financial and management consultancies.
