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.

A Bachelor of Science will provide you with invaluable skills, including creative thinking, problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication skills. You can choose to study in disciplines such as aviation, chemistry, computer science, geography, mathematics, oceanography and physics.
