This double degree is designed to allow students to gain accreditation as both Engineers and Surveyors, which gives them flexibility in their future careers.

The Civil Engineering degree provides students with an excellent grounding in theory and applications, through the study of structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transport engineering and water engineering, as well as construction and management.

The Surveying component prepares graduates for opportunities in the various branches of Surveying and the numerous Spatial Information disciplines. To this end, the degree covers general scientific and IT principles, as well as specialised Surveying and Spatial Information topics.

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.

Alternative entry or pathways

The Faculty of Engineering Admission Scheme (FEAS) is a possible alternative admission pathway for the admission of domestic undergraduate students to UNSW Faculty of Engineering degree programs (including the BSc Computer Science and the BSc Food Science (Hons), who do not meet the published Guaranteed Entry selection rank requirement of 93.00. Visit the FEAS page for more info.
