Civil engineering covers the fields of structural design, geotechnical engineering and water engineering, together with infrastructure design and environmental engineering. Graduates will work in the fields of design, construction and management of engineering structures. Projects may cover residential and commercial buildings, highways and airports, water supply and sewerage schemes, etc. You may be an engineer in private industry, government departments, or in city, municipal or shire councils.

Key Program Structure

Qualification for this award requires the successful completion of 320 credit points, which include the units listed in the recommended sequence below.

Full-time Autumn Intake

* All students undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) are required to enrol in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary and undertake a readiness test at the beginning of their study.

The readiness test will be conducted at the beginning of the first semester of enrolment and the result will be used to determine whether a student will remain in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary or be transferred by the School to 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1.

Students remaining in 300743 Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary will be required to complete 200237 Mathematics for Engineers 1 during second semester and will be encouraged to complete 200238 Mathematics for Engineers 2 during the Summer session.
