Overview

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil and Structural)

In your first year, you will develop a strong, general foundation in engineering before commencing your civil engineering courses in your second year. 

During your third year, you will start taking introductory structural engineering courses, such as structural analysis and steel and timber design. 

Your final year primarily focused on specialised structural courses, including earthquake and masonry engineering and cold-formed steel design.

At least half of your honours year will involve a major project. 

Projects are generally supported by industry clients or based in a research area like the Sustainable Infrastructure and Resource Management concentration. 

UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program allows you to apply the skills and knowledge you've acquired throughout your degree in real-world settings.

You will also undertake the Engineering Capstone Experience course with other engineering students. 

This course will see you complete real projects provided by industry, with industrial representatives acting as your clients. 

You will work through the real-life stages of a project, from developing a tender to feasibility, concept development and detailed design. 

See examples of student projects: Project 1 and Project 2.

This degree focuses on the design and construction of buildings and structures, using materials including concrete, masonry, timber and steel. 

In your studies, you will develop the skills to manage the social, environmental and financial components of construction projects. 

You will get hands-on experience and gain knowledge in areas such as:

  • road design and traffic management
  • geospatial science for engineers
  • soil mechanics
  • geotechnical engineering

Flexible entry pathways and common core subjects mean that you can change your specialisation based on your interests.
