Overview

Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Civil Engineering)

The Bachelor of Engineering Honours (Civil) will develop your comprehensive ability to plan, design and test structures within the built and natural environments.

 A suite of embedded professional skills will equip you to contribute to the infrastructure that improves lives in Australia and worldwide.

As a civil engineering student, you will learn from leading experts about how to manage the design and construction of crucial modern infrastructure, including buildings, roads, transport and railways, bridges, tunnels, dams and ports, as well as systems for managing water, irrigation, sewage and floodwaters. 

Complementing this technical knowledge will be a range of professional skills in management, finance and problem-solving.

Throughout this four-year degree, you will study a series of core units as you master civil engineering foundations before specialising in an optional major. 

A surveying camp will allow you to develop your technical skills in a practical, team-based environment in your second year.

In your fourth year, you will undertake further specialised civil engineering subjects and complete an embedded honours thesis. It enables you to design a research project in an area that interests you.

All students in the Bachelor Engineering Honours undertake enhanced foundation studies in data and computation and a sequence of real-world project units throughout their degree, enabling them to apply technical knowledge in practice.

As part of your degree, you will undertake the award-winning Professional Engagement Program enabling you to change your approach to learning through self-reflection and extra-curricular activities throughout your degree.

The specialisations available in this degree are:

  • Construction Management
  • Environmental Fluids
  • Geotechnical
  • Humanitarian Engineering
  • Integrated Building Engineering
  • Structures
  • Transport
