• The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Civil Engineering
    equips students with the relevant skills and knowledge to
    provide a range of professional civil engineering services in
    regional, national and international environments. The course
    prepares graduates for work involving the planning, design,
    construction and maintenance of critical civil engineering
    infrastructure such as buildings, roads, bridges, dams,
    pipelines, transport systems, and water supply and waste
    water treatment facilities.
    The course is structured around the 16 key competencies
    identified by Engineers Australia as essential to the graduating
    engineer. These competencies are broadly grouped into:
    knowledge and skills, application, personal and professional
    Students develop core theoretical knowledge and skills vital
    to the engineering profession and the ability to apply these in
    the most relevant applications.
    The course is strongly focused on project engineering from
    first year through to the final year, with an emphasis on
    critical issues for modern engineers such as professional
    ethics, sustainability, conflict resolution and negotiation. All
    students undertake a full-year unit in engineering research
    (thesis unit) in their final year, which enables them to explore
    the frontiers of engineering development and contribute to
    new knowledge in their chosen field.

    Major areas of study
    Students have the option to undertake a general course
    of study or select an eight-unit major in Environmental
    Students taking the general course of study gain knowledge
    and expertise across the breadth of disciplines encompassed
    by civil engineering, including construction, project
    management, hydraulic engineering, water and wastewater
    engineering, geotechnical engineering, traffic and transport
    engineering, and environmental engineering.
    The Environmental Engineering major prepares students
    with the scientific knowledge and engineering skills needed
    to understand and assess the impact of an engineering
    project on the environment. This enables graduates to
    develop sustainable and ethical systems that optimise the
    relationship between human activities and the natural and
    built environments.

    Professional recognition
    The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Civil Engineering
    degree is provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia, and
    full accreditation will be sought in 2018. Engineers Australia is
    the professional body representing engineering in Australia.
    Accreditation of the course by Engineers Australia enables
    a graduate’s qualification to be formally recognised in many
    different countries throughout the world in accordance with
    the Washington Accord, an international agreement governing
    recognition of engineering qualifications and professional
