Courses Overview

What will I learn?
Civil engineers design and construct our infrastructure. Every structure that is on or in the ground is the work of civil engineers. They build bridges, roads, harbours, highways, dams, irrigation and water supplies, hydro-electric projects, tall buildings and other large structures.
As our built environment becomes increasingly complicated, ambitious construction projects can only be completed by teams of people with different skills, working together. The civil engineer is important in this process.
In your first two years, you will develop basic scientific, mathematic and practical skills, and learn how to use these skills to solve engineering problems, first in our Engineering Foundation Year and then by developing specific civil engineering attributes.
In your third year, you will learn to apply these skills in structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice.
In your final year, you will consolidate these engineering skills to the level of an engineering graduate. Specialty options include the environment, transport, public health or advanced structural design.
You will also need to complete at least 12 weeks of engineering work experience during the summer breaks in order to graduate from civil and construction engineering.
As part of a double degree, you can study the Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Construction Engineering) with either:
Bachelor of Commerce (Management) or
Bachelor of Science (Mining)
Professional recognition
Graduates fulfill the stage one competencies required by Engineers Australia (EAust) as the pathway to chartered-engineer status (CPEng).
Career opportunities
This course can help you become a:
Civil Engineer
Building Contractor
Why Civil and Construction Engineering?
Civil engineers are currently in very high demand and this trend is expected to remain long into the future.
This professional and practically-orientated course is highly prized by graduates and respected by professional engineers.
It is in effect two degrees, civil engineering and construction engineering, combined into one fully comprehensive course.
It gives a qualification that equips graduates to be work ready as soon as they graduate.
Upon graduation you may find employment with consulting engineers, large contractors, specialist subcontractors and government authorities who are working to meet the challenges of creating and maintaining our infrastructure.
Later in your career, you may choose to establish your own consultancy as an expert in your field. Civil and construction engineers have skills that are readily transferable between employers and they often find work internationally.
