Course Overview

Career Opportunities

Civil engineers work in a range of settings, including traffic and transport, humanitarian organisations, engineering design, government authorities, water supply and management agencies, construction companies, natural resource management organisations, consulting engineering companies, mining companies, irrigation authorities, research organisations and in tertiary education.

Professional Recognition

This course is fully accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of Professional Engineer. Courses accredited by Engineers Australia at this level are recognised in many different countries worldwide through the Washington Accord, an international agreement governing recognition of engineering qualifications and professional competence.

Professional Placement

As part of this course, students are required to undertake a compulsory 60-day industry experience unit in a relevant engineering role. 
 
Industry experience enables students to gain experience in applying their knowledge and skills to engineering problems within a real work environment, and to make valuable contacts within the civil engineering industry. Students typically undertake one or more work placements with an organisation conducting work related to civil engineering practice. The nature of both the work and the employer can vary widely, from office-based engineering design with a small consultancy or local council to on-site project work with a major construction company.

Major Areas of Study

Students have the option to undertake a general course of study or select an eight-unit major in Environmental Engineering. 
 
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.

Assessment methods

Assessment items vary for each unit. They include numerical calculations, written reports, oral presentations and exams. The assessment tasks are based around in-class learning activities, tutorial exercises, laboratory experiments, independent research activities, and project-based scenarios. Students undertake assessment tasks both individually and within teams with other students.

Teaching methods

On-campus students experience a variety of teaching approaches including lectures, tutorials, laboratory classes, field trips, online activities and video-linked or podcast virtual classes. The method of teaching may vary from unit to unit.
