  • Objectives
    Civil engineering is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the human-made environment, including buildings, roads, bridges, tunnels, dams and other large physical structures. Areas of study within the Civil Engineering course include a foundation in physical and engineering sciences along with computer aided design, engineering materials, structural design and analysis, steel and concrete design, surveying, road design and construction, water supply engineering, construction technology and site management, and project management. The course focuses on the development of knowledge and skills relevant to professional engineering practice and, along with a sound theoretical base, includes strong elements of practical problem solving, team work and project development. As a result, as well as having multiple technical and transferable skill competencies, graduates will have strong analytical skills and the ability to lead complex projects. Graduates will have competencies in all major areas of civil engineering, and be able to participate in and lead complex multidisciplinary projects. Civil engineers have strong employment opportunities in many sectors of industry including road and transport, construction, mining and resource, public utilities, defence, and consulting.
  • Entry requirements
    Satisfactory performance in TEE Calculus or Applicable Mathematics, or equivalent, is required. TEE Physics is desirable. Students who have completed a TAFE Diploma or its equivalent in an allied engineering field may be admitted to a Bachelor of Engineering with advanced standing. Special admission requirements Note: Students who have not completed TEE Calculus or TEE Physics (or equivalent) will be required to complete bridging units during the first year of their studies.
