With strong population growth and significant changes in hydrology predicted for the coastal margin of Australia, there is an increasing demand for civil and environmental engineers with expertise in managing coastal and floodplain hydrology.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Coastal Systems Engineering is one of just a few specialist undergraduate professional engineering degrees in Australia to train industry-ready graduates for work in water engineering, coastal engineering and catchment management. The course addresses an increasing need for engineering expertise in these fields that is currently only available through on-the-job training and/or postgraduate qualifications.

Bachelor of Science with a major in Engineering

The Bachelor of Science provides a thorough grounding in science with the opportunity to specialise in engineering through a major. The Engineering major in the Bachelor of Science ensures students have a sound base of environmental engineering knowledge coupled with principles of physical and biological sciences.

Students complete an internship or an integrated project as part of their studies.

Course details

Our engineering programs are developed to be academically rigorous and industry-relevant. The civil and mechanical engineering degrees hold provisional accreditation with Engineers Australia.

Students are encouraged to join Engineers Australia as Student Members at no cost and can enjoy the rich variety of material and experiences on offer.

Teaching is delivered in the new science and engineering precinct at the Lismore campus, providing students with world-class equipped with state-of-the-art research and teaching equipment.

Students are required to gain essential industry experience throughout their engineering degree to prepare for employment after graduation.  Practical hands-on experience is also enhanced by field trips within the region and laboratory experiments.
