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 facilities 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 competencies identified by Engineers Australia as being essential to the graduating engineer. These competencies are broadly grouped into: knowledge and skills, application, personal and professional skills.
Throughout the course, students develop core theoretical knowledge and skills vital to the civil engineering profession and the ability to apply these in the most relevant software applications applicable to engineers today.
