Undergraduate Certificate in Civil Construction (Engineering Management)

 

 

Course Summary

The course is designed for school leavers or those with a trade qualification who are looking to upskill and move into supervisory roles. It has a focus on developing technical and practical skills needed by industry. This course also provides a pathway to further study in civil engineering and the engineering profession.

Units of study

MAT10001 – Foundation Mathematics

Introduces students to and develops mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills required in a range of quantitatively based awards. To reinforce learning real world applications of mathematics will be utilised to develop students’ problem solving skills. Software associated with mathematical calculations, graphing and problem solving will be used.

ENO51001 – Introduction to Computer Aided Design and Drafting

Introduces students to basic computer aided design (CAD) processes. Students will learn how to use industry-standard two-dimensional CAD software to create engineering drawings to communicate simple engineering designs to a range of different end users.

ENG51001 – Construction Site Safety and Risk Management

Introduces students to basic computer aided design (CAD) processes. Students will learn how to use industry-standard two-dimensional CAD software to create engineering drawings to communicate simple engineering designs to a range of different end users.

EDU10010 – Language and Learning in your Discipline

Introduces students to learning skills for university study, communication skills, and reading and writing conventions within university discipline focused study. Students will develop understanding of, and skills in, digital literacies within SCU environment, a variety of academic writing genres relevant to their discipline of study, and principles and application of academic integrity.

ENG61004 ‐ Construction Materials - Soils

Introduces students to the geotechnical properties and behaviour of soils and their significance in civil and construction engineering.

ENG61002 – Environmental Sustainability in Construction

Introduces the environmental dimension of construction engineering. Students gain an understanding of the environmental systems and processes that can be impacted by construction activities and learn how to mitigate these impacts through engineering solutions and management practices.
