Civil engineers design and construct our infrastructure. Every structure that is on or in the ground is the work of civil engineers. They build bridges, roads, harbours, highways, dams, irrigation and water supplies, hydro-electric projects, tall buildings and other large structures.

As our built environment becomes increasingly complicated, ambitious construction projects can only be completed by teams of people with different skills, working together. The civil engineer is important in this process.

In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.

In your first two years, you will develop basic scientific, mathematic and practical skills, and learn how to use these skills to solve engineering problems, first in our Engineering Foundation Year and then by developing specific civil engineering attributes. Third year students will learn to apply these skills in structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice.

In your final year, you will consolidate these engineering skills to the level of an engineering graduate. Speciality options include the environment, transport, public health or advanced structural design.

You will also need to complete at least 12 weeks of engineering work experience during the summer breaks in order to graduate from civil and construction engineering.

As part of a double degree, you can study the Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Construction Engineering) with either:
