About the course
As a civil engineer you’ll help create the built environment around us. Bridges, airports, highways, buildings and railways present their own problems and challenges and need efficient and effective engineering solutions. Youll learn the fundamentals of civil engineering and develop skills in structural analysis, transport systems, ground engineering, water resource management and transport planning. Putting these skills into practice on a work placement youll gain industry insights from site visits, a week-long survey camp, an overseas field trip and input from engineering companies.n year one you will learn the principles of Civil Engineering via an introduction to Materials, Structural Analysis, Construction Process and methods of Engineering Communication including use of industry standard software platforms. The formative stages of your studies are specific to Civil Engineering and are not taught as part of a common first and second year. All areas are underpinned by developing competency in relevant mathematical techniques and approaches to problem solving. Once an understanding of the fundamental principles of Civil Engineering has been established, you will then progress on to more advance areas of Structural Design, Geotechnics, Fluid Mechanics and Transportation Engineering. You will implement practical solutions across a range of applied applications and develop your skills in lateral problem solving and innovative thinking. In your final year of study you will develop, manage and undertake a program of independent investigation under the guidance of an associated research supervisor. You will also work as part of a team to fulfil a client’s project brief relating to the development of a substantial piece of Built Environment Infrastructure – the successful fulfillment of this brief will require you to utilize all of the skills developed over the course of your studies with us.
