Why study a civil engineering course?
Civil engineers are creative, curious, analytical and detail-orientated. Graduates trained in civil engineering can specialise in construction, environmental and transport engineering, or managing people and projects.
Choose our Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) and you’ll be prepared to work in the design, construction and maintenance of almost all basic types of contemporary infrastructure, including bridges, multi-storey buildings, highways, railways, tunnels, airports, water supply and waste collection systems.
