This course combines studies in civil engineering with selected majors in science. The course aims to produce multi-skilled graduates capable of applying a diverse range of knowledge and abilities to the analysis and solution of problems and to decision-making, as well as to provide a course of study that enables students to meet the educational entry requirements of appropriate professional associations in engineering and science. This course also aims to make available, especially to residents of central and northern Victoria, a qualification combining the strengths of a degree in civil engineering with specialised studies in recognised science disciplines. Career opportunities - As well as career opportunities associated with each of the single degrees, double degree graduates will be able to access areas of employment that require expertise in both civil engineering and science. The three Essentials - Global Citizenship, Innovation & Entrepreneurship and Sustainability Thinking are specialist areas designed to give you an edge with employers. Essentials will enable you to adapt your knowledge and skills to new contexts in a rapidly changing world. Subjects addressing the Essentials are part of all undergraduate La Trobe degrees and can be identified in the subject search by distinct icons. The list of approved subjects can be found on the Essentials webpage. This double degree is of five and a half years full-time duration and requires the completion of 630 credit points overall. Students may complete this double degree in five years as part of an accelerated study program. In order to be eligible for admission to the two degrees, a student must have completed at least 42 subjects, each of 15 credit points, giving a total of 630 credit points. Students will be encouraged to undertake five subjects in each semester in the first year (150 credit points) and four subjects each semester in later years (120 credit points per year). This provides flexibility in course planning by allowing students to take extra subjects in the fourth and fifth years of the course if necessary.
