Combining theory and on-the-job training, this four-year Honours degree gives you the skills to find creative solutions to engineering challenges. Our focus is on balancing industry-integrated learning with theory. You'll develop high-level engineering skills in sustainable infrastructure, civil construction, water resources, structural engineering and surveying, along with knowledge of Computer Aided Design. Your studies will teach you how to plan and manage large-scale projects, test your own construction ideas and work as a team. You'll examine the environmental challenges facing today's construction industry, and participate in a research subject to refine your knowledge of areas like sustainability, irrigation in urban environments and advances in concrete technologies. Students not undertaking the Work Integrated Learning subject (EMS4WIL) are required to complete at least 12 weeks certified practical experience under the guidance of an experienced engineer before being deemed to have completed the course and therefore qualify to graduate. This is preferably undertaken during the annual vacation following the third year of the course but may be done at the conclusion of the final year. International students must undertake their experience during the annual vacation following the third year. It may be done at the conclusion of final year but must be completed before the student's visa expiry date. Visa expiry dates may not be extended for the sole purpose of completing practical experience. International applicants are advised to ensure they have the correct visa to undertake this work placement.
