Civil engineers design and construct our infrastructure. They are key members of teams involved in the design and construction of buildings, bridges, roads, highways, harbours, dams, irrigation and water supplies, municipal infrastructure and other large projects.
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 central to this process.
In this course you will develop scientific, mathematical and practical skills to solve engineering problems – first in the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY) and then by developing specific civil engineering attributes.
In your third year you’ll apply these skills in structural analysis and design, geotechnical engineering, transportation engineering, hydraulics, construction and professional practice.
In your final year, you’ll integrate your design, construction and management skills in large civil engineering projects and undertake a major research project. Project topics include structural integrity, construction materials science or pavement design, water quality, water systems, and construction management applications.
