The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil and Construction Management) uses an industry focused, project-based teaching and learning approach to provide professional civil engineers with the construction and project management skills needed for future leadership of diverse, interdisciplinary teams undertaking design and construction projects that require solutions to complex problems in a socially and culturally appropriate manner.

Content & Structure

The program consists of a common first year across all Engineering disciplines. The first two years of the program provide an introduction to the main areas available in civil engineering, a broad base in engineering, science, and maths, as well as other skills such as design, problem solving, team work and communication that are essential for professional practice as an engineer. In third year students focus in detail on construction management, water and geotechnical engineering - and their interaction with the environment. Third year continues the professional practice development through a focus on business management knowledge required by engineers. Half of fourth year is devoted to major projects, both design and research, with the remainder being specialist courses. Industry internship options are also available.
