    What will I study?

    Overview

    The Master of Engineering (Civil) is a 2&ndsh;3 year degree (full-time) depending on your prior study.

    Course structure

    First year

    In your first year (or equivalent) you’ll complete foundation engineering subjects – tailored to students from a non-engineering background. If you’ve completed the Civil Systems major in your bachelor’s degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year.

    Second and third year

    In the second and third year (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a civil engineering student, you will focus on sustainable urban developments, environmental protection and the conservation of energy and water resources.

    You will learn structural, geotechnical, hydraulic and transportation engineering, as well as the application of these disciplines in ports and harbour, energy, sustainability and project management. The course has also been designed to give you a broader understanding of sustainability design and environmental processes.

    You’ll undertake an industry, design or research project and gain the skills and knowledge to practice as a professional engineer.

    Industry, design and research subjects

    Internship subject

    Enhance your skills and build work experience through our academically credited internship subject. Running over 10-15 weeks, you could intern for organisations in diverse applications including transport, infrastructure, property, electricity distribution, built environment, oil and gas, engineering and construction.

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

    You could work on a real-world innovation challenge with an industry mentor through our Creating Innovative Engineering subject.

    Research project

    Our research projects are supervised by world leading academics often in conjunction with industry. You can undertake a research project to solve a real-world problem as part of a team or on your own, and take the first steps towards a career in research.

    Design capstone subjects

    Be guided by experienced engineers in preparing an infrastructure design proposal in our Integrated Design – Infrastructure subject. Learn how to scope a design to meet society’s needs including suburban precincts, transport systems or water and renewable energy supply systems.

    You could also learn how to design major civil infrastructure projects including railway stations, trains, airports and stadiums with our Integrated Design – Civil subject.
