    The Master of Engineering (Environmental) is a 2–3 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 Environmental Engineering Systems major in your bachelor’s degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive creditfor these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year.

    Second and third year

    In the second and third year of the program (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As an environmental engineering student you will be guided in designing and building sustainable solutions to environmental problems, and focus on climate change, water scarcity and bushfire management.

    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

    Build your skills and work experience through our academically credited Internship subject. Running over 10–15 weeks, you could intern for a catchment management, conservation and natural resources, resource planning and management or a waste and water organisation.

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

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

    Infrastructure Engineering Research project

    Work alongside our world-leading environmental engineering researchers in our Infrastructure Engineering Research Project subject. Work on an industry partnered project, or pursue your own exploratory research. You’ll have the opportunity to present the findings to the public at our annual engineering showcase, the Endeavour Engineering and IT Exhibition.

    Integrated Design 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. Alternatively, you could learn how to design civil infrastructure including railway stations, trains, airports and stadiums with our Integrated Design – Civil subject.
