Civil Systems

    Major overview


    Civil engineers have a significant impact on the world, meeting the challenges of urban development, restoring infrastructure after disasters and building structures to withstand extreme conditions.

    The Civil Systems major provides the foundation of understanding planning, design and construction of essential infrastructure and services in the built environment, including bridges, tunnels, transport systems, water supply, drainage, ports and harbors.

    Follow this major through to the Master of Engineering (Civil), Master of Engineering (Civil with Business) or Master of Engineering (Structural) and you will learn how planning, design and construction can interact with the natural and social environment to meet society’s needs.

    You can study this major in the Bachelor of Design or the Bachelor of Science

    If you continue this major through to the Master of Engineering (Civil), you will be eligible for professional accreditation as an engineer as our Engineering degrees are professionally recognised under two major accreditation frameworks — EUR-ACE® and the Washington Accord (through Engineers Australia). Graduates can work as chartered professional engineers throughout Europe, and as professional engineers in the 17 countries of the Washington Accord.
