Environmental Engineering Systems

    Major overview


    As an environmental engineer, your job is to build sustainable solutions to environmental problems.

    In this major, you’ll learn about the complexities of natural systems and how they interact with the built environment by examining land use and management, salinity, water resources management, water quality and soil rehabilitation.

    Guest lectures and seminars by industry professionals are available to students, along with community project work and site visits that combine theory with practice.

    Follow this major through to the Master of Engineering (Environmental) and join our graduates alongside biologists, ecologists and resource managers to create a better, more efficient and more sustainable world.

    If you continue this major through to the Master of Engineering (Environmental), 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.
