Environmental Engineering Systems


This major will give you the fundamental tools from science and mathematics that you’ll need to understand biophysical systems.

You’ll use what you’ve learned to solve complex problems involving the design and operation of infrastructure, and learn how to manage environmental risks. The course has a strong focus on sustainability and project management.

Your major structure

You’ll complete this major as part of a Bachelor of Science degree. You can study engineering subjects from your first year with us, and you’ll have plenty of flexibility to explore other interests too.

In your first and second years you’ll complete subjects that are prerequisites for your major, including mathematics, biology, earth science, and foundational engineering subjects.

In your third year, you will complete 50 points (four subjects) of deep and specialised study in environmental engineering systems.

Throughout your degree you will also take science elective subjects and breadth (non-science) subjects, in addition to your major subjects and prerequisites.
