Curtin University

Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Construction Engineering) (Honours), Bachelor of Science (Mining)

Curtin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00301J

Civil Engineering involves the application of basic scientific and technological principles to the design and construction of facilities infrastructure for the welfare of the community. It is concerned with such projects as railways, harbours and docks, road systems, bridges, water supply and wastewater treatment, dams, tunnels and underground construction, power projects, offshore structures and commercial and industrial buildings. Many engineering projects require a close working relationship with other groups - other types of engineers, planners, architects and environmental scientists. More detailed knowledge of mining engineering will allow Civil graduates to gain a qualification that extends their expertise into the mining field and allow them to work in the mining industry.


Detailed information about the course structure is available through official Curtin pages:


  • The course develops skills and understanding in the fundamental aspects of engineering, specifically in the areas of structures, soils, water and construction, which provides the engineer with excellent skills and understanding of civil engineering and construction technology. The first two years are spent acquiring and developing basic knowledge and skills required for later use in design and construction. Scientific and mathematical topics are important, as are the fundamentals of materials behaviour, stress analysis and engineering drawing computing. Later civil studies take on more advanced study of structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering and hydraulics, construction management for large civil engineering projects, construction control, industrial relations, contract law, cost estimation and finance. A final year project is also undertaken. The BEng (Civil and Construction Engineering) component of the course can be awarded with honours to outstanding candidates. Mining engineering subjects include aspects of surface and underground mining, materials handling and mining methods. These build on and compliment earlier civil engineering studies.
