Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours)

Federation University

From roads to railways, dams to harbours, houses to high-rises, it's civil engineers who are responsible for the design and construction of these assets. Civil engineers work with other experts like builders, architects and clients to ensure that structures are safe, economical and environmentally-sound. You'll study how to prevent flooding, design irrigation systems, and build multi-storeyed buildings. These skills may see you specialise in structural engineering, geotechnical engineering, transport engineering, water engineering or infrastructure management. But we'll also make sure you know how to work with others in the industry. You'll learn problem-solving skills, analytical skills and how to communicate effectively. You'll also understand the environmental, social and political aspects that will impact your career as a civil engineer. In the final year of the course you will have the opportunity to undertake a specialisation in structural or water and waste-water engineering. We are proud to offer an Industry Placement Program, providing the opportunity for our students to gain valuable and relevant workplace experience. Students take part in a two-year professional development program and receive up to 26 weeks placement and up to $15,000 industry scholarship. Discover more at www.federation.edu.au/ipp
