The University of Adelaide

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) / Bachelor of Science

The University of Adelaide

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00123M

This double degree program combines the disciplines of civil engineering and science allowing students to study towards two degrees simultaneously. Students study the concepts of civil engineering, and choose a science specialisation in biological sciences, chemistry, geology, physics or mathematics. With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the degree, the program can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately. At the end of the double degree, students graduate with two separate parchments; one for each degree. Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.


Students are required to complete 6 weeks of approved practical experience.
