Civil engineers are responsible for the physical infrastructure that enables modern societies to function. Buildings, highways and railways, tunnels, airports, power generation facilities and harbour facilities are all designed, built and managed by civil engineers. UON educate engineers to meet the global challenges of the future. Students could engineer energy-efficient buildings using the latest nano-materials, or help develop sustainable and resilient infrastructure in developing countries. They might design Australia's first high-speed train network to connect communities and reduce carbon emissions. They could even build a revolutionary water recycling plant to tackle water security issues.
