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

University of Newcastle

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00109J

The Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Surveying (Honours) provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in two areas of engineering and complete two awards. A combined degree program offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills. 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. In the combined program, students will broaden their engineering expertise to open up a wider range of career opportunities. The surveying engineering courses will allow students to specialise in the measurement, management, analysis and display of spatial information describing the Earth and its physical features.

Structure

The Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) / Bachelor of Surveying (Honours) is a 5 year program comprising 400 units, of which 380 units are core courses and 20 units are directed courses. Students will have the opportunity to undertake an industry related project in their final year and must also complete 12 weeks of industrial experience throughout the program. A graded honours classification is awarded on the basis of superior performance attained throughout the program.

Subjects

  • Civil engineering
  • Surveying engineering

Standard entry requirements

Year 12 or equivalent. Alternative entry pathways may include approved TAFE studies, preparatory programs such as Newstep, Open Foundation or Tertiary Preparation Certificate. Assumed knowledge: HSC Mathematics (Band 5 or above) or equivalent. One science-related subject would also be an advantage (Physics or Chemistry preferred). Applicants who have achieved less than Mathematics Band 5 may be admitted to the program but may need to complete additional study to successfully complete the requirements of the program. Students who have completed HSC Mathematics General 2 may be admitted to the program but can expect to undertake additional studies to successfully complete the requirements of the program.
