Civil engineers design, construct, maintain and operate infrastructure for the benefit of society. You will acquire skills, knowledge and experience in mechanics; transport, traffic and road engineering; building structures and technology; design of concrete and masonry structures; bridge design and assessment; geomechanics; and hydrology.
This area of study entry applies to students commencing this course in 2018 and should be read in conjunction with the relevant course entry in the Handbook.
Any units listed for this area of study relate only to the 'Requirements' outlined in the component of any bachelors double degrees.
Unit codes that are not linked to their entry in the Handbook are not available for study in the current year.
