Program overview

At least half of the honours year involves a major project. Projects are generally supported by industry clients, or based in a research centre like our Centre for Water Management & Reuse. In the compulsory 12-week industry placement students get to use the knowledge and skills they've learned in a work environment. During this program students will learn to develop infrastructure such as bridges, buildings, airports, roads, railways and water systems, prepare for the workplace with 12 weeks’ industry experience, conduct an industry-related major project and an in-class design project that models industry practice, learn in industry-standard specialist facilities, and use high-tech testing and computer modelling equipment.
