Civil and structural engineers are responsible for the infrastructure and resources that keep our cities, towns and rural areas functioning. They focus on the design and construction of buildings, bridges and other structural components of an infrastructure. During this program students will develop the skills to manage the social, environmental and financial components of construction projects, focus on the design and construction of buildings and structures, including masonry and steel work, conduct an industry-related major project and an in-class design project that models industry practice. Students will also have the opportunity to undertake a Civil Engineering Design Project (CEDP). In the CEDP students will undertake real projects provided by industry, with industrial representatives acting as their clients. Students will work through the real-life stages of a project from developing a tender through to feasibility, concept development and detailed design.
