Deakin’s Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Honours) prepares you to be an industry-ready civil engineer capable of planning, designing, constructing and maintaining the built infrastructure systems that are necessary for our day-to-day lives including buildings, transportation networks, water and wastewater systems. Our student-centered learning environment means you’ll have access to world-class facilities and research opportunities.
This course covers the broad range of civil engineering disciplines related to structural, water, geotechnical, transportation engineering and civil engineering materials.
Throughout the course you’ll learn how to apply scientific and engineering principles to real-life engineering problems. You’ll learn how to address complex problems and develop innovative solutions that are beneficial to an organisation and the wider community. You will also gain an insight into the social, cultural, global and environmental responsibilities of the modern engineer while designing civil engineering infrastructures which meet international standards and encompass best practice. Furthermore, you will develop an understanding of the ethical considerations and contemporary technical issues in the practice of engineering.
As a graduate of this course, you’ll be highly sought-after by industry for your skills in engineering, innovation, leadership, project management and communication, as well as your capacity to astutely anticipate and tackle the unknown challenges of tomorrow.
Accredited by Engineers Australia, this course is recognised internationally and enables you to practice as a professional engineer in many countries around the world. With an international skills shortage in the civil engineering industry, Deakin graduates are in demand.
Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
