UNDERGRADUATE

Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Civil)

Civil engineers design, build and maintain the infrastructure that underpins modern life. They make sure bridges, roads, tunnels, railways, dams, airports and water channels meet the needs of our society in a sustainable way.

Degree Details

Our Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Civil) has a strong focus on design. You’ll learn from award-winning academics in state-of-the-art facilities as you:

  • study structural design and mechanics in depth
  • access new technologies forming the basis of future design practice
  • work on real-life projects
  • interact with professionals through an industry-led design practice course
  • complete an eight-week practical experience.

Students who as part of their studies take part in The Academy by Deloitte experience will have the benefit of undertaking a paid internship with Deloitte. This internship is designed to shape their business readiness through significant real-world client exposure, access to multiple networking opportunities and relevant professional training.

The program is highly regarded by employers. Demand for civil and structural engineers is high and is expected to grow as the need for sustainable infrastructure continues to increase.

Civil and structural engineers work in a variety of sectors including consulting engineering, construction, civil engineering, transport, communications infrastructure, and project management.

The University of Adelaide Careers Service prepares, inspires and empowers students to achieve successful career transitions and connect with industry.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) focuses on engineering problem-solving, and design and analysis, using modern, computer-based methods. The first and second years of the program develop mathematics and science skills, with fundamental engineering and design courses. Third and fourth years include professional engineering courses, specialisations, communication and management courses and project work within the main areas of structural, geotechnical and water engineering.

Students are required to complete eight weeks of approved practical experience.

Areas of Specialisation

Majors
A major is a great way to specialise and pursue topics of interest without narrowing future options. All graduates—irrespective of major—qualify as civil engineers and can pursue a career in any specialist fields within the profession. Majors are available across the following areas:

  • Renewable Energy
    The field of renewable energy is rapidly changing as the industry works to secure the world's energy future in a sustainable way. In this major, students are exposed to a broad range of topics and develop skills and knowledge to work with current and future energy infrastructure.
  • Environmental Engineering
    A major in Environmental Engineering allows students to hone in on the connections engineering has with environment, society and economy and learning how to create more sustainable and environmentally-friendly infrastructure for the future. Students are exposed to real-world environmental projects based on industry needs in areas of urban water, integrated river management, environmental protection and more.
  • Defence Systems
    South Australia is Australia's defence state and home to many important defence investments and industries. Students learn and apply the integrated systems approach at the core of civil engineering- invaluable when dealing with defence systems - and study courses across environment impact assessment, circular economies and strategic planning.
  • Smart Technologies
    This major focuses on smart technologies used in the planning, design, management and monitoring of integrated social, environmental, urban and technological systems. It covers computer modelling of infrastructure systems, smart water systems, and integrated/ strategic planning.
  • Construction Management
    Construction management engineers are involved in managing construction infrastructure, operations, and sites. Students study construction processes and practices including optimisation of scheduling, labour and plant, and sustainable construction practices.
  • Geotechnical Engineering
    Geotechnical engineers design foundations, dams, embankments, retaining walls, tunnels, and roads, and they undertake work relating to landslides, earthquakes and contaminated land remediation. The Geotechnical Engineering major explores the composition and nature of the ground and how it behaves when loaded or when water flows through it.
  • Structural Engineering
    Structural engineers understand the forces structures carry and how they deform under load. The Structural Engineering major offers the most courses devoted to structural engineering and mechanics design in South Australia. Students study traditional methods and materials such as steel, timber, concrete, aluminium, glass and masonry, and modern technologies and materials including composites and polymers.
  • Water Systems Engineering
    Water systems engineers are involved in the design, operation and optimisation of water and wastewater treatment facilities, reservoirs, dams, pipe networks, open channels and stormwater drainage. The Water Systems Engineering major covers the physical principles of water when it is stationary and when it is flowing, hydrology, and factors that cause floods.
