The Master of Engineering (Civil) is designed to increase your level of knowledge and understanding in many different areas of civil engineering. It will prepare you for a career in planning, design and maintenance of infrastructure such as the built environment, water resources, mining and transport.
Civil engineers plan, design, build and maintain a wide variety of physical infrastructure such as bridges, buildings, airports, roads, railways, ports, mines, water and wastewater supply, treatment and reuse systems. They also help to maintain sustainable natural environments. The solutions developed by civil engineers must take into consideration social, environmental and financial constraints.
The coursework has been designed to provide graduates with a strong foundation in both the theoretical and practical aspects of civil engineering, including an understanding of advanced civil practices; the social, economic, cultural and environmental aspects of civil engineering; and professional and ethical responsibilities.
You will learn to critically analyse and evaluate information and solve civil engineering problems, work and interact professionally, and undertake research in civil engineering and/or relevant areas.
