Objectives of the program

Civil engineering involves the planning, design, construction, supervision, management and maintenance of the infrastructure projects necessary for the functioning of our modern community. Civil engineering has been divided into a number of major fields including structural, geotechnical, water resources and transport. The modern civil engineer must also be capable of working on multidisciplinary projects. Graduates are employed as project managers, design engineers, construction managers, environmental engineers and engineering asset managers

The key objectives of the Civil and Infrastructure engineering program are:

  • To develop a sustainability framework for engineering decision making.
  • To develop the graduate capabilities of personal and professional development, sustainability, problem solving and decision making, technical competence, communication and teamwork.
  • To encourage collaboration as a powerful way of helping students to be more effective learners and of helping staff to be more effective teachers. ITeam-based project-based learning has been adopted as the dominant teaching method across the program.
  • To engage in year themes as a way of focusing attention on your changing needs at each year of our program. These themes are (i) connecting with who you are, the university and the profession, (ii) the big, theoretical ideas, (iii) real world applications and (iv) connecting to your future career, through specialisation and work placement.
  • To appreciation of different learning styles as a means of creating an inclusive teaching environment.
  • Use of online delivery facilities, supported by the Faculty’s Learning Development Unit. All courses are making use of the Learning Hub.
  • A more flexible program structure that will blend together the School’s main programs (Civil & Infrastructure, Chemical, Environmental) and articulate with TAFE programs and programs from the School of Property, Construction and Project Management and the Bachelor of Environmental Science.
