Civil engineers give us the infrastructure that supports our lives. They design, construct and maintain our bridges, airports, roads, railways, water and waste supply.
This degree is strongly hands-on. In our state-of-the-art facilities you will apply engineering theory to real-world challenges. In your final year, you will complete a major industry-related research project and a design project.
You’ll learn in our industry-standard specialist facilities – such as the largest strong floor in the southern hemisphere and a 1200m long hydraulic testing facility – and use hi-tech testing and computer modelling equipment.
Graduate career-ready by completing the UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program and gain at least 450 hours of skills and competencies through a range of engagement activities such as placements, internships, guest lectures, industry panels, site visits, networking and events.
What you'll learn
In your first year you will develop a strong, general foundation in engineering. You’ll then move into your civil engineering major. In third year you have the option to major in civil, surveying, construction management, structural or business innovation.
At least half of your honours year involves a major project. Projects are generally supported by industry clients, or based in a research centre like the Scarce Resources and Circular Economy concentration. Our UniSA STEM Professional Practice Program allows you to apply the skills and knowledge you've acquired throughout your degree in real-world settings.
You will also have the opportunity to undertake a Civil Engineering Capstone Project where you will work on real projects provided by industry, with industrial representatives acting as your clients. You will work through the real-life stages of a project from developing a tender through to feasibility, concept development and detailed design. See examples of student projects: Project 1 and Project 2.
