This double degree provides an excellent blend of civil and construction engineering fundamentals combined with the practical skills essential to begin effective professional practice immediately on graduation.
In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.
In the first two years of this course you will develop the basic scientific, mathematical and practical skills necessary for later use in civil engineering design and construction. Your third year will include applied engineering subjects in structural analysis and design, materials, geotechnical engineering, construction engineering, hydraulics and professional practice.
In your final year you will explore subjects related to construction management for large civil engineering projects including construction control, industrial relations, contract law, cost estimation and finance. You’ll also undertake further study in a range of specialist options, such as environmental engineering, transportation, public health engineering and advanced structural design. Prior to graduation, you will complete at least 12 weeks of engineering work experience during your vacations.
The mining component develops you as an engineer, who looks after the planning, design and operation of a mine. This double degree will provide you with comprehensive knowledge in a broad range of science and technology areas, including geology, electrical, civil and mechanical engineering, surveying, computing and environmental science. You will pay specific attention to aspects concerned with conservation of the environment, health and safety, ventilation, pollution and management of both people and resources. During your course you will complete a Senior First Aid Certificate and undertake fieldtrips to gain industrial experience to ensure you are job-ready upon graduation.
To satisfy professional requirements, students must complete at least 12 weeks or equivalent of exposure to professional engineering practice. This requirement can be met by appropriate work experience or through a combination of technical and non-technical activities. Students must demonstrate that they have met these requirements by using a formal Log Book to record their professional experiences during the period of their degree study.
Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.
