Environmental engineers work to protect and manage natural resources, air, water and land. The environmental engineering course is multidisciplinary, encompassing knowledge from various areas. Students undertake the Engineering First Year programme upon entry, along with students from other engineering disciplines, learning enabling skills required for engineering, such as engineering mathematics, mechanics and electrical systems. In the second and third years, the students learn the principles of environmental engineering, including areas such as geotechnical engineering, process principles, water engineering, transport phenomena, environmental impact assessment, contaminated land remediation, and others. In their final year, environmental engineering students learn to apply their knowledge with their research project, as well as employing their problem solving skills with case studies. A variety of options including wastewater treatment and palm oil and oleochemical processes will be available.

Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.

Admission criteria

What you need in order to get into this course. There are different pathway options depending on your level of work and education experience.

Select an option that best suits you:

You’re considered someone with work and life experience if:

You have left secondary education more than two years ago (i.e. who are not classified as recent secondary education applicants) and have not undertaken vocational education training (VET) or higher education study since then.

How we define ‘experience’
‘Experience’ includes a combination of factors sufficient to demonstrate readiness for higher education such as mature-age entry, professional experience whether completion of the Special Tertiary Admission Test (STAT) is required or not, community involvement or work experience. Applicants may have undertaken non-formal programs that have helped prepare them for tertiary education or are relevant to the proposed higher education field of study.
