What will I learn?

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.
