What will I learn?

Be the change

Be the change you want to see in the world, with the help of USQ’s Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental). Study while you work, either online or on-campus, and have you the flexibility to adapt your study to your life.

Why Environmental?

USQ’s lecturers will provide you with the first-class knowledge and skills needed to prepare you to study and change the effects of major environmental issues and work in some of the most influential environmental sectors. Plan, design and implement change in the infrastructure of land development and rehabilitation, water and soil management and create innovative solutions to complex problems. With your skills and knowledge, a wide variety of careers will be available to you after you graduate as a qualified Professional Engineer, Environmental Engineer or Natural Resource Manager.

Apply your knowledge through practical work experience and an exciting final year research project that will give you hands-on industry experience. Previous students have produced projects in the fields of an investigation into obtaining energy for abattoir wastewater, the revised field procedure for surface irrigation evaluation and the ranking of potential emissions reducing technologies for businesses.

Expand your field of study

You have an opportunity to increase your knowledge further and combine your major studies in Environmental Engineering with a four-unit minor in Management, Climatology or Geographic Information Systems.

Professional accreditation

With the experience you will gain from working in the field, you may apply for chartered status as a Professional Engineer. You will also have the opportunity to work overseas, with your accreditation recognized in those countries that are signatories to the Washington Accord.
