Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours)

University Of The Sunshine Coast

Program Overview

Design and build the future. Civil engineers plan, design, build and maintain the infrastructure we rely on as a civilisation – including buildings, roads, and water systems. This program develops practical skills in engineering design, project management and sustainability, qualifying you to work as a civil engineer in Australia and overseas.

In this program you will:

  • Learn to use mathematical and scientific principles to solve a range of technical problems

  • Get hands-on experience through 12 weeks of work experience

  • A wide range of minors including climate change and coastal zone studies, management for engineers, mechatronic engineering and electrical and electronic engineering

  • A major final-year research project on a topic of your choice

  • Learn from industry professionals through guest lectures that expose you to current engineering professional practice

  • Recreate interactive real-life scenarios in USC's state-of-the-art visualisation studio and dedicated engineering laboratories
