At the University of Newcastle they educate engineers to meet the global challenges of the future. You’ll learn to engineer energy-efficient buildings using the latest nano-materials and, help develop sustainable and resilient infrastructure in developing countries. Perhaps your study will lead you to design Australia’s first high-speed train network to connect communities and reduce carbon emissions. Your degree could even build a revolutionary water recycling plant to tackle water security issues.
What is civil engineering? Civil engineers are responsible for the physical infrastructure that enables modern societies to function. As a civil engineering student you will study buildings, highways and railways, tunnels, airports, power generation facilities and harbor facilities. Your courses will focus on preparing you to design, build and manage these structures as a fully qualified civil engineer.
Build critical technical engineering skills by studying courses in:
Connect with industry through guest lectures and interdisciplinary projects solving real world problems. Gain invaluable practical experience through your industry placement.
Become job-ready through Newcastle University’s professional practice courses. You’ll learn to tackle ‘wicked problems’ and develop essential workplace skills in finance, project management, sustainability, communication and entrepreneurism.
Diversify your skills and engineering degree with an elective pathway, a cluster of courses which can be used to:
