MDDU-CCOEN v.1 Civil and Construction Engineering Double Degree Major (BEng/BCom)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
Civil Engineering involves the application of basic scientific and technological principles to the design and construction of facilities necessary for the welfare of the community. It is concerned with such projects as railways, harbours and docks, road systems, bridges, water supply and wastewater treatment, dams, tunnels and underground construction, power projects, offshore structures, and commercial and industrial buildings. The effective practice of civil engineering necessitates a strong background in the mathematical and physical sciences, an understanding of the properties of construction materials such as steel, concrete and natural aggregates and an ability to evaluate the performance of structures under variable forms of loading. Many engineering projects require a close working relationship with other groups - planners, architects, environmental scientists - and an appreciation of the impact of civil works on society in terms of both social obligations and finance. The civil engineer also needs training in the management of resources, equipment, materials and finance.
Graduates fulfil the stage one competencies stipulated by Engineers Australia (EAust) as the pathway to chartered engineer status (CPEng).
Major/Stream Learning Outcomes
A graduate of this course can:
1. integrate knowledge from all Civil and Construction Engineering sub-disciplines to design and construct civil engineering works
2. integrate learning with client requirements to produce feasible practical, sustainable solutions
3. acquire and evaluate information to facilitate design and construction of civil engineering works
4. communicate effectively with plans and reports to all stakeholders
5. identify and use suitable technologies to complete civil engineering works successfully
6. continually extend and build on professional understanding and skills acquired during the undergraduate learning
7. practise civil engineering with a global perspective and appropriate international standards
8. recognize the impact of cultural and environmental diversity in implementing civil engineering works
9. demonstrate leadership, professional behaviour and ethical practice in the context of civil engineering projects
