The Civil Engineering degree provides students with professional engineering design, construction and management skills. Attention is given both to the interaction between civil engineering and other disciplines and to the effect of civil engineering works on the environment.
 

If you select the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Civil at UNSW Canberra, you will study subjects such as engineering mechanics, computational problem solving, programming, mathematics, physics, structural analysis, geotechnical design, cyber security, and hydrology and environmental engineering practice. You will spend at least 60 days gaining practical engineering experience in the workplace during your degree, and you will undertake a group based integrated design project supervised by experienced engineers and client representatives and your own capstone research project in your final year. Your degree will also be accredited by Engineers Australia, which means that you will be qualified to begin working as an engineer within Australia (and many other countries) as soon as you graduate.

 
Present day civil engineering has maintained strong commonality with military engineering - the design and construction of facilities such as roads, bridges, airfields, buildings, water supply and waste treatment facilities, structures of all types, and the associated planning and management of projects. With a degree in Civil Engineering you could work in all fields of infrastructure development, from constructing skyscrapers through to design and building dams and bridges. You could also work in regulatory and planning roles with government agencies, specialist consulting firms (which vary in size from sole practitioners to major firms employing hundreds of engineers); construction companies; large public companies; government organisations which construct, manage and maintain public utilities; and financial and management consultancies.
 
Key features:

– UNSW Canberra is the only Australian university to equip engineering students with vocational level competencies, providing a practical foundation for professional Engineers.

– UNSW Canberra has purpose built workshops and facilities, with dedicated workspaces, workshop tools, machines and welding equipment.

– UNSW Canberra has the best university teacher-to-student ratio in Australia.

Aeronautical Engineering is the study of the design, development, manufacture, maintenance and control of machines or vehicles operating in the Earth's atmosphere or in outer space.

The design of a flight vehicle is complex and demands knowledge of many engineering disciplines such as aerodynamics, propulsion systems, structural design, materials, avionics, and stability control systems. Mainaining and operating a flight vehicle requires an understanding of materials, reliability and maintenance, structural analysis for necessary repairs, together with knowledge of disciplines within the design process.

If you select the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) Aeronautical at UNSW Canberra, you will study subjects such as engineering practice and design, computational problem solving, programming, mathematics, physics, engineering materials, aircraft and systems design, cyber security, and applied thermodynamics and propulsion. You will spend at least 60 days gaining practical engineering experience in the workplace during your degree, and you will undertake your own capstone research project in your final year. Your degree will also be accredited with Engineers Australia, which means that you will be qualified to begin working as an engineer as soon as you graduate.

As an Aeronautical Engineer you could work in aircraft, defence or space industries on the design and manufacture of light aircraft, passenger aircraft and military jets.  Engineering graduates also work in the airline industry on aircraft acquisitions, maintenance and configuration as well as manufacturing engineers working in manufacturing companies, process engineering, warehousng and logistics, business and operations modelling, and transport.

Key features:

– UNSW Canberra is the only Australian Engineering School to equip engineering students with vocational level competencies, providing a practical foundation for professional Engineers.

– UNSW Canberra has purpose built workshops and facilities, with dedicated workspaces, workshop tools, machines and welding equipment.

– UNSW Canberra has the best university teacher-to-student ratio in Australia.

Program Description

The Chief of Defence Force Honours Program in Engineering offers the opportunity for students entering UNSW Canberra with a high Entrance Rank, and who maintain a high level of performance in their studies, to undertake research in a range of disciplines that will develop their critical thinking and independent research skills beyond that available in the standard Engineering program.

In Year 1 of the program students will be engaged with cohort activities so as to develop and maintain their interest and continuing involvement in the program via invited lectures, seminars, general reading and social events.

Commencing in Year 2, the research projects, each offered as separate courses, will be supervised by academic staff from the same or closely related discipline. Students in the research courses may work independently or as part of a team, depending on the nature of the project undertaken, though all students will submit individual assessment. Final assessment, due by the end of semester, will be based on a written paper and an oral presentation.

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (CDF) in Aeronautical Engineering is of four years duration, and the degree may be awarded at Honours Class I, Honours Class II, Division I or Honours Class II, Division II. These Honours levels will be displayed on the final testamur. Candidates who do not achieve Honours Class 1 or 2 will receive a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (CDF) in Aeronautical Engineering with no honours level displayed.

The Program is accredited by Engineers Australia.
