Introduction

The Bachelor of Civil Engineering Technology, with a strong focus on civil engineering, is a paraprofessional
degree. Students completing the degree may enter practice as a qualified member of the civil engineering team. There are two further areas of study in the degree, students will complete the innovative and new Major in Building Information Modelling, which develops students' knowledge and skills to see a construction project through its lifecycle, from concept to construction. Students also complete a minor in engineering and construction project management, giving them scope to work in management areas within engineering companies.

Students successfully completing their study may be eligible to apply for Engineering Technologist membership of Engineers Australia.

Students completing the three-year degree with a grade point average of 5.0 or better (equivalent to a
credit average) may qualify for entry to the Faculty of Arts and Design Honours program.
