Explore your options
Your engineering degree features a common first year that combines broad foundation principles with a wide range of specialisation choices, giving you flexibility and options before you choose your career specialisation.
Why choose this specialisation?
You will be exposed to the ideas and experience of lecturers and industry professionals. Our academic staff are industry experienced and also members of international networks and collaborative research project groups. You will have the opportunity to work with other students and staff in the student-run laboratory classes and on real-world projects, which will enhance your knowledge and develop your problem-solving skills.
While the civil and construction specialisation retains sufficient traditional civil engineering to enable graduates to work in consulting offices, most graduates find employment with civil construction companies and government departments. Commercial and legal studies equip graduates to progress through the management structures of these organisations or to establish companies of their own.
The range of work undertaken by civil construction companies ranges from residential land development through to earthworks, tunnels, roads and dams to airports, marine facilities, major bridges and complex buildings. The worldwide trend towards design and construction being undertaken within one organisation advantages engineers who are competent in both.
This course has professional accreditation from Engineers Australia (EA). EA is a signatory to the Washington Accord, which permits graduates to work in various countries across the world. This course is recognised internationally in the engineering profession, giving QUT graduates more career opportunities overseas.
Expand your expertise
When you select this specialisation your study plan will also include the choice of a second study area.
Work Integrated Learning unit
Bachelor of Engineering students are required to complete at least 60 days of industrial experience in an engineering environment approved by the course coordinator as part of the Work Integrated Learning unit.
Common first-year units include the foundations of engineering mathematics, basic principles of sustainability, electrical engineering, engineering mechanics, engineering design and engineering materials. These units provide a strong, fundamental overview of the three engineering streams: civil, electrical and mechanical.
Apply knowledge of fundamental engineering science in design areas of timber and concrete construction. Explore theoretical aspects of geotechnical and materials engineering. Your theoretical understanding is reinforced by practical experience in our laboratories. Develop skills in construction administration and project management. Engineering statistics mathematical skills also help your understanding of all aspects of engineering design.
Increase your knowledge and skills in geotechnical engineering, construction management, law and other related construction practices. Explore steel construction. Continue to develop communication and organisational skills by writing reports, presenting seminars and working in small groups. Choose a second study area.
Build on your third year to complete your second study area. Undertake a major project which will bring together all your previously mastered skills, and advance your communication skills in report writing and seminar presentation. You also complete your work integrated learning.
Second majors and minors
You will have the opportunity to undertaken either a 2nd major or two minors (see options below).
Please refer to the rules before making your selection.
Electrical engineering second major and minor options
- Civil Infrastructure
- Civil and Construction Engineering minor
- A minor from anywhere in QUT that is outside of the course.
Please note: The Work Integrated Learning unit (BEB701) and the project unit (BEB801) that are required for professional recognition and were once part of an applications minor have now been moved to the core of the Engineering course.
