Imagine the future. Then build it
Many of the buildings and physical infrastructures in our modern society are made possible by civil engineers. Civil engineers provide a major contribution to society by supporting the design and development of essential services, and by managing and improving the built environment. By studying civil engineering, you will develop your knowledge in the planning, design, construction and management of buildings and infrastructure such as: roads, bridges, rail networks, irrigation, drainage and flood mitigation systems, airports, water and wastewater treatment plants, port and harbours, coastal defence and management systems, commercial buildings and residential houses. If you want a career creating tomorrow's cities, then this major is for you.
