Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) in Civil Engineering / Bachelor of Environmental Science
Deciding to study at Griffith was an easy choice for double degree student Tehya Hethorn, who is also a Student Ambassador for Engineers Australia. 'Griffith ranks highly in its Civil Engineering and Environmental Science subjects and research, the facilities are excellent, the support the university offers is fantastic and these is a multitude of opportunities for students to set themselves up for success. The program structure lets you experience a wide range of engineering concepts before settling on a specific major, which is really valuable to anyone who is unsure of the field of engineering they want to enter.'
