If you prefer a more practical approach to learning, you'll
excel in this hands-on degree. It's all about design and
construction with a focus on technology. You'll learn how to solve
design problems, cost and analyse project resources, conduct tests
and research and gather and analyse data. It's these skills that
will help give the expert advice needed in the design and
From your second year of study you will undertake a
specialisation in civil engineering.
Your study areas include 'fundamentals of structural design',
'transport infrastructure', 'waste and wastewater infrastructure
design', 'geo-mechanics' and more. And you'll get experience in the
workforce through an industry-based course. When you graduate, you
may work with a private consultant, in the mining industry or
FedUni is committed to producing creative, engineering
technologists who have a good knowledge of social, environmental,
economic and organisational issues that are necessary to obtain
employment as an engineering technologist and to be admitted as an
engineering technologist with Engineers Australia.
As an engineering technologist you will work with a professional
engineer to put predetermined theory into practice and assist in
identifying which solution will best deliver the required outcome.
You will work in a hands-on role in the construction process. As a
civil engineering graduate, you will have developed technical
skills together with a knowledge and appreciation of the
environment, sustainable development, social and political aspects
that impact upon the work of the civil engineer.
You may work as a civil engineering technologist in the
planning, design, construction, testing and evaluation of:
• roads, rail, and bridges
• communications towers
• gas, water, power and sewer systems
• traffic management and control systems
|Program Rules and Requirements
To qualify for the Bachelor of Engineering Technology degree,
you must complete the specified courses and structural requirements
of the program and obtain 360 credit points.
FedUni has improved its range of engineering programs for 2015.
A new feature is the common first year of study* which means
students are not locked into an area of specialisation until the
second year of their degree program. The common first year is also
available at both the Ballarat Campus and the Gippsland Campus,
which means students will have additional choice of where to
