Commences Mt Helen & Federation Training Institute (formerly GippsTAFE) - Semester 2, 2014; & Semester 1, 2015
Program Outline

The Bachelor of Engineering Technology is a three year design-orientated technical program - providing you with the best possible start in a career as an Engineering Technologist.

If you prefer a more practical approach to learning, yosu will excel in this hands on program, with courses focused on engineering principles that are implemented to solve design problems. From your second year of study you will undertake a specialisation in Civil, Mining or Mechanical Engineering, developing skills that will enable you to cost and analyse project resources; conduct tests and research; and gather and analyse data to support decision making and reporting requirements. Upon graduation you will work in positions requiring expertise in planning, designing and construction.

Areas of study available to you in the Civil Engineering program include Fundamentals of Structural Design, Transport Infrastructure, Waste & Wastewater Infrastructure Design, Water & Drainage Infrastructure, Geomechanics, Engineering Surveying, Infrastructure Planning & Management.

As a graduate of this program you may choose to undertake our Master of Engineering Technology which is specifically designed to facilitate our Bachelor of Engineering Technology graduates gaining Professional Engineer status. The main characteristic of this program is applied design in a systems context; and from your second year, you will specialise in Civil Engineering.

Career Opportunities

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 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 Graduates may be employed with private consultants, contracting companies, or with federal, state and local government organisations.

There are significant opportunities for employment in Australia, as well as in South-East Asia and throughout the rest of the world.

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.
