The Master of Engineering (Civil) is designed to increase your level of knowledge and understanding in many different areas of civil engineering. It will prepare you for a career in planning, design and maintenance of infrastructure such as the built environment, water resources, mining and transport.
Civil engineers plan, design, build and maintain a wide variety of physical infrastructure such as bridges, buildings, airports, roads, railways, ports, mines, water and wastewater supply, treatment and reuse systems. They also help to maintain sustainable natural environments. The solutions developed by civil engineers must take into consideration social, environmental and financial constraints.
|Start Date:||March, July|
|Location:||Adelaide Campus, Australia|
|Delivery mode:||On campus|
The coursework has been designed to provide graduates with a strong foundation in both the theoretical and practical aspects of civil engineering, including an understanding of advanced civil practices; the social, economic, cultural and environmental aspects of civil engineering; and professional and ethical responsibilities.
You will learn to critically analyse and evaluate information and solve civil engineering problems, work and interact professionally, and undertake research in civil engineering and/or relevant areas.
What you will study
The Master of Engineering (Civil) is a 72-unit program offered by the College of Science and Engineering. It covers the four traditional sub-disciplines of civil engineering: geotechnical, structural, transport and water engineering. It gives you the flexibility to choose specialist topics that will enhance your knowledge within a particular civil engineering discipline. This flexibility is complemented by a major thesis (subject to receiving a credit average) or project that enables you to explore a particular aspect of civil engineering in depth.
“I had a nice relationship with all my lecturers. They were committed to helping you out with everything, especially if you showed that you cared about your work. Uni organised for me to go to Flinders Partners to work on software for innovation management. I was so pleased when they offered me a full-time position.”

Civil engineers work closely with architects, planners and the community to ensure that what is constructed is what is needed. And unlike many disciplines, the fruits of civil engineering often last a very long time. Civil engineering graduates are in great demand with career destinations including building and construction, transport and the mining industries.
Potential occupations include:
- design engineer
- site supervisor
- infrastructure planner and builder
- city engineer
- asset manager
- research engineer.
Potential employers include:
- engineering consultancies
- local, state and federal government
- construction companies
- infrastructure owners.
This program is provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of professional engineer. Professional engineering courses accredited by Engineers Australia are recognised internationally under the Washington Accord. Graduates will meet the academic requirements for attaining chartered professional engineering status.
