Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours)

Build the world we live in, create and innovate to solve civil engineering problems.

Civil engineering deals with the design and construction of major physical infrastructure including buildings, roads and railways, bridges, airports, dams and pipelines. The problems to be addressed in working with the natural environment, particularly in a low-carbon economy, means that civil engineering is an exciting and wide-ranging discipline. Flinders civil engineering is a comprehensive degree covering the four main civil engineering themes of structures, transport, water and geomechanics, bringing them together to create innovative infrastructure design and construction solutions.
