Admission to our undergraduate degree programs usually requires successful completion of a senior secondary school qualification similar to the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the highest educational award in New South Wales schools.
- Semester 1 - 27 Feb 2017
- Semester 2 - 24 Jul 2017
Face to Face
5 years full-time or part-time equivalent up to 12 years maximum.
Currently enrolled, continuing students looking for the previous version of this program should refer back to the: Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) / Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental) (pre 2017)
For addtional information about this degree you can refer to the pages for the corresponding single degrees:
Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil), and Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental)
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil)/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental) provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in two areas of engineering and complete two awards. In general, this combined degree program offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each separate degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills. Students develop skills in the design and building of large scale projects such as roads, bridges, airports, major buildings and water supply systems whilst also gaining skills to assess and model the potential damage and long-term environmental problems resulting from human activity and, importantly, devise environmentally sustainable and economic solutions.

The UAC code for this program is 482620
Enrolling in mathematics - Maths placement test
Your degree includes either compulsory or optional courses in maths. To maximise your likelihood of academic success, it is recommended that you select the course which matches your existing knowledge and understanding of maths concepts.
Minimum English language proficiency requirements
All Applicants must demonstrate that they meet the University’s English proficiency requirement. Further information regarding English language proficiency requirements can be found at the English Language Proficiency for Admission Policy here.
If you wish to apply for credit for studies completed at another institution, or if you are changing programs within the University and wish to transfer your credit to the new program, visit the University's credit website and click on 'How to Apply for Credit'.
Compulsory program requirements
Requirements for qualification of this award include completion of at least 12 weeks of industrial experience of a nature acceptable to the Faculty Board. Students are encouraged to obtain and to report on a substantial block of this experience at one time but several shorter periods not less than 2 weeks duration will be accepted.
Academic requirements for program completion
Total units required
5 years full-time or part-time equivalent up to 12 years maximum.
International student visa holders who are studying the program on campus are required to enrol full time as per student visa requirements.
For all combined programs and in accordance with the Combined Degree Principles and Structures Guideline , the core and minimum requirements for each single degree component must be met in each combined program. Consideration is given to overlapping courses and/or content where applicable, but to also ensure that accreditation is not compromised.
In the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) / Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Environmental) program, students are required to complete a total of 400 units, 380 units of which are core courses and 20 units of which are directed courses.
The program has a duration of 5 years full time (or part time equivalent). It is possible for a student to 'step out' with a single degree award only and not complete the combined program they are enrolled in. In order to accomplish this, a student would be required to complete the single degree requirements for their preferred degree and may be required to complete any omitted courses. A student wishing to 'step out' with a single degree should contact their program convenor or program advisor for further information.
This program can be completed in five years. However, a student's choice of directed courses may lead to timetabling issues that may extend the duration of their program. Students are advised to consult with their program convenor regarding their academic program.
Please note that if you undertake courses that are not in your approved program, you will be liable for additional fees for those courses. This is in addition to the fees associated with your normal program of study.
Students with a Band 1 or 2 in the NSW HSC course Extension 1 Mathematics OR who have completed NSW HSC Extension 2 Mathematics (or their interstate/international equivalents) are able to complete the higher level MATH1210/MATH1220 Mathematical Discovery 1/Mathematical Discovery 2 course in lieu of MATH1110/MATH1120. Please contact your program advisor if you wish to discuss this option.
Students may choose to undertake PHYS1210 Advanced Physics 1 in lieu of PHYS1205 with program convenor approval. Additionally, students who have completed PHYS1210 who have transferred to a program that requires PHYS1205 can count PHYS1210 in lieu of PHYS1205
