Description (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours )(Civil)/Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Surveying) combined degree program is offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Built Environment. This program provides students with an opportunity to undertake concurrent study in civil engineering and surveying and complete two awards. In general, if offers greater breadth of learning, enhancing the academic and professional qualities gained in each degree. At the same time, it recognises the increasing need for students to graduate with multidisciplinary skills.


Study a language (Click to hide)(Section detail has been hidden from print)Back to top

All students can now enrol in an undergraduate Diploma in Languages alongside their main degree program. This diploma will enhance proficiency in another language or languages, and will increase international career opportunities. Subject to course availability, this additional program will generally add an extra year to studies, and students will graduate with a Diploma in Languages as well as their other degree. Please note that all language courses are held on campus (face to face) at Callaghan.
