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 part-time 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) (Surveying) (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) (Surveying)
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.

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 part-time up to 12 years maximum.
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) (Surveying) program, students are required to complete 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.
Students are advised to read their program handbook information in conjunction with the program plans for course sequence/enrolment advice. Please refer to the Program Plan for the year that you commenced, or transitioned into, this program - Program Plans are available above.
