Civil engineers are concerned with the design, construction and improvement of our built environment. This degree provides you with the technical expertise and management skills needed to plan, design, construct and maintain facilities such as buildings, bridges, dams, water supply systems, waste treatment systems, road and rail networks, and air and sea ports. You will gain comprehensive civil engineering theory as well as hands-on practical work and real-life projects to get you job-ready or use the course as a pathway into research or further learning.
Graduates are eligible for registration under Civil branch with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
The indicative course fees shown here applies to students studying on-campus in Malaysia for the relevant year only. They are based on a standard study load per year. However, please note that fees are assessed according to a student’s study load in each semester, and variation to study load will result in an adjustment to tuition fees. All fees are subject to annual review and may be adjusted.
- Course objectives, course learning outcomes, course structure, units of study, career opportunities and professional recognition.
The following course educational objectives define the achievements of Swinburne graduates in their professional engineering career a few years after graduation.
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
At the completion of the Bachelor of Engineering (Civil Engineering), graduates should be able to demonstrate the attainment of the following Civil Swinburne Engineering Competencies, required for external professional recognition:
For the completion of Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) (Honours), students are required to complete a total of 32 units (400 credit points) consisting of:
* Outcome unit – completion demonstrates the attainment of course learning outcomes
† Honours merit unit – results are used in the honours merit calculation
In the final year, students will be required to undertake two Final Year Research Project units (capstone experiences) which helps meet professional accreditation requirements.
Students are required to complete EAT20008 Professional Experience in Engineering (non-credit point unit), a 12-week approved relevant industrial practical experience before the commencement of the last semester of study.
There is high demand for civil engineers in Malaysia and overseas. Civil engineers work as planners, designers, construction managers, administrators, investigation and research engineers and consultants. They have the opportunity to work for public authorities, municipalities, consulting firms and in the construction industries, or are self-employed.
Civil engineering is also an excellent preparation for many general managerial positions in business and industry, not directly related to civil engineering.
Graduates are eligible to register as Graduate Engineers with Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM) and to apply for graduate membership with The Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) and Engineers Australia (EA).
At Swinburne scholarships are about providing opportunity, promoting equity and recognising excellence and achievement. Scholarships are available for both commencing and current students.
