Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering
Have you ever wondered how clean water gets to the tap? Or how 15-storey buildings and 3 km long suspension bridges stay standing? Or What caused the Tower of Pisa to lean?
Civil engineering is probably the best-known type of engineering because the work of the civil engineer is clearly visible to us every day. Civil engineering is all about creating, improving and protecting the environment in which we live. It involves the planning, design and construction of facilities that we require for everyday living, industry and transport. As a civil engineer, you will have a creative, diverse, and challenging career and will be making a real contribution to the needs of both modern and developing societies all over the world.
If you like variety, civil engineering offers a huge range of projects on which you could be employed: roads, bridges, pipelines, buildings, sewage treatment plants, dams, jetties, etc.
