This program will deepen your knowledge in the civil engineering fields of design, infrastructure planning, sustainability, project management and transport engineering.
The Master of Engineering (Civil Engineering) will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills in civil engineering to enhance your career prospects in relevant industry sectors.
The program will provide you with skills to step up into roles including project leaders, designers, consultants and managers with the knowledge and skills to lead construction projects, and introduce new infrastructure and transport systems.
You will gain knowledge in high-demand areas such as:
- infrastructure planning and management
- infrastructure asset management
- railway infrastructure
- engineering geology and advanced laboratory testing
- stability of earth structures
- advanced transport infrastructure.
With an emphasis on project-based and multidisciplinary learning, you will develop your professional engineering competencies in teamwork, leadership, problem-solving, communication and research.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
You may be eligible for exemptions on a case-by-case basis for previous study in a qualification at AQF level 8 or above from a cognate field.
Some project work may be held on Bundoora campus.
This program incorporates blended learning, which includes face-to-face teaching, intensive and e-learning delivery modes.
You will undertake a comprehensive program of supervised laboratory work and industry visits to relevant organisations. The laboratory program will allow you to use specialist equipment in civil engineering for both testing and researching problems and solutions
Through common core courses you will engage with the wider engineering community, enhancing your cohort experience and enable multidisciplinary learning.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
The program includes exposure to a range of Australian and international companies through industry visits and may include site visits.
Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program through membership of the School Program Advisory Committee (PAC), which comprises industry representatives, academic staff and alumni.
The program also facilitates networking opportunities with fellow engineering masters students from a range of disciplines and industries.
There is a demand for civil engineering in Australia and overseas, particularly South-East Asia and East Asia.
Civil engineers work in the construction, infrastructure, mining, building services, water, and transport and logistics sectors.
Professional recognition and accreditation
Engineers Australia accreditation will be sought for this program in accordance with accreditation timelines.
