Study a civil and infrastructure degree that is at the forefront of engineering education and is designed to satisfy industry demand.
Civil and infrastructure engineers plan, design, construct, supervise, manage and maintain the essential infrastructure of our modern community. They aim to be responsive to wider community needs and reflective of the values that relate to the economic, environmental and social impacts of projects.
You’ll be able to specialise in civil infrastructure projects, geotechnical works, structures, transport or water resources.
The program emphasises work experience and project-based learning. There's a broad range of electives so you can customise your studies to suit your interests.
Graduates acquire good interpersonal skills, a solid understanding of engineering theory and the ability to apply learning and knowledge to a wide range of situations.
RMIT aims to provide innovative learning experiences with a strong emphasis on communication, teamwork and leadership.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, workshops, presentations, group discussions, and syndicate work.
You'll have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes examinations, essays, reports, oral classes, presentations, group projects, research projects, laboratory projects and practical assignments.
The program has strong links with industry, organisations and departments concerned with civil engineering, and relationships are established between students and organisations through project-based teaching modes used in several courses.
In the third and final years of your studies you'll undertake major projects that are either industry-based or simulate an industrial situation. You'll work with industry leaders using the theory and practical experience gained through the program to solve a problem.
In order to graduate from this program you must complete a minimum 12 weeks of engineering experience that allows you to gain first-hand experience in an engineering practice environment under the supervision of a professional engineer. The nature and timing of this engineering experience can take a range of forms.
Opportunities exist for an overseas work placement of between six and 12 months (this satisfies the work experience requirement). These placements are normally taken during a one-year break in the middle or at the end of the third year of the degree.
Students have been placed in workplaces including engineering consulting companies, construction companies, government agencies, and local councils.
In addition to this you'll have the opportunity in Year 1 to participate in an industry project run through Engineers Without Borders.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
Graduates are employed as project managers, design engineers, construction managers, environmental engineers and engineering asset managers.
Professional recognition and accreditation
This program is fully accredited by Engineers Australia. Graduates of the program are eligible for graduate membership of Engineers Australia. Full membership as a professional engineer may be obtained after an appropriate period of professional practice.
Australia is one of 15 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, also known as the Washington Accord, for professional engineers. The qualification of graduates from this degree is recognised in all countries that are signatories to the Accord.
RMIT has civil and infrastructure engineering student exchange program agreements with universities in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia.
Optional tours are organised to Paris to study practical applications related to sustainable cities of the future.
