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 leader, designer, consultant and manager 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.
RMIT University is ranked among the world’s top 100 universities in civil and structural engineering (2017 QS World University Rankings by Subject).
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
This program incorporates blended learning, which includes face-to-face teaching and 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 enabling 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 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.
The built environment is constantly evolving in terms of new technologies and practices, with a continuing demand for civil engineers in Australia and overseas, particularly Southeast Asia and East Asia.
Professionals with an up-to-date and specialised understanding of this field will be sought after in areas such as construction, infrastructure, mining, building services, water and transport and logistics sectors.
Professional recognition and accreditation
This program does not yet have accreditation from Engineers Australia. Accreditation will be sought for this program as soon as it is feasible to do so within the accreditation timelines set by Engineers Australia.
