You'll concentrate on fundamentals in environmental science, chemistry, biology and engineering mathematics.
During second year, your environmental science studies will cover the hydrosphere, ecology and soil environment.
Engineering practice units give you the opportunity to engage in a multidisciplinary project. Working in teams, you will learn about environmental principles and sustainable design. You’ll also start groundwater studies.
You'll learn about the atmosphere and start to study courses from your chosen minor of either environmental biology or environmental chemistry.
You'll also gain a basic grounding in environmental engineering through studies in urban systems of water supply and pollution control. Geological site investigation studies also include the opportunity to undertake site visits.
In your fourth year, you will complete your minor studies.
You will further develop your understanding of urban water systems, economics, waste water treatments and land contamination.
You'll also undertake an environmental engineering project.
Your final year will focus on advanced studies in environmental sampling and analysis as well as studies in ethics, policies and law.
You'll also be prepared for the workforce through work-integrated learning opportunities and specially designed courses.
