Our civil engineering courses start with a foundation in theory, combined with an industry focus.

You’ll not only learn the technical and management skills required to plan, design, construct and maintain infrastructure — your civil engineering degree will teach you how to apply that knowledge within a wide range of organisations.

No matter the project — building dams, designing water supply systems, constructing transport infrastructure networks, or anything else — you’ll be equipped to help create the (literal) foundations of our society.

    Budding civil engineers Iraish Thirimanne and Alex Chiodo have been named in the Top 100 Future Leaders for 2019.

    The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours)(Civil)/Bachelor of Business students say their placement as part of their degree helped give them the edge.

    "I was able to apply the skills I had learned already learned at uni, while also learning more about what it means to be a civil engineer," says Alex.

The Swinburne Advantage

An undergraduate degree must be about more than just knowledge – it’s also job readiness, professional experience and access to further opportunities.
