About Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Civil) / Bachelor of Mathematics at University of Newcastle, Australia

Civil engineering. A firm foundation for your career.

At UON we educate our engineers to meet the global challenges of the future. You could engineer energy-efficient buildings using the latest nano-materials, or help develop sustainable and resilient infrastructure in developing countries. Perhaps you'll design Australia's first high-speed train network to connect communities and reduce carbon emissions. Or even build a revolutionary water recycling plant to tackle water security issues.

What is civil engineering? Civil engineers are responsible for the physical infrastructure that enables modern societies to function. Buildings, highways and railways, tunnels, airports, power generation facilities and harbour facilities are all designed, built and managed by civil engineers.

Why combine engineering with mathematics? Complete these two bachelor degrees in just five years - deepen your technical skills with advanced maths courses. Mathematics is fundamental to break-through engineering and can open up new, complimentary fields like data mining, mathematical modelling, statistics and predictive analysis.

Why study with us?

  • Real-world insights: Connect with industry through projects, guest lecturers, and mentoring.
  • Be workplace ready: Graduates rated us no.1 in NSW for workplace ready skills. In 2016, 93% of graduates were employed within 4 months.
  • Travel the world with international recognition through Engineers Australia. You can even start while you're studying with international exchanges and scholarships available.
  • We're No.1 in Australia for overall quality of the educational experience.
  • Fast-Track Masters - advance your career and gain a Master of Professional Engineering in just 1 year on top of your Bachelor of Engineering degree.

What will you study?

Build critical technical and engineering skills through courses in:

  • engineering mechanics
  • engineering computation
  • surveying
  • theory of structures
  • civil engineering materials
  • geomechanics
  • fluid mechanics
  • transportation engineering and design

Connect with industry through guest lectures and interdisciplinary projects solving real world problems. Gain invaluable practical experience through your industry placement.

Become job-ready through our professional practice courses. You'll learn to tackle 'wicked problems' and develop essential workplace skills in finance, project management, sustainability, communication and entrepreneurism.

Develop your mathematics skills in:

  • advanced physics
  • calculus
  • complex analysis
  • linear algebra
  • mathematical discovery
  • mathematical modelling
  • quantum mechanics and semiconductor physics
  • statistics

Careers

Civil engineers work for construction companies, consulting firms, project management companies, transport companies and governments. You could specialise in:

  • structural engineering - design buildings, bridges, airports, railways, and towers, and the suitability of materials for infrastructure projects
  • water engineering - design and manage water supply, control and treatment systems
  • transport and traffic engineering - plan, investigate and optimise transport systems
  • geotechnical engineering - design foundations, support structures, assess stability of slopes and tunnels.

Civil engineering is flexible and diverse. You might prefer to work onsite, in design and development, or a leadership role managing people and projects. Typical positions include:

  • civil engineering designer
  • civil engineering project manager
  • structural engineer
  • geotechnical engineer
  • transport systems engineer
  • stormwater engineer
  • urban development engineer

Remarkably, engineering is the most commonly held degree among the highest performing Fortune 500 CEOs - the CEOs of companies such as Google, Microsoft, Amazon and Tesla Motors are all engineers.
