This degree aims to enable students to complete a postgraduate program that will lead to an advanced level of knowledge in a specialised area of engineering. The graduate certificate of engineering technology (environmental engineering) is ideal for engineers or scientists who have a three-year degree in science, engineering or technology and want to extend their knowledge of environmental engineering. Through this four unit degree, students have the option to select from a range of courses (subjects) which will empower them to apply engineering solutions to the sustainable management of environment. Courses include irrigation science, urban and regional planning and hydrology. Students could take the credit from their studies and go on to complete the master of engineering technology. Environmental engineering at USQ provides students with the knowledge and skills to be an 'environmental problem-solver'. Students could work in water and wastewater treatment, river hydrology, soil conservation, irrigation, salinisation, drainage, mine site rehabilitation, environmental studies, water resources engineering or soil science.
