About this course

The Graduate Diploma of Engineering (Civil) has been designed for students who wish to enhance their knowledge and undertake continuing professional development in the field of civil engineering. The course has an applied industry focus and presents a variety of units relevant to professional practice in the fields of civil and construction engineering.
The core units of study within the course have a technical focus which can be complemented with a range of technical or management focused elective units to suit the needs of the individual student. Importantly, many of the technical units of study have a sustainability theme which is the great challenge for the delivery of infrastructure in the 21st century.
The course aims to produce graduates who will be able to lead and apply advanced technical and management skills to the design, procurement and maintenance of infrastructure projects. The course will also provide a pathway for graduating students to undertake PhD research in one of the specialist areas of civil engineering.

Please note: the last intake for this course will be Semester 2 2018. Please refer to the Graduate Diploma of Engineering (GD-ENG).
