Civil Engineering

What is Civil Engineering?
Civil Engineers are responsible for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of infrastructure. They work in a range of different industries involving buildings, roads, tunnels, airfields, railways, mines and other types of infrastructure.

Civil Engineering is very broad and opens up the opportunity for specialisation.

Civil Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
