The MSc Civil Engineering programme is ideal if you would like to broaden and deepen your technical knowledge of specialised civil engineering areas and develop a wider perspective and understanding of the issues facing the civil engineering industries. It provides a distinctive educational platform to encourage the development of articulate, numerate, literate, imaginative, versatile, confident and inquisitive postgraduates who are able to link the theoretical with the practical.

About the course

The course is designed for those who have already graduated with a civil engineering or engineering-related degree. Successful completion of the MSc is designed to provide the educational base for progression to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

You will obtain advanced analytical skills in your chosen subject areas. You will have the opportunity to learn to design steel and concrete framed structures using modern structural analysis software, use advanced theory for the design and implementation of geotechnical works, apply advanced hydraulic concepts and model hydraulic systems, learn about advanced materials technologies and use advanced techniques to model transport and other systems. You will develop skills in project management and can choose whether you want to learn about environmental management or construction law and sustainable procurement.

In structures, you will also learn to assess existing buildings and design adaptations and apply the stiffness matrix method to analyse two-dimensional structures. In geotechnical engineering you will design earthworks, and slope and retaining walls. In hydraulics you will study open channel and pipe flow and urban pollution management. In materials you will learn about special concretes and sustainability and materials repair and rehabilitation. In transport you will apply linear programming and queuing theory to practical problems.

Geomechanical engineers examine the soil and rock layers that make up the earth in order to determine their physical and chemical properties. Read more
Geomechanical engineers examine the soil and rock layers that make up the earth in order to determine their physical and chemical properties. Using this information, they design foundations and earthworks structures for buildings, roads, and many other types of projects. They provide information and knowledge on how the soil and rocks beneath a proposed structure will behave under pressure.

The Master of Professional Engineering (Geomechanical) is a 3 year full-time course delivering technical and professional outcomes that will allow you to be recognised as an Australian graduate engineer in this field. This degree has been given provisional accreditation at the level of Professional Engineering by the industry governing body, Engineers Australia http://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/

In this course you will engage in areas of study including environmental geotechnics, rock engineering, and engineering behaviour of soils.

If your bachelor's degree included foundational engineering units, you may be given advanced standing in the Master of Professional Engineering. Entry pathways are available for students with widely varying backgrounds.

The MPE is comprised of foundation units of study, elective units in the area of your specialisation and a 12-week practical industry experience component. There are also a number of professional electives you can choose from and a capstone project in your final year.

If you are interested in continuing on to complete a research degree, a research dissertation can act as a research pathway.
