Years Offered: 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010
Requirements: This course outline should be read in conjunction with the Handbook for the Bachelor of Engineering: http://sydney.edu.au/handbooks/engineering/undergraduate/b_engineering.shtml

Candidates are required to complete 192 credit points made up as follows:

(a) 144 credit points of core Civil Units.

and

(b) at least 18 credit points of 3rd year Civil electives,

and

(c) at least 18 credit points of 4th year Civil electives,

and

(d) no more than 12 credit points of "Additional Electives"

Additional Electives

Candidates must complete 12 credit points of additional elective units of study. These are also called "free electives". They may be any combination of units from any of the Second Year, Third Year or Fourth Year Civil electives, AND/OR from units of study in other Faculties subject to approval from the Director of the Learning and Teaching; Civil Engineering. The list of pre-approved free electives is at: http://sydney.edu.au/engineering/civil/current/undergraduate/electives.shtml#free

Choice of electives will depend upon subject availability, timetabling and prerequisite conditions.

Civil Engineering Specialisation

Specialisation in the BE (Civil) degree is available to exceptional students who meet certain progress requirements ( http://sydney.edu.au/engineering/civil/current/undergraduate/streams.shtml ). To satisfy the specialisation criteria students must complete at least 3 electives from the relevant specialisation listed below and undertake an Honours Thesis or Engineering Project in a related topic:

(i) Structural Engineering Specialisation: CIVL3235; CIVL5266; CIVL5269; CIVL5458

(ii) Environmental Engineering Specialisation: CIVL3614; CIVL5351; CIVL5668; CIVL5670

(iii) Geotechnical Engineering Specialisation: CIVL3411; CIVL5351; CIVL5452; CIVL5458

(iv) Construction Engineering and Management Specialisation: CIVL3805, CIVL4815, CIVL3813, CIVL4810 and CIVL4814

In order to satisfy the requirements for specialisation the candidate may need to complete more than 240 credit points.

Other Notes

Students in the Honours program must enrol in CIVL4022 & CIVL4023; students in the Pass Program must enrol in CIVL4024 & CIVL4025.

With special permission from the Director of the Learning and Teaching; Civil Engineering; it is possible to take Thesis or Project A in Semester 2 and Thesis or Project B in Semester 1.

CIVL0011; CIVL0012; CIVL0013; CIVL0014; CIVL0015; CIVL0016; CIVL0017 AND CIVL0018 are available for international exchange study programs.

Most Mathematics; Chemistry; Physics and Computer Science units of study offered by the Faculty of Science can be replaced by an equivalent advanced level units of study subject to prerequisite conditions (as required by the Faculty of Science) being met.
