1. Overview

Course: Project Engineering and Management (Civil) (till 2012) (2010)
CP Required: 192
Min FT Duration: 4.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: University Archive
Years Offered: 2012, 2011, 2010

2. Requirements

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

For the BE (Project Engg and Mgmt (Civil)) degree students must take at least 24 credit points of study from the recommended Third Year and Fourth Year units. The remaining 12 credit points can be obtained from any of the listed elective units or from units of study in other Faculties subject to approval from the Director of the Learning and Teaching; Civil Engineering.

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.

Choice of electives as shown in the above table will depend upon subject availability; timetabling and prerequisite conditions.

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.
