The market demand for Civil Engineers is growing

Domestic infrastructure has slowed down in 2020 and may take some time to recover - civil projects, however, are on the rise.

The civil engineering sector is expected to have positive trajectory over the next few years as government projects get the green light, particularly in the transport infrastructure projects. Think of the massive project that is Melbourne’s level-crossings, which will continue through to 2025.

Being part of a community through planning and infrastructure development and execution is rewarding. According to Development Victoria, Melbourne’s population is on track to reach 10 million by 2050 and we need infrastructure to support this growth. Civil Engineers are in high demand.

Studying Civil Engineering at Melbourne Polytechnic

With a growing interest in sustainability and finding new ways for our cities to function into the future, civil engineering is more vital than ever. Along with fundamental principles of engineering, it’s important for the engineers of tomorrow to apply environmental and sustainable considerations to projects.

Melbourne Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Civil) is a skills-based technical degree. While many traditional universities offer professional courses that focus on theory, you’ll step into your engineering career with applied experience.

Information sessions give you the opportunity to ask questions about your engineering degree from lecturers who teach the program.

Find your focus

Far from the huge lecture theatres of traditional universities, class sizes are practical and your lecturer’s attention to detail on your work and helping you achieve success is laser-focused.  

One of the benefits of studying a degree at Melbourne Polytechnic is the class sizes, you can expect to have the same small group of people in your class the whole way through your degree. Build up strong, professional relationships with your teachers and peers is an essential factor in a successful career.

In the first two years of your studies, you build the foundation of your engineering expertise. Once you’ve had a chance to explore the possibilities, select your major to focus in the third and fourth years. You can choose one of;

  • Municipal/Transportation Engineering
  • Construction Management
  • Structural Engineering

Solve real life engineering problems

With practical application through assignments, you’ll hit the ground running when you graduate and get your first foot in the engineering door. As a graduate, you’ll have fostered  connections to industry and relative experience to put your skills to use in the real world.

Melbourne Polytechnic’s Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Civil) is accredited by Engineers Australia and recognised in industry.

Never stop learning

As an engineer, it’s important to always be innovating and learning. Our Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Civil) sets you up to be a lifelong learner in a practical and academic environment.

One of our graduates knows this first hand. Student Eugene Jayant graduated from Bachelor of Engineering Technology (Civil) at Melbourne Polytechnic and started his career. He then decided to take his education journey a step further. Thanks to the balance of practical and problem-solving skills he developed in his degree at Melbourne Polytechnic, Eugene was accepted into the prestigious Master’s program at Melbourne University.
