Admission Requirements

Entry Requirements

To be eligible for admission to Master of Civil Engineering, a student must hold:

  • a Bachelor degree in Civil Engineering or equivalent three year or four year Civil Engineering undergraduate degree from a recognised university (or another tertiary education institution of equivalent standing)
  • OR a Bachelor Honours degree in Civil Engineering or equivalent four year Civil Engineering undergraduate degree from a recognised university (or another tertiary education institution of equivalent standing)
  • OR a Graduate Certificate in Civil Engineering.

Students admitted to the program with a Bachelor Honours degree in Civil Engineering or equivalent four year Civil Engineering undergraduate degree or a Graduate Certificate in Civil Engineering will be eligible for 40 credit points of advanced standing towards the program. Trimester 2 entry is only available to students admitted with advanced standing.

Note: Only graduates of civil engineering will be admitted to this program due to its focus on technical design. The program is, therefore, not suitable to other engineering graduates.

Study option

If you do not meet the academic entry criteria, you may be able to study the Masters Qualifying Program (9354) and qualify for entry into this Masters degree.

English Requirements

English language requirements apply to International applicants and other applicants whose previous Bachelor-level study was completed in a country other than Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Republic of Ireland, United Kingdom or the United States of America or undertaken in a language other than English. The minimum English language requirements for such applicants for entry to this program are as follows:

  • A minimum overall band score of 6.5 on IELTS (Academic) with no sub-score of less than 6.0

  • OR a minimum score of 575 on TOEFL

  • OR an internet-based (iBT) TOEFL score of 79 (no sub-score less than 19)

  • OR no score less than 3+ in each skill of the ISLPR (conducted by ISLPR Language Services only)

  • OR a minimum overall score of 176 (no score less than 169) on C1 Advanced (formerly Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English) or C2 Proficiency (formerly Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English)

  • OR an overall score of 58 in the Pearson Test of English (Academic) with no score less than 50.

English test results must be no more than two years old.

Course Information

Please note that entry to this program in Trimester 2 is only available to students admitted with advanced standing (see admission requirements for further information).

This degree will give you advanced study across the breadth of specialisations in civil engineering. It is designed to extend and deepen your knowledge and skills gained from an undergraduate degree in civil engineering.

It is ideal for professional civil engineers who aspire to develop their design skills and advance their capabilities to analyse and solve structural problems across a wide range of real world civil engineering applications.

Career Opportunity

Career Opportunity

You will be prepared for a wide range of senior roles in the building, construction, infrastructure, and mining industries undertaking projects for a variety of public and private sector clients. More specifically, you will provide structural analysis and design services to engineering projects such as roads, bridges, tunnels, water distribution networks and high-rise buildings.

Given the current shortage of civil engineering graduates and experienced civil engineers in Australia, coupled with the huge investment in infrastructure projects nationally and internationally, this degree will enable recently qualified engineering graduates to improve their specialist technical skills.
