Engineers use creativity, analytical skills and scientific understanding to make things happen in the real world. They shape our essential infrastructure such as roads and public transport, and ensure our communities have access to clean drinking water. This major will offer a fundamental grounding in how the built environment interacts with the natural environment through foundation study in civil and environmental engineering.
Through this course I knew I would be able to explore this inherently multidisciplinary field and make an informed choice about what career to pursue.
Rebecca completed an internship with Arup and has chosen to enrol in a Master of Engineering (Civil).
