PLEASE NOTE - as of 2024 there will be changes to the course rules for both 'Business' and 'Structural' specialisations, with work underway to ensure updates are made as soon as possible.
Continuing students can follow the current course structure and rules. Changes to course rules will only apply to 2024 commencing students.
Graduates of Master of Civil Engineering would have developed unique skills and knowledge to apply to urban and infrastructure developments, environmental protection, water resource and energy conservation.
Students will acquire core civil engineering skills in the areas of structural, geotechnical, transportation and hydraulic engineering, sustainability, environmental processes and project management. Students will also acquire generic skills in communication, teamwork, problem solving skills, design and innovation in civil engineering.
Within the degree, students will have the opportunity to choose specialisation in structural, transport, geotechnical, energy, business systems, water resources and project management, and to participate in internship programs, industry-based projects and supervised research.
Upon completion of the Master of Civil Engineering, it is possible for a student to be awarded Master of Civil Engineering with Distinction provided a student has achieved a high level of academic performance. Eligibility of the Distinction award is dependent on a calculated distinction score.
The distinction score will only take into account Level 9 subjects undertaken at the University of Melbourne. This means Study Abroad and Exchange subjects will not be considered. One 12.5 point subject with the lowest mark will be omitted in the calculation of the distinction score. All level 9 subjects with credit points of more than 12.5 points must be included in the calculations. Only marks from the first attempt at a subject will be used. The average mark will be weighted by the credit points of the subjects. A Master of Civil Engineering with Distinction will be awarded if the score is 80 or above.
In order to achieve the Engineering Practice Hurdle requirement, students will need to document the attainment of professional skills at an adequate level. This will include the successful completion of any of the following:
1. Skills Towards Employment Program (STEP)
2. ENGR90033 Internship subject
3. CHEN90028 Industry Project subject
4. An agreed level of internship at an approved engineering form (without receiving University credit)
Completion of the degree will not be approved until this requirement has been met.
