Overview:

Environmental engineers create sustainable solutions to environmental challenges. Students in this specialisation learn from staff active in research areas specialisations such as hydrology, irrigation, water management, waste management and energy systems. The course has a strong focus on sustainability and project management.

Guest lectures and seminars by industry professionals are available to students, along with community project work and site visits that combine theory with practice.

Career opportunities exist with: agencies for conservation, natural resource management and environmental protection, in-house and external consultancy groups for the private and public sector on sustainability issues, and international sustainable development work

The Master of Engineering (Environmental) has full accreditation with Engineers Australia and EUR-ACE®.

Learning Outcomes:

To produce graduates who are skilled in environmental engineering principles and have the ability to apply them to complex, open-ended engineering tasks and problems.

Structure & Available Subjects:

The Master of Engineering (Environmental) consists of 300 points - 212.5 points core, 12.5 points selective and 75 points elective subjects, as detailed below.

Advanced standing will be awarded for equivalent subjects taken in prior study to applicants on the following basis:
