Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Environmental) with Honours

Environmental engineering is the scientific study of using engineering principles to improve our environment (air, water, land and natural resources), to provide healthy water, air and land for humans and for other organisms to live on and clean up polluted sites. It includes the planning and building of water and wastewater treatment plants, buildings, and industrial infrastructures. 

Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Environmental) with Honours focuses on the practical application of technical knowledge (such as mathematics and physical sciences, as well as their applications to all areas of environmental engineering) to real-life and societal problems. Fieldwork is mainly related to planning, designing, constructing, maintaining and improving the environment. It aims to produce graduates who can demonstrate capabilities to acquire and apply knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals, possess deep technical competence in the field of environmental engineering to identify, define, and solve problems, and can use a system approach to design and evaluate operational performance.
