Bachelor of Engineering (Environmental Engineering)


To solve engineering problems by applying the fundamentals of sciences and engineering sciences, including mathematics, statistics, physics, chemistry, computing, mechanics, materials and fluids.

• Work in a team in a modern, diverse, multi-disciplinary environment (workmates, managers, policy-makers and the wider community) using effective management techniques and communicating clearly to a variety of audiences both orally and in writing.

• Work with the highest acceptable engineering and environmental standards and professional ethics, adhere to occupational health and safety regulations while recognising the economic, environmental, global, social and legal contexts of their work.

• Utilise sophisticated engineering analysis, software and design tools to simulate the real world including computer aided design and modelling of engineering systems.

• Identify and assess global and national environmental problems and develop strategies to mitigate these problems in a sustainable manner within economic, social, environmental and ethical constraints.

• Use natural processes and design engineering systems with an appreciation of contemporary environmental issues.

• Design sustainable water systems in urban and rural communities taking into account water conservation, water resources, water quality, water management, and flood mitigation.

• Evaluate and improve waste management infrastructure and practices with a capacity to design for waste minimisation or zero waste, avoidance of hazardous waste using green chemistry concepts, material recycling and resource recovery, and life cycle analysis.

• Characterise contaminated sites and design sustainable remedial measures taking into account various geoenvironmental considerations.

• Design energy efficient and renewable energy technologies including hydro, biomass, solar, wind and wave power systems.

• Conduct environmental auditing and monitoring using environmental management systems and design environmental pollution control systems to minimise human impact on climate (or mitigate climate change).
