Program Information Set
Extend your knowledge
USQ’s Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science (Civil Engineering) is ideal if you have a three year engineering degree and you want to extend your knowledge in civil engineering. You don’t even need work experience to commence your postgraduate studies in this degree.
If you studied your undergraduate degree in a different area of engineering, this degree will allow you to change your career path and specialise in civil engineering.
Through this four unit degree, you will study advanced level civil engineering, empowering you to plan, design, construct and maintain infrastructure.
Further studyWhen you complete your Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science you could take the credit from your studies and go on to complete the Graduate Diploma of Engineering Science. You could even go on to complete the Master of Engineering Science where you will have the opportunity to do a research project and dissertation to apply your formal knowledge to a real world issue.
The Graduate Certificate of Engineering Science is not accredited by any professional bodies other than the University of Southern Queensland. It does however provide a pathway to the Master of Engineering Science which is provisionally accredited with Engineers Australia for membership as a graduate Professional Engineer.
As a civil engineering graduate, you could work in construction, structural, transport or water supply distribution engineering. Your experience could land you a job in some of the largest construction projects in the engineering world.
