Course structure

This course requires successful completion of 320 credit points which includes: eight compulsory units (core), nineteen key program units taken as an Engineering specialisation, four alternate units, and one elective unit (Level 2 or above) which can be chosen from any discipline available at Sydney City Campus. Students must also undertake 12 weeks of industrial experience.

Course overview

The future presents significant challenges for managing the environment, infrastructure and technological developments. Effective solutions to these challenges will require innovative engineering, applied science and design strategies. At Sydney City Campus, we will prepare you to take on those challenges and succeed. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree covers major engineering domains, including civil, electrical and mechanical. You will get the opportunity to experience many facets of engineering before deciding on the area of specialisation at the end of first year.

Recommended sequence

At Sydney City Campus, you can complete your four year bachelor’s degree in three years and enter the workforce sooner. This bachelor’s degree consists of 32 units. With our flexible academic calendar, you can study 12 units in one year over three sessions. However, we recommend that you undertake a maximum of 3 units per session so that your study load is not too demanding. You will have less downtime between sessions so a lighter study load will help you to have a better chance at passing all of your units.

The units below are recommended for students starting their course in Session 2, 2018.


The Civil Engineering program covers the fields of structural design, geotechnical engineering and water engineering, together with infrastructure design and environmental engineering.

Work integrated learning

Students will need to complete 12 weeks of industrial experience which is a compulsory component of the degree. Through Navitas Professional at the Sydney City Campus, we can help you to find a placement where you can apply your learning and determination in the real world.

Professional recognition

Engineers Australia at the level of Professional Engineer.

Pathway option

Pathway options are available for students who may not qualify for direct entry into a degree program at Western Sydney University. Complete a diploma at SIBT and enter the second year of your university studies.

*Important note

All students undertaking the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) are required to undertake a readiness test prior to finalising enrollment. The readiness test will determine whether a student will study Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary or Mathematics for Engineers 1. Students who undertake Mathematics for Engineers Preliminary will be required to complete Mathematics for Engineers 1 during a subsequent session.
