Students who have undertaken the Civil Systems major will be able to rigorously integrate fundamental science to provide accurate information and optimum solutions to practical problems involving civil infrastructure. More specifically, core skills and knowledge that will be developed include: fundamental scientific comprehension that will lead to accurate computer modelling of civil systems, analytical and abstract thinking, problem-solving and design skills, ability to carry out laboratory experiments to eliminate or confirm possible solutions to complex problems. In all levels of this major, we will ensure the development of excellent communication skills that will enable our graduates to deliver complex scientific information in a clear and concise fashion.
The objective of the civil systems major is to contribute to the academic preparation of graduates who embody the University of Melbourne graduate attributes, as well as additional attributes more specific to the Bachelor of Science.
