Department of Civil Engineering & Construction

Welcome to the Department of Civil Engineering & Construction

The Department of Civil Engineering and Construction cover not just your classic civil engineering but also broader areas such as quantity surveying to sustainable building, so no matter where your interest lies, we have you covered.

What is sustainable building technology?

The need to use more environmentally-friendly and energy-saving materials in building and construction is increasingly in high demand. The study of sustainable building technology will show you how to utilise eco-friendly materials to construct the buildings of the future.

What is construction economics?

Construction economics covers a broad range of skills in the building industry, but mainly focuses on the cost side of construction which is a hugely important beginning for any building project.
