Civil Systems Major

Bachelor of Design

The Civil Systems major focuses on the planning, design and construction of essential services and infrastructure.

The Civil Systems major Handbook entry stipulates the complete requirements for the Civil Systems major.

Students who are planning to undertake the Master of Architectural Engineering will need to complete additional prerequisites. More information on prerequisites can be found here.

Always use the University Handbook as your primary course planning tool.

IMPORTANT

Each major has different rules for which breadth subjects may be taken. If you complete non allowed breadth, you may be required to complete extra subjects in order to meet the requirements of your degree. Please look at the “Non-allowed Breadth Subjects within the Bachelor of Design - relating to specific majors” page on the Handbook. A list of non allowed breadth subjects for this major is available underneath the course plans below.
