Semester 1
Engineering Construction and Surveying
6    A CIVL1900. Some statistical awareness is an advantage and co-enrolment in MATH1005 Statistics is advised. HSC Mathematics Extension 1 or completion of (MATH1001 or MATH1021) and MATH1002 are sufficient for non-statistical maths preparation
N CIVL2810

In recent years - the course has included a 1.5 day camp at Webbs Creek (about 80km from Sydney). The camp is located in a bushland setting. It aims to provide valuable practice in practical field survey and has a secondary aim of providing a basis for social gathering (this aspect being requested in student feedback over recent years)

Project units
Project Management Capstone Project A
6    P [24 cp of 2000 or 3000 level units of study]

It is expected that the project will be conducted over two consecutive semesters and that the majority of students will start in Semester 1. Commencement in Semester 2 requires permission of the course coordinator and School`s Director of Learning and Teaching and will only be allowed where there are good reasons for doing so. Students considering this option should discuss it with the the course coordinator at least one semester before they intend to start.
Semester 1
Project Management Capstone Project B
6    P [24 cp of 2000 or 3000 level units of study] AND PMGT3850
Semester 2
