Engineering

Advanced Diploma of Civil and Structural Engineering

National ID: 52724WA | State ID: 3745

Want to work on international engineering projects?

Gain advanced skills in the design and drafting of engineering plans to Australian and New Zealand standards and you could be working on local, interstate or international engineering projects.

This comprehensive qualification in civil and structural engineering could see you working on projects ranging from skyscrapers to intricate road designs.

This course will extend your study of the design and construction of civil works like dams, structures and pipe networks that is covered in the Diploma course.

While the emphasis is on producing working drawings for civil works which are used to communicate the engineers designs to the workers involved in constructing the works, you can participate more in the design decisions that are made.

You will learn a range of engineering drafting standards and receive exposure to CAD programs selected from autocad, Revit and 12D. You will extend your ability to address technical issues beyond what is achieved in the Diploma course.

Your qualification prepares you for roles such as:

Civil or Structural Draftsperson, Civil or Structural Design Draftsperson, Senior Draftsperson, Design Draftsperson or Engineering Associate.

Further Study Option(s)

Successful completion may lead to Curtin University's Bachelor of Engineering (Civil and Construction) with the possibility of advanced standing.
