The aim of this subject is to develop sustainability awareness within the student and prepare them for their future careers in civil engineering where sustainability issues in conception, design, construction, operation, maintenance and demolition are critical. The first is to provide students with an in depth experience of the functioning of government departments, agencies and engineering consultancies in the state of Victoria. The second is to impart a detailed understanding and appreciation of the importance of the application of sustainability principles to all civil engineering practices. Students will gain skills in effective communication, how to undertake problem identification, formulation and solution, an understanding of sustainable design and development and an understanding of and commitment to professional and ethical responsibilities.
