Internationally ranked as the number one School of our kind in Australia and one of the world’s top 12, our goal is to train the next generation of industry and research leaders.

We’re at the forefront of fundamental and applied research across all specialties within civil and environmental engineering with strengths in construction innovation, geospatial, geotechnical, humanitarian, infrastructure, sustainability, transport, and all forms of water engineering- from catchment to coasts.  Our award-winning academic staff are recognised world leaders in their fields, supported by over 70 full-time researchers.

This rewarding scholarship opportunity is competitive, with candidates expected to have exceptional academic credentials (Honours 1) and communication skills, as well as industry or other relevant experience following completion of their undergraduate studies. Candidates will also be assessed on their leadership abilities.
