Students with a background in civil, construction, transport, and systems engineering will especially benefit from this program as it prepares them for further career development in the structural engineering industry. Upon completion of this program, you will gain skills and knowledge in the latest and developing technologies in civil and structural engineering. 

The society in which we live today is fundamentally dependent on the structures that structural engineers design and deliver. The Civil - Structural Engineering (Online) program at Engineering Institute of Technology , therefore, addresses the specific core competencies and associated underpinning knowledge required of structural engineers.

The curriculum covers a diverse range of topics geared to producing well-rounded graduates equipped with the knowledge that employers require. This master’s program aims to provide the student with a multitude of tools and techniques, including those that tackle specific organizational problems and also those needed to design and implement engineering structures.

The Project Thesis is the capstone unit of the program and draws on the topic and reinforces the knowledge and skill base developed in the preceding units. As a significant research component of the program, this project will facilitate research, critical evaluation along with the application of knowledge and skills with creativity and initiative, enabling students to critique and potentially enhance current professional practice in the civil engineering industry. The Project Thesis requires a high level of personal autonomy and accountability.

Potential job roles include engineering and management positions in the following areas of expertise:

  • Construction
  • Roads
  • Railway
  • Transportation
  • Geotechnical
  • Structural
  • Waterworks
  • Earthworks
  • Irrigation
  • Town planning
  • Environmental


The program is an academically accredited program by the Australian Government agency (TEQSA).

This qualification is officially accredited within the Australian Qualifications Framework by the Training Accreditation Council (TAC), and EIT is approved by the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) for delivery by EIT in all Australian states.
