Civil engineering in the UNSW

UNSW Faculty of Engineering - UHA

The Faculty of Engineering is part of the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia. UNSW was incorporated on July 1, 1949, and the faculty was established on May 8, 1950 with the faculty's inaugural session on June 7, 1950. It was one of the first three university faculties established by the Council (Resolution 54) and originally consisted of four departments, including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering and mining. Today it is the largest engineering faculty in Australia and offers the widest range of engineering programs.

organization

The faculty consists of eight schools:

The UNSW School of Surveying and Geospatial Engineering (1970 to 2013) was a school of this faculty.
