    IT IS OFFICIAL. EASIEST ADVANCED ENGLISH EXAM IN 23 YEARS

    Gonna have to disagree with you there, lack of resources alongside with both teachers and students navigating through a new syllabus threw a lot of people off. But to each their own I guess. We also didn't have COVID, so it'd be an understatement to say the 2020 cohort didn't have their own...

    CAD not taught?

    Hopefully they just use another program that I'm not aware of. It'd be nice to learn CAD at a course in Uni without learning on the job.

    CAD not taught?

    So I learnt today that USyd doesn't teach Civil Engineering students on how to use AutoCAD or Solidworks throughout their degree which kind of surprised me. Is this true? I've always thought that knowing CAD is an essential skill for both graduate and senior civil engineers so not sure how...

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    As Engineers in your respective fields, what are some of the tasks you guys do in your everyday work? Are most of the calculations done using computers?

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    Are project engineers standard civil engineers or is that a role graduate civil engineers climb up the ranks to become first?

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    I see, thanks for the clarification.

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    Thanks for providing the insight! You mention that engineers don't tend to do well as PMs, so are project managers and civil engineers mutually exclusive careers? I bring this up since USyd offers a degree in "Bachelor of Civil Engineering/Bachelor of Project Management" which led me to believe...

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    I realise that there may not be many (if not any, lol) current project managers who'd be browsing a HSC forum, so maybe I'll redirect this question to Civil Engineers in general. What's your everyday work life like?

    Life as a Civil Engineer Project Manager

    Hi there. So I've been considering pursuing a career as a civil engineer project manager. However, I'm not too sure on what that entails, i.e. what is everyday life like working as a project manager in the civil industry (including hours at work, duties, etc.)? What was your path to becoming a...

    Thoughts on Project Management combined with Civil Engineering?

    Do you think a Masters in Engineering would be more beneficial over a Masters in Project Management in terms of further study?

    Thoughts on Project Management combined with Civil Engineering?

    As title states, what are your thoughts on Civil/Project Management as a double-degree? Does it actually help later on in becoming a project manager? I'm assuming after the degree you'd need to be working as a regular civil engineer for a minimum of 5 years until you can actually become a...

    WAM Boosters?

    Thanks for the info. In terms of picking electives, would picking an "easy subject" over something that may be more difficult hinder my overall knowledge within the Engineering field? Let's say for example I pick a subject as a WAM booster that is irrelevant to engineering instead of something...

    WAM Boosters?

    I've been hearing about people choosing WAM booster subjects but how does that work? Say for example, my degree is in Engineering; how would I pick WAM boosters if there are certain subjects I must complete? Do first years even have the option to pick WAM boosters? Do people pick these later on...
