Civil College

Civil engineering is a major contributor to the success of the modern world and to the quality of life of humans. The practice of civil engineering solves problems and develops important infrastructure using mathematics and scientific principles.

Civil engineers work in a wide range of industries to plan, design and construct many facets of the built environment. Their work is present in land developments, buildings, roads, bridges, drainage systems, pipelines, towers, coastal installations, harbours, airports and railways.

They’re also responsible for protecting and restoring the natural environment including playing an important role in bringing about a more sustainable future.

The Civil College represents EA members working in civil engineering roles around Australia. Some of our key functions are to:

  • Set discipline standards for professional engineers, technologists and associates.
  • Guide the content of civil engineering undergraduate courses.
  • Enter into mutual recognition agreements with kindred bodies.
  • Conduct research and development.
  • Explore discipline related initiatives and provide guidance on continuing professional development (CPD) policy.
  • Facilitate technical conferences, meetings and events.
  • Publish learned papers and other resources.
