About the Department of Infrastructure Engineering

Department of Infrastructure Engineering logo

The Department of Infrastructure Engineering sits within the School of Engineering and houses the vital disciplines of Geomatics, Civil Engineering and Environmental Engineering.


Our focus is on engineering infrastructure that’s sustainable. Infrastructure that considers the natural environment it supports, as well as the economy.

You’ll see this in our research and in the design of our courses with the interaction of other disciplines such as Commerce and Science from first year right through to our flagship Masters of Engineering. Just as industry integrates its departments, The University of Melbourne integrates its disciplines.

An integrated future…

In combining these disciplines, our vision for Infrastructure Engineering at The University of Melbourne reflects industry practice.

To this end, we’re not just equipping you for a career in engineering. Our aim is to share knowledge, build capability and manage information to solve complex engineering challenges and develop future leaders in the community.
