Rightio, the mid-semester break is already past us huh. It’s pretty ludicrous how fast the semester is going by. With only a mere couple months before the summer break, we are on the home straight. Hopefully the remaining pile of tests and assignments will go by somewhat quickly and painlessly! Seeing as my first…Continue Reading How about a Proper Blog Post!
Semester 1 Summary
Hi again everyone! How is it week 4 of sem 2 already? Kind of crazy how each week seems to fly by quicker than the last. I’ll definitely take it though if it means we are getting closer to a summer break. This new semester has already been quite the experience, with new classes and…Continue Reading Semester 1 Summary
Hey everyone! My name is Anton, and I am a Part II Civil and Environmental Engineering student. Hopefully I’ll be able to give a fairly good representation of the whirlwind that is Part II Civil and perhaps even provide some cheeky tips on how to survive the year. Unlike other specialisations, Civil has the vaunted…Continue Reading The Whirlwind
What a Year It’s Been
I honestly can’t believe that this year is almost over, and it’s nearly time for you to choose your specialisations for next year. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when I was in your position trying to toss up the pros and cons of a few of my favourite papers from the year. I’m…Continue Reading What a Year It’s Been

CIVIL 211: Structures and Design 1 –…Continue Reading Civil Still Has Five Papers
Since When Did I Need to Know How to Weld?
Welcome to ENGGEN 299, the compulsory workshop practical course all second years are required to complete before starting part III. The university website isn’t very helpful for figuring out what this course involves; when I checked it only really mentioned welding. Although the workshop course isn’t civil specific, I would’ve loved to know more about…Continue Reading Since When Did I Need to Know How to Weld?
Did You Know Civil Has Five Papers?
Civil is the bane of every other specialisation’s existence – by about two weeks into semester one EVERYONE knows that civil has five papers each semester, and that we love telling anyone who’ll listen. I remember thinking when I enrolled that I’d never be that kid who told everyone I did five papers, but it’s…Continue Reading Did You Know Civil Has Five Papers?
At the beginning of first year, my sole focus was to become a software engineer. Whenever I told people that I was studying engineering, I was quick to add on the fact that I hated bridges and I couldn’t image why anyone would want to be a civil engineer. You can imagine my embarrassment when…Continue Reading Surprises
Hi all, my name is Laura, and I am a Part II Civil and Environmental Engineering student. Understanding what the civil engineering degree is like is quite straightforward, as it is mostly based on the statics part of ENGGEN 121, although in our second year it also includes geology, surveying, fluids and good old mm2….Continue Reading Laura’s introduction
