About the University of Sydney
The University of Sydney main campus occupies 72 hectares close to the centre of Sydney. It is Australia’s first university, having commenced in 1859, and has a rich mixture of classic and modern architecture.
The University includes specialist museums and beautiful recreational areas and adjoins the interesting suburbs of eclectic Newtown to the south, and the bohemian Glebe to the north. There are hundreds of active student societies on campus which run social events for all sorts of reasons.
The School of Civil Engineering has 1200 undergraduates and 500 postgraduate students. We have well equipped workshops and laboratories with excellent resources in structures, water and wind, geotechnical, materials, particles and grains and other areas. We will be pleased to demonstrate our facilities with you and welcome you to our Civil Student society events.
The School of Civil Engineering was home to John Bradfield, who designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the metropolitan rail system, and you will have a unique access to his original plans.
