Abstract In 2002, the School of Civil and Chemical Engineering at RMIT University began a project to renew its Civil Engineering program, ready for the new 2004 academic year. This program had high acceptance in the marketplace (high graduate employability) but average student satisfaction scores (as measured by the national CEQ data). As part of this renewal process, it was decided to shift the focus from traditional civil engineering to 'infrastructure engineering', the intention being to prepare students for the whole life cycle of an infrastructure facility, rather than just the detailed design phase. The renewal process itself was sponsored by the university as part of its Teaching and Learning Strategy - basing all new programs on graduate capabilities.
