tips for subject selection for civil engineering course final year?

I'm a civil engineering student studying in Melbourne. My final year is about to start soon. The available civil engineering electives are: =================== 1. advanced structural analysis (analysing structures matrix method and other calculation methods) 2. advanced structural design (studying the behaviour of concrete and steel and the use of Australian Standards) 3. ground hazards and environmental geotechnics (mainly about groundwater behaviour and leakage prevention techniques) 4. foundation engineering (design and analysis of the foundations of buildings) 5. Integrated urban water management (designing environmentally-friendly drainage systems within an urban context; frequently involves swale, biofiltration systems and other water treatment devices) 6. Water resources management (designing water treatment facilities in rural areas) 7. Transport planning (planning by measuring and analysing existing traffic flow of relevant routes) 8. Transport systems (not sure what this is about) =================== I must select at least 4 (up to 6) subjects from the above list. Can anyone provide some tips regarding what to choose? All of them look important to me but I hope to get some advices from people who have worked in the industry. What do you think are the "must-do"s among the list?
