This course has a strong emphasis on engineering practice and will provide you with an opportunity to develop further skills and knowledge in your current engineering discipline, while at the same time developing your employability skills such as communication and teamwork. This course enables you to be recognised as a graduate professional engineer in Australia and as such, you will have career opportunities in a wide range of areas including the infrastructure, resources and energy sectors.

During your study, you will have opportunities to develop professional skills such as teamwork and communication at the same time as you are applying and further developing the theoretical knowledge you gained in your undergraduate degree. The authentic engineering projects, some with industry mentors, will help to prepare you for engineering practice. You will commence your study with a unit that introduces you to Australian Engineering Practice and three project-based learning units that will provide you with the opportunity to apply discipline knowledge and skills in an authentic project, in some cases with an industry mentor.

You will then select 24 credit points of units from topics including sustainability, mining, project management and rail. If you have no previous industry experience, as part of your elective study, you will undertake an internship in order to improve your understanding of engineering practice and obtain the 480 hours of approved engineering work experience required by Engineers Australia to be recognised as a professional engineer. Finally, you will complete a major research project through the units Engineering Research Project Planning and Engineering Research Project Implementation that will demonstrate your ability to work as a professional engineer.

For Australian students, this course is available in mixed mode, giving you the flexibility to study even if working or living in a remote location.

COURSE STRUCTURE
You are required to complete a total of eight units plus a major research project (96 units of credit) to be awarded the Master of Engineering. You will have the option of the following majors:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering

All international students, regardless of previous experience, will be required to complete an internship in Australia in order to give them the experience of working in Australia in an engineering workplace:

  • Students who complete the full-time internship will be deemed to have satisfied the Engineers Australia requirements
  • Students who complete a part-time internship will have to make up the remaining hours in other professional practice activities. Engineers Australia has indicated this is acceptable to them but we will require students to provide a log in the university required format of these activities.

Please note that students who have not completed the requisite work experience will not be able to graduate from the course.

I chose to study here because a masters in mechanical engineering was not offered in Papua New Guinea, and because I wanted to work as a professional engineer. Being a recipient of the Australia Awards Scholarship was a wonderful opportunity. There was a lot I wanted to change in terms of women in engineering and the issues we face in my country.
