The Master of Engineering allows you the opportunity to develop professional skills such as teamwork and communication while applying and further developing the theoretical knowledge you gained in your undergraduate study.

This course begins with an introduction to Australian engineering practice and three project units, providing the opportunity to apply discipline knowledge and skills in an authentic project, in some cases with an industry mentor, and will help to prepare you for engineering practice.

You will then select four units from topics including sustainability, mining, project management and rail. Depending on your career aspirations you may also choose to pursue an internship.

Finally, you will complete a major research project that will demonstrate your ability to work as a professional engineer.

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

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.
