The Master of Engineering will build on your previous knowledge and encourage you to develop a deeper and integrated understanding of the scientific and engineering principles of your engineering discipline. You will also be prompted to build leadership and research skills for the development of engineering or research projects.

This course specifically offers hands-on, practical experience, which will help you in your future career as a professional engineer. Special emphasis is placed on the themes of sustainability, creativity, teamwork, design, research and leadership. This course was developed in consultation with and is supported by, industry leaders. You'll graduate with the foundation of engineering knowledge which directly aligns with international industry requirements.

As a professional civil and structural engineer, you will continuously be challenging traditional civil and construction methods with creativity and innovation to help design and manage structures for the modern world. Key areas include structures, water resources, roads and traffic, bridges and marine structures.

As a professional engineer in the electrical and electronics industry, you will be able to contribute significantly to the design, automation and control of devices which make modern life convenient. You will be involved in electronics, telecommunications, biomedical applications, power generation and distribution, including renewable energy. You will develop skills in communication methods, electronic control systems and power engineering, together with a background of
sustainable engineering principles.

As a professional mechanical engineer, you will be able to make significant contributions to the design and development of machinery to improve transportation, and to provide affordable solutions for manufacturing and industrial production. Key areas include mechatronics, robotics, biomechanical applications, aeroplanes, cars, pumps and pipelines.

Career opportunities

Graduating from the civil and structural engineering major of this course may lead to professional opportunities in areas such as design, construction, water supply and treatment, infrastructure development, roads and traffic and project management.

Graduating from the electrical and electronics engineering major of this course may lead to professional opportunities in areas such as electronics, renewable energy, power generation, storage and distribution, process control, mining, oil and gas, consultation, and project management.

Graduating from the mechanical engineering major of this course may lead to career opportunities in areas such as design, machinery, manufacturing and fabrication, mining, oil and gas, consultation, and project management.

Professional recognition

ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA

The Master of Engineering is accredited by Engineers Australia at the level of professional engineer and therefore recognised internationally under the Washington Accord.
