Course details

CRICOS course code: 088196M

Level of study: Postgraduate


The Master of Engineering provides 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 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 recognized 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 recognized 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.

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


Upon successful completion of the Master of Engineering, you will be recognized as a graduate professional engineer in Australia. As an engineer, you will realize career opportunities in a wide range of industries including energy, infrastructure, and resources.

Possessing a Masters qualification will enhance your employability and elevate you above your engineering peers.
