The course is not suitable for graduates of a four-year undergraduate degree, with Engineers Australia accreditation in the same discipline. Those holding an EA accredited qualification and seeking a masters level qualification in the same discipline are encouraged to consider applying for entry to the Master of Philosophy or Master of Engineering Management.
Applicants seeking entry who do not hold a four year Engineering degree are required to first complete the one-year Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering.
This major provides you with extensive theoretical, laboratory, design and research experience. You will learn about technological advances in automation and control, and management of big data in resources, energy and chemical process industries. Environmental sustainability is also a focus.
During the course, you will gain at least 12 weeks of exposure to engineering professional practice and keep a formal log book to record your experience. In your final year, you will complete a major research project that will draw upon and integrate the knowledge and skills you attained through the course.
Most research projects are based on the supervisor’s research area, but some are industry projects, usually as a follow-up from your engineering vacation work.
Some projects may be selected for publication in academic journals or conference proceedings.
This major sits within the Master of Professional Engineering degree. To apply for this major, you will apply for the Master of Professional Engineering.
