Master of Professional Engineering

This course provides an opportunity at master's level for recently graduated engineers who have completed either a three- or four-year Bachelor of Engineering or Technology. Students can enrol into the Master of Professional Engineering and continue in the field of specialisation.

This course enables students to deepen knowledge and expertise in their field, and be ready-to-practice in engineering. Students can undertake a major and be recognised for this specialisation on their testamur. The Master of Professional Engineering is designed to incorporate an integrated approach to professional engineering practice through using compulsory professional engineering subjects, compulsory subjects relevant to the major, an independent engineering graduate project component and compulsory engineering practice stream. This structure allows for efficiency and flexible delivery of courses and enables us to offer subjects in a sustainable manner across the disciplines. Students who have completed a recognised Bachelor of Engineering that is accredited by Engineers Australia may consider applying for Master of Engineering ( C04271 ).
