What will I learn?

In our Master of Engineering, students build on their undergraduate study to prepare for a career as a Civil, Electronics, Mechanical or Microelectronic Engineer.

This course allows students to develop specialised technical knowledge in the same or related Engineering discipline.

It should appeal to recent graduates from a Bachelor of Engineering looking for postgraduate education to differentiate themselves from other engineering graduates entering the workforce. Similarly, it should appeal to early-career engineers looking to redirect their career or to move beyond junior positions.

There is scope to work on industry-based research projects, which combined with the technical focus, will benefit students looking for careers in R&D, consulting, design, and testing across a variety of engineering disciplines.
