What will I learn?

The Master of Professional Engineering (Accelerated) is the ideal two-year full-time degree for those engineers who have previously graduated with an undergraduate engineering degree in a related field seeking recognised accreditation to practice in Australia and overseas.

The civil specialisation will teach you about planning, designing and testing structures within the built environment.

This accelerated version of our Master of Professional Engineering degree is designed to provide you with deep technical skills in your chosen field of engineering combined with professional development in the areas of communication, leadership, and time and resource management.

It will also help you develop the sound communication, management and decision-making capabilities necessary to interpret and discuss complex issues in your area of specialisation.

The program will provide you with the engineering professional practice and research skills that lead to recognition as an Australian graduate engineer.

Career Pathways

Career paths for civil engineering graduates include construction and mining companies, engineering and infrastructure consultants, municipal councils, public works, airport and harbour authorities, banks and project management consultants.
