What will I learn?

This two-year course provides a developmental path for professional engineers to master skills in selected engineering disciplines and the interaction of those disciplines. It aims to enhance your skills in dealing with more complex engineering problems and interactions between engineering technical domains and the broader context in which they exist.

The Master of Professional Engineering provides post-professional knowledge and skills in a range of engineering disciplines. As such, it will equip you with the abilities to become a leader in your chosen engineering field. The program offers both theoretical understanding, and practical applications of advanced professional engineering practices, with a focus on themed technical discipline areas and sustainable, ethical, and managerial abilities.

Our Master of Professional Engineering enhances the knowledge, practice, and professional employability skills of engineers in specific discipline areas at an advanced level. This course provides an integrated mix of specialist discipline complexity and evidence-based practice with future-focused professional skills development in a connected learning environment.

You can choose from four majors as part of this program: electrical and management, mechanical and management, electrical engineering or mechanical engineering.

Electrical engineering provides advanced theoretical understanding and knowledge of current professional engineering practices in electrical engineering. It focuses on the technical discipline area, sustainable and ethical considerations, and evidence-based practices.

This course is suitable for the practising engineer wanting to change engineering disciplines and attain postgraduate qualifications.

Career outcomes

As a graduate of the Master of Professional Engineering, you will be an Engineers Australia-accredited professional engineer with advanced cutting-edge knowledge and skills in a chosen engineering field or engineering management role. You will be able to lead and contribute to complex projects and respond rapidly and effectively to current and emerging local and global challenges. You will have research capacity for evidence-based practice, to imagine and realise change using management strategies, advanced design, collaborative decision-making and innovation in ethical and sustainable ways as appropriate to your role; you will be strategic in the use of digital technologies. You will be an effective collaborator and communicator in disciplinary and interdisciplinary contexts with knowledge of and respect for diverse cultural perspectives.
