What will I learn?

Electricity is a key energy source in the development and progress of contemporary society. Since fossil fuels are a finite resource, developing alternative sources of electrical energy such as solar and wind is vital.

This major addresses challenges in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. Emergent technologies such as smart grid and distributed generation are covered in detail.

The Master of Professional Engineering equips you with the technical knowledge, skills and professional competencies that allow you to work as a professional engineer upon graduation.

Completion of this course demonstrates attainment of the Stage 1 competency standards for Professional Engineers required by Engineers Australia. Direct entry to this course is available if you have a four-year engineering qualification in a discipline related to your intended major. Otherwise, you may need to complete the Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering prior to enrolling in this course.

During the course, you must 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 or design project that will draw upon and integrate knowledge and skills attained through the course.
