What will I learn?

The Master of Engineering is designed to develop your expertise through advanced courses and specialised electives. The program is a pathway to becoming an accredited engineer and has been submitted for accreditation to Engineers Australia.

The world is changing fast. Rather than fighting change, at UQ we believe it’s something to embrace.

Postgraduate engineering studies will prepare you for more senior, leadership roles so you can boldly ask questions in new and challenging ways.

This three year program is designed to develop your expertise through advanced courses and specialised electives. It's a pathway to becoming an accredited engineer and has been submitted for accreditation by Engineers Australia.

Discipline focussed courses coupled with practical research or industry based projects will give you the confidence and capability to solve complex engineering challenges in a changing world.

Here, you’ll study alongside peers who share your passion for solving human problems such as climate change, overpopulation, network security and more.

Bioengineering

Solve bio-related challenges facing our society by producing chemical building blocks, therapeutical drugs (biopharmaceuticals), tissue engineered organs, new medical imaging technology and diagnostic devices.

New discoveries and modern technologies used in biology and medicine have led to the rapid change and growth of biomedical research and industry transitioning to sustainable operations. Rapid developments in the field of synthetic biology and its associated methods, including more widely available gene editing techniques, have substantially increased our capabilities for bioengineering.

As our ability to modify and control biological systems increases, biological processes are replacing chemical and mechanical processes due to their inherent advantages of renewable resources, mild operation conditions and minimal waste problem. Bioengineering creates the opportunity to solve health and environmental problems.

Careers

You will work at the interface of biomedicine and engineering. Examples of bioengineering applications include:

Cell engineered to produce chemical building blocks
Therapeutical drugs (biopharmaceuticals)
Tissue engineered organs
New medical imaging technology
Diagnostic devices
