The Master of Engineering will allow you to build on your existing engineering undergraduate degree by developing specialised technical knowledge in your chosen major.

Course structure

This program comprises core units of study along with electives to broaden your knowledge. You will complete a sequence of specialist units that comprises a major in your chosen field. It has a strong focus on project work to enhance self-directed learning.
Professional engineering management subjects will enhance your leadership and commercial capabilities, providing you with greater opportunities to advance your career. They include:

sustainable design, engineering and management
entrepreneurship for engineers
project process planning and control
safety systems and risk management.

Research pathways are available within all majors, allowing you to complete a research project as preparation for a research degree.

Depending on the level and type of your prior studies, you may be eligible for recognition of prior learning. This will reduce the length of your degree.

Geomechanical engineers examine the soil and rock layers that make up the earth in order to determine their physical and chemical properties. Read more
Geomechanical engineers examine the soil and rock layers that make up the earth in order to determine their physical and chemical properties. Using this information, they design foundations and earthworks structures for buildings, roads, and many other types of projects. They provide information and knowledge on how the soil and rocks beneath a proposed structure will behave under pressure.

The Master of Professional Engineering (Geomechanical) is a 3 year full-time course delivering technical and professional outcomes that will allow you to be recognised as an Australian graduate engineer in this field. This degree has been given provisional accreditation at the level of Professional Engineering by the industry governing body, Engineers Australia http://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/

In this course you will engage in areas of study including environmental geotechnics, rock engineering, and engineering behaviour of soils.

If your bachelor's degree included foundational engineering units, you may be given advanced standing in the Master of Professional Engineering. Entry pathways are available for students with widely varying backgrounds.

The MPE is comprised of foundation units of study, elective units in the area of your specialisation and a 12-week practical industry experience component. There are also a number of professional electives you can choose from and a capstone project in your final year.

If you are interested in continuing on to complete a research degree, a research dissertation can act as a research pathway.
