As a engineering management graduate, you can gain employment in:
- power generation and distribution
- electronic design
- factory control
- local government
- public works
Postgraduate (further study)
A postgraduate qualification can be undertaken by students who have already completed an undergraduate degree or possess significant, demonstrable work experience. Postgraduate courses include graduate certificates, graduate diplomas, master’s and PhDs, as well as specialist programs for industry professionals.
Higher Degrees by Research (supervised research)
Research degrees are research based master’s or PhD programs that focus on a single area of expertise. They provide students the opportunity to carry out highly specialised research under expert supervision.
We have extremely high employability rates and almost all of our graduates are working.

Focusing on leadership
We've long-recognised the industry need for engineering graduates with strong management and leadership skills, able to devise solutions to today's challenges. As a result, our unique engineering management specialisation was developed.
Leading the way in engineering
Deakin engineering is ranked highly by Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA), a national research evaluation framework. ERA awarded Deakin the highest ranking possible of 5 in the categories of Materials Engineering and Manufacturing Engineering.
Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical and Electronic Engineering were awarded a ranking of 4 (classed above world standard), highlighting Deakin’s strength in engineering related research.
Our research excellence helps to inform our teaching curriculum to ensure undergraduate students are aware of the developments that will shape the engineering industries of the future.
