Course sub-headings

Course overview

Deakin University's postgraduate Engineering program has been designed to strengthen, build on and extend your understanding of the engineering principles required to build successful engineering careers in Australia and overseas.

As a student, you will gain technical skills, a positive approach to problem solving and the ability to work in a team, enabling you to work on complex projects immediately.

You can choose from specialisms in Engineering Management, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Civil Engineering, Water Engineering or Electrical and Renewable Energy Engineering . The specialisms all provide expertise in areas of high demand for graduates.

The Master of Engineering can be undertaken as a stand-alone or exit qualification from the Master of Engineering (Professional) program.

Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.

Equipment requirements

Students must have access to a suitable computer and a network connection.  Information about the hardware and software requirements may be obtained from the School of Engineering, telephone 03 9244 6699.

Details of specialisations

Engineering Management - unit set code SP-S000077

Waurn Ponds (Geelong)

Industry expects professional engineers to lead, develop and manage products throughout their life cycle. The expectations later grow towards marketing, servicing and supporting the product, while ensuring its sustainability. This specialisation has been developed to equip students with the skills employers are looking for by combining engineering project management with engineering leadership. Graduates will have the expertise necessary to devise flexible, real solutions for the challenges faced by today’s engineering leaders.

SEB723Engineering Project Management

SEB724Engineering Leadership

Mechanical Engineering Design - unit set code SP-S000049

Waurn Ponds (Geelong)

Product development and innovation are key drivers for Australian industry. To meet this demand, this specialisation brings together studies in leading computer-aided engineering technologies, and
advanced materials and manufacturing, while drawing on Deakin’s world-class research teams in a practical and applied approach. You will acquire a solid understanding of product and process modelling
and designing for sustainability.
