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 start work on complex projects immediately.

 

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

 

The program's focus on practical experience and a supervised research project or industry project provides you with advanced project management skills. This experience equips you with the ability to apply your skills and knowledge to practical, industrially focussed problems.

 

The Master of Engineering (Professional) enables you to partner with industry and form professional networks. You may undertake a trimester of paid industry-based learning and a trimester of an industry-based project.

 

Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
