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.
Fees and charges
This is a fee-paying course. Domestic students may be eligible for FEE-HELP assistance in paying these tuition fees. For more information about FEE-HELP go to deakin.edu.au/fees.
Fee paying place - Domestic (DFP)
A fee paying place is one for which the university does not receive any government funding. As such, students enrolled in these places are required to contribute the full cost of their course.
Fee paying places are available to domestic students. Domestic students are those who are Australian citizens, New Zealand citizens or holders of a permanent visa.
* The 'indicative annual course fee' cited has been provided as a guide only. It has been calculated on the basis of a typical enrolment of a student undertaking the course in 2015, and reflects the cost involved in undertaking a full-time quota of units within the specified discipline.
The actual fees charged by Deakin University will depend upon the discipline from which each individual unit is chosen, and may vary from the indicative course fee cited, particularly if units are chosen from a number of disciplines. The cost of each unit offered in 2015 can be viewed from the Unit Search.
Please note that the fees per unit/credit point may increase annually due to rises in the cost of course delivery and service.
Deakin assumes no responsibility for persons relying on 'indicative course fees' to calculate the total future cost of their course.
