Study the Master of Engineering (Professional) and you’ll develop technical skills, a positive approach to problem solving and the ability to work as part of a team, while focusing on practical experience and a supervised research or industry project that provides you with the advanced project management skills required to tackle complex, industry-focused problems head on.
Throughout the degree you will acquire advanced engineering skills and the forward-thinking, innovative and entrepreneurial skills employers are looking for, while strengthening and extending your understanding of engineering through the pursuit of specialised study in either Engineering Management, Mechanical Engineering Design, Electronics Engineering or Electrical and Renewable Energy Engineering – the choice is yours. You will have world-class facilities and equipment at your fingertips with access to the Centre for Advanced Design in Engineering Training (CADET) and the Geelong Technology Precinct (GTP) – home to the Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM), Centre for Intelligent Systems Research (CISR), CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering and the Australian Future Fibre Research and Innovation Centre.
Deakin’s Master of Engineering (Professional) partners with industry to provide you with practical work experience opportunities, the capacity to apply your skills to real-world problems and the opportunity to form professional networks prior to graduation.
Engineering offers an exciting future for your working life, with a huge demand for engineering graduates in Australia and internationally. Skilled engineers are needed across all sectors, opening up excellent career opportunities around the world.
Units in the course may include assessment hurdle requirements.
Fees and charges
The tuition fees you pay are calculated depending on the course you choose.
The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is provided as a guide only based on a typical enrolment of students completing the first year of this course. The cost will vary depending on the units you choose, your study load, the length of your course and any approved Credit for Prior Learning you have.
Each unit you enrol in has a credit point value. The ‘Estimated tuition fee’ is calculated by adding together 8 credit points of a typical combination of units for that course. Eight credit points is used as it represents a typical full-time enrolment load for a year.
You can find the credit point value of each unit under the Unit Description by searching for the unit in the Handbook.
Learn more about fees and available payment options.
With strong demand for professional engineers continuing to increase, engineering graduates can be selective about the location and type of employer they want to work for. Employers are looking for graduates who are fully equipped with advanced engineering skills and capable of starting work projects immediately. Graduates of this course may find career opportunities in a wide range of industries associated with their study area producing job-ready graduates that industry is looking for.

Approved by Faculty Board 14 July 2016
To complete the Master of Engineering (Professional), students must attain 16 credit points. Most units (think of units as ‘subjects’) are equal to 1 credit point. So that means in order to gain 16 credit points, you’ll need to study 16 units (AKA ‘subjects’) over your entire degree. Most students choose to study 4 units per trimester, and usually undertake two trimesters each year.
The 16 credit points include 6 core units (totalling 8 credit points) (these are compulsory), 4 elective units (you can choose which ones to study) and 4 units from a major study. You will be required to complete at least one major study as part of this course.
