This degree offers students the chance to specialise in cutting edge technologies aligned to their career pathways. It is suitable for engineering graduates who wish to pursue further studies, as well as engineers with relevant work experience.
Mechanical engineering is concerned with the management of people and resources, the creation and use of new technologies and the design and development of new materials, processes and products. This mostly involves ‘things that move’, such as motor vehicles, aircraft systems, engines, pumps, gas turbines, industrial plants, air-conditioning/refrigeration systems, manufacturing processes, building services and even space stations.
With a strong focus on design and hands-on experience, graduates can obtain the knowledge of design and engineering sciences through courses such as heat transfer and thermodynamics, dynamics and control, aerodynamics, structural design and solid mechanics as well as a range of advanced technical coursework in specialist topics.
The Master of Engineering comprises a foundation year and an advanced studies year. The foundation year consists of a set of courses designed to ensure that students acquire a level of expertise in the relevant specialisation. The program gives students the opportunity to study technical courses at an advanced level and the opportunity to engage in a research project.
An exit path will be available for students completing only the foundation year, after they satisfy a set requirement in the relevant discipline. In this case a graduate diploma will be awarded.
To remain in this program, students must maintain a high grade point average (GPA) throughout their candidature.
The Master of Engineering (Mechanical) is *accredited by Engineers Australia.
*It is part of Engineers Australia’s practice to only afford provisional accreditation before the first cohort of students graduates, therefore this degree is provisionally accredited.
