The Master of Professional Engineering (Mechanical) is a flexible degree that will allow you to fast-track your career in engineering.
The program includes a variety of advanced engineering courses to help you extend your technical skills. You can choose to develop your expertise in mechatronics design, advanced estimation, mechanics of bulk solids and particulates, renewable energy conversion, bulk materials handling and transportation and computer aided engineering and manufacturing.
You can choose to diversify your engineering expertise with courses in mechatronics or electrical engineering, or you could broaden your skills base in a complimentary area such as business and management skills, entrepreneurship and innovation, design or environmental management. You will also complete an advanced engineering project (design-based or theoretical - the choice is yours), which can potentially be linked to industry.
The flexible nature of the program puts you in control. Whether you want to specialise or diversify, move into a more senior role, lead teams or projects, develop sophisticated research and innovation skills for R&D roles - you can choose courses to support your personal career goals.
2-year or 1-year?
If you are a graduate of an Australian Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) degree, or equivalent, you can complete the MPE in just one year.
If you are an international student seeking professional recognition from Engineers Australia* and the Washington Accord, or if you wish to extend your engineering and professional expertise in an Australian context, the 2-year MPE is the ideal program. Your study program will be designed to build on your prior studies and develop the core technical competencies to ensure you qualify -these will be chosen from areas such as managing engineering projects, modelling and control, engineering complexity, advanced mechanics of solids and FEA, mechanical design, fluid mechanics and CFD.
* Pending accreditation of this degree by Engineers Australia.
