USQ is the only providers of Agricultural Engineering degrees in both Australia and New Zealand, and has links to the world class research centre – National Centre for Engineering in Agriculture. Therefore, if you want to become a Professional Engineer, and have a 3 year engineering degree but no work experience, USQ's Master of Engineering Science (Agricultural Engineering) will get you there.
Throughout the degree there is an emphasis on practical experience and preparing you thoroughly for the engineering profession. In addition to the hands-on laboratory sessions and 60 days industry experience, you will complete a research project and dissertation applying all your formal knowledge to a real world problem. Whether this is sustainable agricultural production, the environmental impact of intensive agriculture or water allocation, your project will provide insight to the profession of an Agricultural Engineer.
The research project and dissertation can also be a stepping stone to further research degrees, such as PhD.
