Master of Professional Engineering

Level: Postgraduate coursework

If you want to change careers and become an engineer, obtain accredited qualifications that will enable you to practise in Australia and internationally, or simply move into a different engineering field, you should consider the Master of Professional Engineering (MPE).

The MPE will provide you with the engineering professional practice and research skills that will allow you to be recognised as an Australian graduate engineer. It will help you develop the sound communication, management and judgement capability necessary to interpret and discuss issues involving significant complexity in your area of specialisation.

The Master of Professional Engineering is a three year program. Depending on the level and type of your prior tertiary studies, you may be eligible for advanced standing which will reduce the length of your degree.

The degree is comprised of foundation units of study, elective units in the area of your specialisation and a 12- week practical industry experience component. There are also a number of professional electives you can choose from and a capstone project in your final year.

Specialisations include Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical and Biomolecular, Civil, Electrical, Environmental Fluids, Geomechnical, Mechanical, Power, Software, Structural and Telecommunications Engineering.
