Conversion Master's Programs
The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies offers a three year Conversion Master's Program, consisting of a Graduate Diploma (Professional Engineering) or Graduate Certificate in Engineering and the Master of Professional Engineering.
This program is aimed at students who have a non-engineering background, such as an undergraduate degree in Science, or an overseas Engineering qualification. The complete three-year program is designed so that students initially enrol in the foundation components of an Engineering stream, covering areas that were not part of their original undergraduate degree. This is done in the first year of enrolment in a Graduate Certificate or Diploma.
Once the foundation subjects have been completed and entry requirements met, students can then go on to the Master of Professional Engineering degree. This two-year degree covers the specialist and professional practice components of the selected Engineering stream.
Applicants for the Conversion Master's Program must satisfy the entry requirements set out in the tables for the Master of Professional Engineering for each stream.
Where students have completed the required entry subjects in a prior Bachelor's degree, advanced standing of up to one year may be awarded toward the program. Every application is assessed individually and an enrolment program is devised for each student to make sure that all students reach an equivalent level of theoretical, practical, professional and specialisation skills prior to commencement of the MPE.
Students must fulfil the entry requirements as follows:
1. Minimum Entry condition.
Must have completed a minimum of 48 credit points, or equivalent, of science-related units of study in their bachelor's degree relevant to the Engineering stream chosen;
2. Foundation Subjects.
2.1 Must have completed 48 credit points of foundation engineering units of study in their bachelor's degree relating to the field of engineering they wish to specialise in; or
2.2 Must complete 48 credit points of foundation engineering units of study in a Graduate Diploma or Graduate Certificate in Engineering at the University of Sydney.
The complete Conversion Master's Program consists of 144 credit points, and 3.0 years duration of full-time study or equivalent in part-time study.
As a requirement of the Conversion Master's Program, students complete a capstone project, which may either be a 24 credit point research dissertation or a 12 credit point research project. Students will work with an academic supervisor on a current research or industry-based project and write a thesis on their research outcomes. Students at the master's level will develop the experience and professional skills required to critically evaluate the research undertaken while working on their capstone project.
Industrial experience done as a 12-week work placement, or equivalent, is a requirement for completion of the Master of Professional Engineering degree.
The MPE degree is available in the following specialisations:
in the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering
Aerospace, Biomedical and Mechanical Engineering
in the School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
in the School of Civil Engineering
Civil, Environmental Fluids, Geotechnical and Structural Engineering
in the School of Electrical and Information Engineering
Electrical, Network, Power, Software and Wireless Engineering.
