The Master of Professional Engineering has been designed for students who wish to broaden their professional engineering knowledge and to undertake studies that will further strengthen a chosen field of engineering. The course has an industry focus through contemporary research and project work.
This postgraduate course will further build on a student’s cognate undergraduate engineering qualifications by developing engineering related professional management and communication skills, research methods and principles, and strengthening a chosen engineering specialisation. Key features of this course include the Professional Engineering Entrepreneurship Project unit and the Professional Industry Project. Both these units provide students with opportunities to gain awareness, experience and links to industry, whilst enabling them to apply their knowledge, techniques and skills to solve industry related problems.
The course is aimed at engineers who seek to diversify their career and to build on their current engineering specialisation with contemporary studies. Graduates will be able to lead and apply advanced technical and management skills to the design, procurement and maintenance of engineering projects. The course will also provide a pathway for graduating students to undertake PhD research in one of the specialist areas of engineering.The Career Success Program focuses on career planning and employment readiness through one-on-one career coaching sessions and workshops that include opportunities to meet with employers, learn career skills and prepare for your future.
