Find out as much as possible about the course and talk to past students to learn about their experiences. Undertaking postgraduate coursework while working full-time can be challenging so it is worthwhile investing in ways to make your learning experience more effective to maintain a balance in your life.

Ally Ribalko, Master of Engineering Science

Energy systems engineering is undergoing a renaissance due to the introduction of intelligent power supply systems such as smart grids. The growing need to interface renewable energy generation sources with the conventional electricity grid, and the increasing use of electric motors in everything from smartphones to hybrid cars and satellites, is also boosting job opportunities in Energy Systems.

 

This program offers a broad range of theoretical and applications-based electives providing a deep, broad knowledge across several areas. Perfect for electrical engineers wishing to upgrade their skills.

 

The Master of Engineering Science program promotes flexible learning as a keystone of the program – it is designed for students who already have a four year accredited engineering degree and who now wish to broaden their job prospects through cross training, re-training or specialisation.  This program takes two years to complete (students may be granted credit for some courses. Those with a degree or extensive professional experience in a related area can apply for credit of up to 50% of a program); it is a non-accredited program, and does not offer industrial training.

 

The typical program structure comprises sixteen courses, broken down into: four Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, five Advanced Disciplinary Courses, three Research Courses and four Electives.

 

Required Background

Students need a recognised four year Bachelor degree in engineering with a minimum 65% average in Electrical Engineering or similar.
