Postgraduate study in Electrical Engineering allows students to consolidate a specialisation from an undergraduate degree, change direction to a new area within the field, or lay the foundation for a career in research and development.

 

The Master of Engineering (Electrical Engineering) is perfect for students who want to develop their technical knowledge and skills, and earn a degree accredited with Engineers Australia. The degree enables students to specialise in Electrical Engineering, and gain a depth of knowledge across a broad range of areas including signal processing, energy systems, control systems, microsystems and photonics.

 

The Master of Engineering takes two years to complete and industrial training is a component of the program. A typical program structure includes: six Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, five Advanced Disciplinary Knowledge Courses, two Engineering and Technical Knowledge Courses, one Design course and two Research Project Courses.

 

The Master of Engineering is designed for those students who do not have an accredited engineering degree, but do have either a non-accredited engineering degree, or have completed the equivalent of the first three years of an accredited engineering degree.

 

Required Background

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