Simon Breslin, Master of Engineering Science (Nuclear Engineering)

Get your qualifications and, when you get a job, work hard. There are a lot of opportunities out there if you remain positive, proactive and connect with people in your chosen industry.

Simon Breslin, Master of Engineering Science

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. There are two masters specialisations – Electrical Engineering and Systems and Control.

 

This specialisation offers a broad range of theoretical and applications-based electives within the discipline of Control Systems Engineering

 

The Master of Engineering Science 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.
