Program objectives

The principal aim of the program is to produce graduates who
are highly competent in research and development work in engineering.
Specifically, graduates of the program will be able to demonstrate:

  • a broad knowledge of engineering practice in agricultural, civil,
    computer systems, electrical, electronic, environmental, mechanical
    or mechatronic engineering

  • an extensive and detailed knowledge of one significant aspect
    of engineering at a level that allows for the proposal and evaluation
    of innovative solutions to complex technical problems in that area

  • an exhaustive knowledge of, and ability to access, sources of
    information about Australian and overseas engineering practice in
    agricultural, civil, electrical, electronic, environmental, mechanical
    or mechatronic engineering

  • an ability to utilise sound research methodology and experimental
    design in an investigative study

  • an awareness of the practical applications and the implications
    for the industry of the research work that has been undertaken

  • a high standard of written communication on technical matters.

Program structure

The Master of Engineering Research involves a minimum of either
three terms of full-time research or six terms of part-time research
during which a candidate prepares a dissertation on the research undertaken
and submits it for examination. Research topics are selected from
areas of agricultural, civil, electrical, electronic, environmental,
mechanical, biomedical and mechatronic engineering.

The Master of Engineering Research may also incorporate a small
component of coursework, limited to a maximum of two unit courses,
drawn from the undergraduate programs of the Faculties of Engineering
and Surveying, Business and Sciences.
