Master of Engineering Science MENS

Program focus


The Master of Engineering Science is tailored to
provide a broad knowledge of Engineering and Spatial Science through
a specialised suite of technical courses in nine different majors.
The program is designed to provide an academic pathway to professional
engineering for those who are qualified engineering technologists,
or those who have a bachelor degree in a field allied to engineering.
This program will provide graduates with a pathway to professional
registration as practising Engineers in Australia.

Study Mode

Online Education, Distance Learning & External study modes available

Duration

2 years full-time or 4 years part-time or by distance
education

Professional accreditation

The program has been accorded provisional accreditation by Engineers
Australia and graduates are eligible for Graduate membership at the
Professional Engineer level.

Program aims

The aims of the Master of Engineering Science are:

  • to enable international and domestic students, who hold appropriate
    three or four year engineering qualifications or equivalent in the
    relevant specialisation (major field), to complete a postgraduate
    program that will lead to recognition as a Professional Engineer in
    Australia.

  • .the program can also provide a pathway to doctoral higher degree
    studies.

Exit points

Students who have completed four courses in the program may
satisfy the requirements for the Graduate Certificate in Engineering Science
and therefore may apply to exit the program with a Graduate Certificate in Engineering Science.

Students who have completed eight courses in the program may
satisfy the requirements for the Graduate Diploma of Engineering Science
and therefore may apply to exit the program with a Graduate Diploma of Engineering Science.

Students who are unable to satisfactorily complete the program
may apply to transfer to the Bachelor of Engineering or the Bachelor of Spatial Science as appropriate.
They may also apply to have the courses completed in the Master of Engineering Science credited to their new program.
