Overview

This program allows students to complete the Master of Engineering (ME) and the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) in two years of full-time study. The subjects offered in this course follow an integrated approach to professional practice through compulsory professional engineering subjects, compulsory subjects relevant to the major (as part of Master of Engineering), an independent engineering graduate project in the major and a set of electives (any engineering or IT subject).

This course is for students who have a bachelor's qualification in engineering and who want to combine the Master of Engineering with a specific major with the Master of Engineering Management. This enables students to gain engineering-specific skills and engineering management skills in an accelerated way and complete two courses in two years rather than three years individually.

Career options

Students who have a basic engineering undergraduate degree are able to enhance their ability and knowledge through master's-level courses in their respective majors, and gain knowledge and skills that enhance their ability to progress to engineering management roles.

F.1 Be able to conduct critical self-review and performance evaluation against appropriate criteria as a primary means of tracking personal development needs and achievements
F.2 Appreciate ethical implications of professional practice
F.3 Understand cross-cultural issues (regions or workplaces)
F.4 Be aware of global perspectives (needs, rules/regulations and specifications)

Admission requirements

Applicants must have completed a UTS recognised bachelor's degree, or an equivalent or higher qualification, or submitted other evidence of general and professional qualifications that demonstrates potential to pursue graduate studies.

It is a requirement that the bachelor's degree be in engineering and relevant to the applicant's proposed major, with no more than 25 per cent of subjects failed.

The English proficiency requirement for international students or local applicants with international qualifications is: Academic IELTS: 6.5 overall with a writing score of 6.0; or TOEFL: paper based: 550-583 overall with TWE of 4.5, internet based: 79-93 overall with a writing score of 21; or AE5: Pass; or PTE: 58-64; or CAE: 176-184.

Eligibility for admission does not guarantee offer of a place.

International students

Visa requirement: To obtain a student visa to study in Australia, international students must enrol full time and on campus. Australian student visa regulations also require international students studying on student visas to complete the course within the standard full-time duration. Students can extend their courses only in exceptional circumstances.

Recognition of prior learning

Due to the reduced duration of this course (two years full-time rather than the usual three years required to complete the courses individually), there is no provision for recognition of prior learning based on undergraduate studies.

Course duration and attendance

This is offered on a two-year, full-time or four-year, part-time basis.

The course is made up of subjects that provide students with flexibility. Classes are usually held in standard mode (weekly attendance) or in block mode (attend classes only two or three times during the session per subject).

Course structure

Students complete 42 credit points worth of coursework subjects and an independent engineering graduate project relevant to the major, and complete 42 credit points worth of engineering management/professional engineering subjects. This course also allows students to choose two electives worth 12 credit points that include any postgraduate subject in the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology; some subjects need prior approval.
