Postgraduate courses

Take your engineering qualification to the next level with a Monash Engineering postgraduate program. We offer a range of postgraduate coursework programs, provided both on and off campus.

Why do postgraduate study?

Graduate study can be the foundation to a great career, it can turn an existing career into something brilliant, help you change careers, or aid in pursuing your passion.

What's involved?

Engineering coursework programs offer a balance of theory and practice, with an emphasis on industry-driven projects. Engineering programs, particularly at a Masters level, may include the option of a minor or major thesis component.

Master of Professional Engineering

In this master's degree you can build on your undergraduate experience, diversify your skills in a different specialisation or change your career and become a fully-accredited engineer. Whether you've completed undergraduate studies in engineering or in another field, the Master of Professional Engineering is the key to a career as an internationally recognised professional engineer. There are five engineering specialisations to choose from, giving you the opportunity to pursue your interests and career goals, or deepen your existing knowledge.

The two year program provides students who already have an engineering degree the opportunity to gain entry to the profession. You will build on your undergraduate experience and deepen your specialisation knowledge through core units and advanced level technical units in your discipline area.

If you want to change fields and specialise in another engineering discipline or have a degree in a different field, such as science, mathematics or pharmacy and want to pursue a career in engineering, the three-year conversion course gives you the technical skills and knowledge you need to become a practising engineer.
