This course provides an opportunity at master's level for recently graduated engineers and technical specialists to deepen the knowledge and skills gained in their first degree while expanding their managerial and professional engineering knowledge.

The course is designed to allow students to gain in-depth knowledge and skills in the particular major that they undertook as part of their undergraduate engineering studies.

This course provides an opportunity at master's level for recently graduated engineers and technical specialists to deepen the knowledge and skills gained in their first degree while expanding their managerial and professional engineering knowledge.

The course is designed to allow students to gain in-depth knowledge and skills in the particular major that they undertook as part of their undergraduate engineering studies. The subjects offered follow an integrated approach to professional practice through compulsory disciplinary and professional engineering subjects, compulsory subjects relevant to the chosen major, an independent engineering graduate project in at least one field of engineering, and a set of electives (any engineering or IT subjects, some with prior approval). Students also have the option of not electing a major.

Course duration is one and a half years, however applicants with a recognised bachelor's degree in engineering are eligible for credit recognition of up to four subjects and are thus able to complete the course in one year on a full-time basis.

This course allows students to choose a program of study that deepens the body of knowledge acquired in their first degree as well as expands knowledge boundaries into policy and engineering management areas. It also provides a unique opportunity to deepen their knowledge and gain practical skills by undertaking an independent engineering graduate project in a particular major. Students also have the option of not electing a major.

Course structure explained

Candidates complete coursework subjects and an independent engineering graduate project, totalling 72 credit points of study. The project component consists of a preparatory subject and a project (in the area of the major) and is typically undertaken after completing one session's worth of coursework.

Some postgraduate program majors may require students to complete a number of prescribed subjects with or without opportunity for electives. Subjects are selected from postgraduate programs offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology.

A major is granted if subjects worth 42 credit points (including the project component) are completed within a particular postgraduate program major.

Additional information

Course duration

This course is offered on a one-year, full-time or two-year, part-time basis for applicants with a UTS recognised bachelor's degree in engineering. For applicants without recognised qualifications, it is offered on a one-and-a-half-year, full-time or three-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 block mode (attend classes only two or three times during the session per subject). Some subjects may be available in distance mode.
