Master of Engineering (ME)
The Master of Engineering (ME) is a sought-after professional qualification in engineering and an excellent next step for Bachelor of Engineering (BE) graduates.
The ME programme provides an opportunity to carry out a significant piece of research in engineering.
Entry to the programme usually requires a BE degree with first or second class honours from Victoria University or equivalent.
The ME can be completed by thesis only, or be taken as a thesis and coursework:
- a 120 point Masters thesis (ENGR 591) or
- 90 point Masters thesis (ENGR 592) and 30 points of approved 400 or 500 level courses the BE or ME, including directed individual study courses, as shown below.
|ENGR 591||Thesis||120 points|
|ENGR 592||Thesis||90 points|
|ENGR 581||Directed Individual Study||15 points|
|ENGR 582||Directed Individual Study||30 points|
The ME may be endorsed with a specific subject, such as:
- Electronic and Computer System Engineering (ECEN)
- Network Engineering (NWEN) or
- Software Engineering (SWEN).
To be eligible for the award of Distinction or Merit, a candidate must complete the degree within 18 months. For part time students, the period may be extended pro rata to a maximum of three years.
Students who are interested in entering the ME programme are encouraged to discuss thesis ideas with relevant staff who may supervise their research.
