Master of Engineering (Civil) (postgraduate study only) @ Melbourne

Master of Engineering (Civil) (postgraduate study only)

Introduction:
The Master of Engineering (Civil) is the postgraduate course for students who wish to graduate as civil engineers. Prior to application, students must complete a three-year undergraduate degree in Commerce, Environments or Science, completed a major in Civil Systems, and received an average of 65% in the second and third year of their studies.

Degree Length

3 years full-time

 

 

Degree Structure

Core Engineering units (250 credit points) + Engineering Elective units (50 credit points) = 300 credit points

 

 

Campus

Parkville campus


Alternatively, students may have completed an undergraduate degree with an average of 65% and completed two classes of mathematics and two classes of any sciences. In the first year of the degree, students are required to complete eight compulsory subjects. In the second and third years, the Master remains relatively structured but offers up to four elective subjects for students to focus their areas of interest.

The Master is aimed at delivering a sound understanding of scientific principles in sustainability, environmental processes, hydraulic engineering and other sub-disciplines. Along with a strong theoretical emphasis, the Masters aims to provide students with generic skills for project management in civil engineering. The Masters is accredited by the Washington Accord, which means graduates will be qualified to work in a number of countries such as America, Canada and Japan upon graduation.

Core units (Preliminary year): Engineering Communication; Engineering Mechanics; Engineering Mathematics; Fluid Mechanics & Thermodynamics; Earth Processes for Engineering; Engineering Materials; Systems Modelling and Design; and Structural Theory and Design.

Core units: Geotechnical Engineering; Engineering Site Characterisation; Sustainable Infrastructure Systems; Structural Theory and Design 2; Engineering Project Implementation; Civil Hydraulics; Transport Systems; Integrated Design; Research Project; and Risk Analysis.
