Intended learning outcomes
The Master of Engineering Structures aims to produce graduates who are both skilled in structural engineering principles and have the ability to apply them to complex, open-ended engineering tasks and problems.
On the successful completion of the Master of Engineering Structures students should have:
- Gained advanced skills and knowledge in structural engineering principles which are in alignment with sustainable development;
- Had the opportunity to develop research principles and methods in the field of structural engineering;
- Cognitive skills to demonstrate mastery of theoretical knowledge and to reflect critically on theory and professional practice of structural engineering;
- Cognitive, technical and creative skills to investigate, analyse and synthesise complex information, problems, concepts and theories and to apply established theories to different bodies of knowledge or practice in structural engineering;
- Communication and technical research skills to justify and interpret theoretical propositions, methodologies, conclusions and professional decisions to engineering and non-engineering audiences;
- Technical and communication skills to design, evaluate, implement, analyse, theorise about developments that contribute to professional practice or scholarship in the field of structural engineering.
Graduates of Master of Engineering structures will demonstrate the application of knowledge & skills in many facets of structural engineering which encompasses design for sustainability and resilience to extreme conditions.
- With creativity and initiative to new situations in professional practice and/or for further learning;
- With high level personal autonomy and accountability;
- To plan and execute a substantial piece of scholarship.
The Melbourne School of Engineering closely maps subject level attributes and knowledge to align with the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), whilst also aligning with Attributes of the University of Melbourne Graduate, Engineers Australia competencies and its own School attributes.
