Overview:

Mechanical engineers focus on turning energy into power and motion. More specifically, this specialisation looks at the generation, conversion and use of energy, as well as the design, construction and operation of devices and systems. Students in this course learn from staff with world-leading expertise in fluid mechanics, turbulence, thermodynamics, control and biomechanics, and have the chance to undertake an industry project that is both research and industrially based. Group activities and site visits help to consolidate theoretical knowledge and prepare students to undertake careers in fields from automotive design and manufacturing to software programming; and in non-engineering roles in organisations such as banks and consulting firms.

Learning Outcomes:

To produce graduates who are skilled in mechanical engineering principles and have the ability to apply them to complex, open-ended engineering tasks and problems.

Structure & Available Subjects:

The Master of Engineering (Mechanical) consists of 300 points of study - 237.5 points core (including one selective) and 62.5 points elective subjects as detailed below.

Advanced standing will be awarded for equivalent subjects taken in prior study to applicants on the following basis:

Subject Options:

Total 300 points - 237.5 points core, including one selective (compulsory) and 62.5 points elective subjects from the lists below. Students must complete all 300 points of subjects, including all core subjects, or have advanced standing or exemption.

Students who enter without advanced standing for ENGR20004 Engineering Mechanics are strongly advised to enrol in this subject in the summer semester to assist with course planning.

The core and elective subjects are those listed below. The order of subjects below is one way of progressing through the course - students who meet subject requisites may tailor their individual study plan to take into account advanced standing and their study load. Students plan their study online and can seek further advice from Stop 1 on individual study plans.
