Master of Engineering (Electrical)

    • CRICOS Code: 069275C


    The Master of Engineering (Electrical) is a 2–3 year degree (full-time) depending on your prior study.

    Course structure

    First year

    In your first year (or equivalent) you’ll complete foundation engineering subjects – tailored to students from a non-engineering background. If you’ve completed the Electrical Systems major in the Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year. If you’ve completed another science or engineering degree, you may be eligible for advanced standing.

    Second and third year

    In the second and third year (or equivalent) you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a Master of Engineering (Electrical) student, you will be guided in acquiring core skills in electronics, control, signal processing, communications and power systems. Learn from leading experts in power systems, energy-efficient telecommunications systems and sensor networks that monitor the environment.

    You’ll undertake an industry, design or research project and gain the skills and knowledge to practice as a professional engineer.

    Industry, design and research subjects

    Internship subject

    Enhance your skills and build work experience through our academically credited Internship subject. Run over 10–15 weeks, you could intern at a biotechnology, aerostructures, oil and gas, automation, technical consulting, power solutions or computing devices organisation.

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

    Work on a real-world innovation challenge with an industry mentor through our Creating Innovative Engineering subject.

    Engineering Capstone subject

    Work alongside our world-leading engineering researchers in our Engineering Capstone Subject. Access an industry-partnered project, or pursue your own exploratory research. You’ll have the opportunity to present the findings to the public at our annual engineering showcase, the Endeavour Engineering and IT Exhibition .
