Master of Engineering (Materials)

    • CRICOS Code: 069275C


    Semester 2, 2020 will be the last intake for this specialisation. Applications for 2021 will not be accepted.

    The Master of Engineering (Materials) is a 2–3 year degree (full-time) degree 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 Chemical Systems major in your bachelor’s degree, plus the required maths and science subjects, you’ll receive credit for these foundation engineering subjects and start in second year.

    Second and third year

    In the second and third year of the program (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a materials engineering student, you’ll focus on the processing-structure-property relationships of a range of materials. These include metals, polymers, ceramics, electronics and composites.

    Learn the fundamental concepts of atomic bonding, atomic scale structure, phase equilibria and methods of characterisation. With this knowledge, you’ll become proficient in the skills needed to advance nanotechnology, energy materials and biomaterials.

    Industry, research and design subjects

    Creative Innovative Engineering subject

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

    Industry project

    Work on a dedicated materials engineering investigative project with an industry partner in Industry Project. Gain industry contacts and insights into the engineering process and apply critical analytical skills, experimental research, modelling and simulation to generate real-world results.

    Individual and industry partnership research

    Conduct research alongside our world-leading biomedical engineering researchers in our Materials Engineering Capstone Subject. Work on 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.
