    What will I study?

    Overview

    The Master of Engineering (Mechanical) 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 Mechanical 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 mechanical engineering student, your focus will be on turning energy into power and motion, and designing, constructing and operating devices and systems. You will focus on fluid mechanics, turbulence and biomechanics.

    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

    Build your skills and work experience through our academically credited Internship subject. Run over 10-15 weeks, you could intern at an infrastructure and construction, aerostructures, biotechnology, manufacturing, or mining and resources company.

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

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

    Mechanical Engineering Capstone project

    Conduct research alongside our world-leading mechanical engineering researchers in our Mechanical Engineering Capstone Project. 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.
