    What will I study?

    Overview

    The Master of Engineering (Structural) 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 Civil 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 (or equivalent), you’ll focus on your chosen engineering discipline. As a structural engineering student, your focus will be on designing, developing and evaluating materials and systems used in the construction of load-bearing infrastructure projects including roads and railways.

    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 gain work experience through our academically credited internship subject. Running over a 10–15 week period, you could intern for an organisation in the infrastructure, property, built environment, oil and gas, engineering consulting or construction sector.

    Creating Innovative Engineering subject

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

    Integrated Design – Infrastructure subject

    From designing suburban precincts to renewable energy supply systems, you will build your advanced engineering design skills through our Integrated Design – Infrastructure subject.

    Integrated Design – Civil subject

    Alternatively, you could learn how to design civil infrastructure from railway stations to stadiums with our Integrated Design – Civil subject.
