Industry connections

Industry plays a vital role in the development, delivery and assessment of the program through membership of the Programme Advisory Committee (PAC), which comprises industry representatives, academic staff and alumni.

Multiple campuses

Most projects in the Master's Research Project course are based at the Melbourne city campus. Some projects, for example, with laboratory activities, may require travel to the Bundoora campus. Industry-based projects can be done in the industry with an agreed arrangement between the project supervisor, the company and the student.

Study mode

This program is available:

  • on-campus, offering up to two intakes a year
  • via distance education, offering up to two intakes a year at the same time as the on-campus intake
  • in a 100% online delivery mode, offering up to 6 intake periods a year.

Note: 100% online programs do not provide access to Australian student visas.

Electives and program structure

The Master of Engineering (Management) consists of 192 credit points. After completing 48 credit points of study for four of seven specified core courses, you may exit with a graduate certificate. After completing 96 credit points of study for eight of the nine specified core courses, you may exit with a graduate diploma.

Once exited the program, you can re-apply to the Master of Engineering (Management) program. Credit points gained in the graduate certificate or graduate diploma qualifications will be considered for recognition of prior learning, subject to learning requirements in the Master program at the time of re-application.

In this program, you will study the following areas:

  • technology management
  • environmental management
  • performance management
  • risk management
  • engineering economic strategy
  • international engineering management
  • project management
  • quality management
  • logistics systems
  • systems engineering

Specialisations in a few of the above areas are possible through your final year research project courses.

In this program, you'll undertake specific courses that focus on work-integrated learning (WIL). You'll be assessed on professional work in a workplace setting (real or simulated) and receive feedback from those involved in industry or research. The Master's Research Project involves WIL through an industry relevant project or through a research-intensive project.

MC226 is relevant to students studying on-campus.

MC226DE is relevant to students studying through distance education.

MC226KP16 is relevant to students studying 100% online.

You can mix study modes to accumulate 192 credit points. All study modes lead to the same award of Master of Engineering (Management).
