About offering

This information is relevant for students commencing study in 2020. If you plan to commence study in 2019, please view the current offering.
This course is designed for graduates from a four-year Engineering undergraduate degree in a related discipline. Applicants seeking entry who do not hold such a qualification are required to first complete the one-year Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering (GD-PROENG).

The Master of Professional Engineering equips you with the technical knowledge, skills and professional competencies that allow you to work as a professional engineer upon graduation.

Completion of this course demonstrates attainment of the Stage 1 competency standards for Professional Engineers required by Engineers Australia. Direct entry to this course is available if you have a four-year engineering qualification in a discipline related to your intended major. Otherwise, you may need to complete the Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering prior to enrolling in this course.

During the course, you must gain at least 12 weeks of exposure to engineering professional practice and keep a formal log book to record your experience. In your final year, you will complete a major research or design project that will draw upon and integrate knowledge and skills attained through the course.

You can choose one of the following majors:

What you'll learn

  • apply advanced and integrated knowledge and skills to design and lead the implementation of innovative solutions to complex engineering problems
  • incorporate cultural sensitivity and understanding, including that of local First Peoples, in decisions related to the design and implementation of solutions to engineering problems
  • recognise opportunities to lead the development and implementation of innovative engineering solutions to industry problems
  • apply advanced engineering skills and knowledge, sustainability frameworks, and ethical approaches to address issues of international relevance
  • develop and communicate effective and innovative engineering solutions to complex problems using an adaptive approach to technologies
  • develop and maintain professional networks and work ethically and responsibly to progress their career as a professional engineer

At Curtin, we understand that everyone’s study journey has been different.

You may have already studied some of the units (subjects) listed in your Curtin course, or you may have work experience that matches the degree requirements.

If this applies to you, you can apply for credit for recognised learning (CRL), which means your previous study is recognised and matched against a similar unit in your intended Curtin course.

A successful CRL application exempts you from having to complete certain units within your course and means you could finish your degree in a shorter amount of time.

CRL is also known as recognition of prior learning, advanced standing and credit transfer.
