Description

The Master of Advanced Engineering is designed for graduates who already have an undergraduate degree in engineering in a cognate discipline. The first year of the course is designed to develop skills in leadership, engineering design and data analysis. In the second year, you will complete core units to master your discipline and develop breadth of knowledge across engineering disciplines.

The Master of Advanced Engineering is available in the following specialisations:

  • Chemical engineering
  • Civil engineering (Infrastructure systems)
  • Civil engineering (Water)
  • Civil engineering (Transport)
  • Electrical engineering
  • Materials engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Energy and sustainability

Note: Students at Malaysia can only complete the energy and sustainability specialisation. This specialisation is not available for study at Clayton.

Upon successful completion of this course it is expected that you will be able to:

  1. understand, reflect critically upon, and proficiently apply the relevant sciences and scientific methods underpinning at least one specialist engineering practice area, to design and critically appraise solutions to complex problems.
  2. identify and critically appraise current developments and advanced technologies, and apply knowledge of these to at least one specialist area.
  3. engage in an internationalised world by reflecting on the social and environmental impact of at least one specialist engineering practice area, and contextualise complex design solutions to appropriately consider the impact on an international community.
  4. determine, analyse and proficiently apply theoretical, experimental, and numerical simulation of phenomena to predict, design, control and optimise the performance of complex engineering systems.
  5. apply systematic engineering synthesis, critical judgement, design processes, project management and innovative approaches to solve complex problems.
  6. articulate justifications, critique and interpretations of theoretical propositions, methodologies, design conclusions and professional decisions to specialist and non-specialist audiences.
  7. conduct independent investigation and critical reflection as a means to maintain ethical accountability in professional decisions.
  8. exhibit competent and effective team membership and leadership in a multi-disciplinary, cross-cultural environment.

Structure

The course comprises 96 points structured into five parts, Part A. Common core units, Part B. Enhancement units, Part C. Technical elective units, Part D. Discipline core units and Part E. Engineering project units. All students complete Part A, Part B and Part D. Depending upon prior qualifications you may receive credit for Part C and Part E.

Note: If you are eligible for credit for prior studies, but prefer to do a longer form of the course (Parts A-E), you may elect not to receive the credit.

Part A. Common core units

These units are designed to establish IT literacy and develop essential skills that translate theory to engineering practice.

Part B. Enhancement units

These units are designed to provide breadth; either outside of the chosen engineering specialisation and/or in disciplines allied with, and supportive of engineering (namely Information Technology and Business).

Part C. Technical elective units

These units are designed to deepen your understanding of specific topics and advanced elements within your discipline.

Part D. Discipline core units

In this part you will identify, interpret and critically appraise current developments and advanced technologies, and apply knowledge within your discipline.

Part E. Engineering project units

In this part you will undertake two, year-long projects. The first is a research project, where you are invited to work closely with a faculty academic in their discipline, on a topic of your choice. The second is a design project developing a depth of design skills in your discipline.
