This graduate degree package allows you to attain an undergraduate qualification in the Bachelor of Design and a Masters-level qualification in the Master of Engineering. It guarantees high-achieving students a Commonwealth Supported Place or International Fee Place in the Master of Engineering. 

No minimum weighted average mark (WAM) is required in the Bachelor of Design to progress to the Master of Engineering. At the end of the second year, students will nominate which stream of the Master of Engineering they are interested in pursuing and students who successfully complete the Bachelor of Design with an appropriate major (Civil Systems; Mechanical Systems or Spatial Systems) will automatically progress to their nominated stream of the two-year Master of Engineering.
Professional accreditation

The Master of Engineering is accredited in Europe through EUR-ACE®, and by the Washington Accord through Engineers Australia. This dual accreditation is unique in Australia and means our graduates have more international employment opportunities.

Graduate career opportunities

Engineering graduates work in a wide range of fields, including aeronautics, manufacturing, biomedical, construction and building, robotics, the environment and management consulting.

Our graduates are employed by companies such as:

  • AECOM 
  • Alcoa
  • BP Australia
  • ExxonMobil
  • Orica Limited
  • Origin Energy
  • PWC
  • Bosch
  • Shell 
  • Jacobs
  • OZ Minerals

Work-based learning available as part of the course

In the Master of Engineering, students will participate in subjects such as Creating Innovative Engineering as well as a final year capstone project, working with industry to develop new products and innovations.

Internships available as part of the course

Students have the option of applying for our for-credit internship subject as part of the Master of Engineering, which consists of a 10-15 week placement or arranging internships of their own.

Post graduate study pathways

Eligible students will automatically progress to the Master of Engineering. Streams available are Civil*, Mechanical*, Software*, Spatial, and Structural. 

*Can be completed as a Master of Engineering with Business.

Additional information

Successful applicants to this degree package must either enrol immediately or be granted a deferral in the intake following Year 12. Students must commence the Master of Engineering within 18 months of completing the Bachelor of Design.

Students who complete the Bachelor of Design without an appropriate major but with the minimum prerequisite subjects will automatically progress to their nominated stream in the Master of Engineering (3 years duration).
