The Master of Engineering Science (Mechanical Engineering) is one of the broadest areas of engineering, covering dynamics and control, thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, structures and solid mechanics and design and manufacture.
Core to mechanical engineering process is the ability to formulate a problem, identify potential solutions, analyse and model solutions and select the most appropriate solution within constraints. This approach is integrated within the program and is applicable across a range of professions, making graduates well prepared for a changing world.
Mechanical engineers are employed in diverse industries including the automotive, aerospace, environmental, medical, power generation and building industries to name a few. Our graduates work in design and development, testing and manufacturing, consulting firms, government agencies and educational institutions.
Employment opportunities in Australia and overseas range from very large mining, refining, construction and manufacturing companies to small companies in which you might be the only engineer. Some graduates start their own companies soon after they have gained the experience required to become a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng).
