Engineer your own career advancement
If you are an existing engineering graduate looking for career progression, then UC’s Master of Engineering offers the chance to not only gain an advanced qualification in a field of your choice, but also help put you on the right path to success.
With a strong emphasis on Work Integrated Learning (WIL) and real-world problem solving, this course has been specifically designed to use your existing experience and combine it with a range of new research and practical experiences to enable you to gain the skills to exceed your personal professional objectives.
As part of this course you will also undertake considerable practical work experience which is a unique opportunity designed to expand your knowledge and network base, while simultaneously strengthening your ability to meet the intricate demands of the information and telecommunications industries.
Towards the end of the course you will also get the chance to undertake a major research project, allowing you to create and implement high-quality information systems for use in a real-life practical situation.
This course has been specifically designed to help you graduate with advanced knowledge and skills to confidently and competently assume a senior position within your specialisation – regardless of whether you have chosen a network or software engineering pathway.
Study a Master of Engineering at UC and you will:
- gain an advanced understanding of the specialisation (either network engineering or software engineering) including the principles to design, develop, operate and evaluate systems
- demonstrate a conceptual and comprehensive understanding of mathematics, electronics and signal processing
- design, implement and evaluate software engineering/network engineering projects which address contemporary and complex issues
- distinguish which engineering principles are appropriate to use in the solution of complex technological (software/networking) problems
- creatively apply relevant theories and techniques of data communication networks or software engineering to the interpretation, analysis and solution of technological problems
- build stronger industry networks
- graduate with a globally recognised and respected degree
Work Integrated Learning (WIL)
Work-integrated learning (WIL) is an integral component of the UC Master of Engineering course as it offers students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience and build professional relationships through real-work, or work-like placements.
To help encourage on the job learning, UC works hard to foster close industry connections with professional organisations, and as a result, can offer unrivalled access to industry partners with both the knowledge and resources to provide top level work placement positions and training opportunities.
As part of your studies you will be required to undertake a minimum of 12 weeks of professional work placement. Previous interships have taken placement at professional organisations such as: Intelledox, Omni Executive, Pursuit Technology, Qirx, Fujitsu Australia, Birdsnest, Agsafe, ThoughtPatterns Consulting, ESKAPEE, HydroAlgorithmics, ALLBIDS, VerveEd.com, Emanate Technology, Xero Australia and the Australian Taxation Office.
In your final year, you will also get to complete a capstone research project, producing and implementing a real-world engineering solution for a local business, government or community organisation.
The UC Master of Engineering is an advanced degree that is both globally recognised and industry respected. UC’s unique connections within the industry also means that students tend to establish strong, authentic professional relationships long before they actually graduate. This close connection often means that students stand out from the competition and have a higher chance of moving into a career in any one of the following careers:
- Software engineer
- Network engineer
- Software and hardware programmer
- Network and systems administrator
- IT project manager
- Games developer
- Business or systems analyst
- Database programmer
- IoT (Internet of Things) specialist
- ICT security engineer
- Software and network engineering consultant
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning engineer
Applicants need to have completed a four-year Bachelor of Engineering degree (or equivalent), or a three-year bachelor’s degree accredited by Engineers Australia at a Technologist level (or equivalent), or have completed the following University of Canberra degrees:
- Bachelor of Information Technology
- Bachelor of Software Engineering
- Bachelor of Science with a major in either Software Engineering or Network Engineering.
Accreditation with Engineers Australia at Professional Engineer level is being pursued.
