School of Mechanical & Mining Engineering

UQ Engineering's postgraduate coursework programs enable professional engineers to develop advanced, practical skills in specialised fields and to cross interdisciplinary boundaries. Our range of programs includes:

Master of Engineering 

The Master of Engineering is a two-year graduate entry program which provides students with the ability to advance their engineering knowledge and skills in one of a range of specialised fields and demonstrate their learning through practice-focused and advanced technical courses, experiential learning experiences, and research projects.


Master of Engineering Science

UQ's majors in Mechanical Engineering, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering, and Mechatronic Engineering of the Master of Engineering Science provides graduates with advanced skills in engineering analysis and problem solving. This specialisation is suitable for those interested in solving advanced technical challenges, managing projects and overseeing teams. Students of these plans develop greater understanding of complex engineering challenges and gain practical experience and knowledge of advanced engineering tools and processes by working through case studies and on individual projects relevant to their field. This specialisation builds on knowledge taught in undergraduate engineering programs and has been designed to produce engineers that will lead their companies and industries into the future.

Students take three core courses and one project course that defines their field of specialisation. Students can undertake a project in Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing, or Mechatronic Engineering. 


Master of Engineering Science (Management)

The Mechanical Engineering, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering, and Mechatronic Engineering majors of the Master of Engineering Science (Management) adds a component of business studies to the engineering science program. Management is a viable career option for engineers and this program provides both technical depth along with studies in business. All of the business courses in this program are taught by the UQ Business School.
