Overview

Compulsory Residential School

Some units in this course require you to attend a compulsory Residential School or Work Integrated Learning. Please see Course Features in the Getting Started tab for further information.

Course Overview

This course has a strong emphasis on engineering practice and will provide you with an opportunity to develop further skills and knowledge in your current engineering discipline, while at the same time developing your employability skills such as communication and teamwork. This course enables you to be recognised as a graduate professional engineer in Australia and as such, you will have career opportunities in a wide range of areas including the infrastructure, resources and energy sectors.

During your study, you will have opportunities to develop professional skills such as teamwork and communication at the same time as you are applying and further developing the theoretical knowledge you gained in your undergraduate degree. The authentic engineering projects, some with industry mentors, will help to prepare you for engineering practice. You will commence your study with a unit that introduces you to Australian Engineering Practice and three project-based learning units that will provide you with the opportunity to apply discipline knowledge and skills in an authentic project, in some cases with an industry mentor.

You will then select 24 credit points of units from topics including sustainability, mining, project management and rail. If you have no previous industry experience, as part of your elective study, you will undertake an internship in order to improve your understanding of engineering practice and obtain the 480 hours of approved engineering work experience required by Engineers Australia to be recognised as a professional engineer. Finally, you will complete a major research project through the units Engineering Research Project Planning and Engineering Research Project Implementation that will demonstrate your ability to work as a professional engineer.

For Australian students, this course is available in mixed mode, giving you the flexibility to study even if working or living in a remote location.

Choice of Major

The purpose of this degree is to enable students to develop further skills and knowledge in their current Engineering discipline. There are strict pre-requisite requirements for each unit. Students may only be able to meet the pre-requisites for units in a major that is their current discipline.

Any students wishing to change to a different Engineering discipline should contact the Course Advice Team to discuss options: 13 CQUni (13 27 86) http://handbook.cqu.edu.au/eforms/index (‘Ask a Course Advisor’ e-form).

Work Experience/Internship

Students in this course are required to demonstrate completion of a minimum of 240 hours of Engineering work experience in engineering organisations, in order to meet accreditation requirements. There are a number of options whereby students can complete this requirement.

Option 1: Provide documentary evidence of previous completion of 240 hours of work experience or a comparable undergraduate internship. Evidence should include (as appropriate):

· Letters from Employers on official letterhead detailing duration of employment or work experience, hours of work completed, and duties performed

· JP Certified transcripts from previous study showing satisfactory completion of an internship, along with official unit/subject outlines detailing the learning outcomes, schedule, duration and hours completed in the internship.

For further information about this option, please contact: Head of Courses – Postgraduate Engineering Studies (SETAdmin@cqu.edu.au).

Option 2: Complete the unit ENEP20001 Internship Work Experience in Terms 1, 2 or 3 as one of the elective options in this course. A 12 week internship will be completed. This internship may be organised by CQUniversity using external Internship providers.

Students will have the option to do a full-time internship in Term 3 only (4 to 5 days per week for 12 weeks) OR

Students can choose to do a part-time internship in Terms 1, 2 & 3 (20 hours per week for 12 weeks).

All internship placements are unpaid. Students who choose to undertake a full-time internship must complete ENEP20001 as a standalone unit. Students who choose to undertake a part-time internship may study additional units in the same term.

Further information on this option can be found on the School of Engineering and Technology Internship Moodle website: https://moodle.cqu.edu.au/course/view.php?id=3912 .


Credit for Prior Learning

Credit cannot be granted towards ENEP20001 Internship Work Experience unless an equivalent Engineering Work Experience unit has been completed as part of an accredited higher education post graduate Engineering Degree.

Applicants with AQF 8 - AQF 9 level Honours or Postgraduate qualifications or study completed in a cognate discipline may be eligible for advanced standing.

Note: Cognate discipline is sequence of study in Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Civil Engineering or Electrical Engineering.

Please refer to the Credit For Prior Learning website at http://www.cqu.edu.au/credittransfer for further details on the guidelines and application process or contact the Academic Pathways Team at credit@cqu.edu.au
