    Master of Engineering


    The Master of Engineering allows you the opportunity to develop professional skills such as teamwork and communication while applying and further developing the theoretical knowledge you gained in your undergraduate study. If you are a practicing engineer, this is a versatile course that allows you to extend or expand your engineering practice.  

    This course begins with an introduction to Australian engineering practice, providing the opportunity to apply discipline knowledge and skills in an authentic project, in some cases with an industry mentor, and will help to prepare you for engineering practice. You will then complete an internship of a minimum of 300 hours to gain work experience required to meet the accreditation requirements of the course. If you have significant and recent engineering experience (at least 480 hours) you may opt out of this unit and choose an elective unit as an alternative. 

    Depending on your choice of elective units, you will study one or two units from topics including sustainability, mining, project management and rail providing the opportunity to contextualise your learning to your current or preferred industry. Finally, you will complete a major research project that will demonstrate your ability to work as a professional engineer.

    CQU’s postgraduate construction management courses will provide you with advanced disciplinary knowledge and skills in current construction management practices and project management concepts to enhance your current career or move into a career in construction management.

    Our construction management courses will also equip you with advanced knowledge to embrace the principles of project management as they apply across different phases of the construction project cycle.


    Our postgraduate construction management courses are designed in consultation with industry and integrate practical learning experiences to enhance your studies. Plus, learn from industry professionals with backgrounds in building and construction.


    Entry Requirements

    To be eligible for entry into this course, applicants must hold:

    • A completed Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) three-year Bachelor of Engineering, or equivalent, with an aligned engineering major.

    Degrees completed without standard engineering majors (Civil, Electrical, or Mechanical) will be assessed for compatibility on a case-by-case basis by the Head of Course PG (Engineering).

    English Language Proficiency Requirements

    If you were not born in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa or United States of America, you are required to meet the English Language Proficiency requirements set by the University. Applicants are required to provide evidence of completion of:

    • A secondary qualification (Year 11 and 12, or equivalent), or
    • An Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) diploma level qualification, or
    • Bachelor level qualification study for a period of at least 2 years fulltime with a minimum overall GPA 4.0

    Completed within Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, South Africa, Ireland or the United States of America, which will meet the English proficiency.

    If you do not satisfy any of the above, you will need to undertake an English language proficiency test and achieve the following scores:

    • An International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic) overall band score of at least 6.0 with a minimum 5.5 in each subset; or
    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) - Requires 550 or better overall and minimum TWE score of 4.5 (Paper Based Test), or 75 or better overall and no score less than 17 (Internet Based Test); or
    • Pearson Test of English Academic (PTE Academic) - Requires an overall score of 54 with no sub-score less than 46; or
    • An Occupational English Test with Grades A or B only in each of the four components.

    English test results remain valid for no more than two years between the final examination date and the date of commencement of study, and must appear on a single result certificate.

    If you are an International student please visit International students English requirements for further information.

    Each student will be assessed individually.

    English Program Requirements

    If you don’t meet our English language entry requirements and need to improve your English language proficiency, you can do so through our approved English Language Instruction Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) providers. This means that you can attend the required English language tuition at approved ELICOS providers and gain direct entry into university without an IELTS or TOEFL test.


    Upon successful completion of the Master of Engineering, you will be recognised as a graduate professional engineer in Australia. As an engineer, you will realise career opportunities in a wide range of industries including energy, infrastructure, resources.

    Possessing a Masters qualification will enhance your employability and elevate you above your engineering peers.
