    Master of Professional Engineering (Civil Engineering)

    About

    • Ideal if you hold a 3 year engineering degree but have no work experience.
    • With a focus on practical experience you will have the opportunity to undertake hands-on laboratory sessions and 60 days of industry experience. You will also complete a research project and dissertation applying all your formal knowledge to a real world problem.
