The Master of Engineering (Civil) is a 72-unit program offered by the College of Science and Engineering.
Applicants normally must hold with an average grade of credit or higher:
Students without such a qualification should apply for the Graduate Diploma in Engineering Science.
The Dean (Education) may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
Students who have completed a relevant Washington Accord accredited Bachelor of Engineering with honours or have passed the same topics in a Flinders University Master of Engineering Science may receive up to 36 units of credit towards the Master of Engineering degree.
The course has been designed to provide graduates with:
The course provides the foundations that will underpin ongoing professional development, preparing graduates for further study or for a career in an engineering related field or in other areas where the range of skills and knowledge acquired is needed or desirable.
At the completion of the course, students are expected to be able to:
