Requirements: To qualify for the award of the Master of Professional Engineering in this specialisation, a candidate must complete 144 credit points, including core and elective units of study as listed here.

Admission to candidature

Admission to candidature requires: EITHER (a) a Bachelor of Engineering from the University of Sydney, OR (b) equivalent qualification, with a minimum credit average; OR (c) a non-engineering bachelor's degree with a minimum credit average, with studies equivalent to 48 credit points in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, geology, computing or statistics, as related to the intended engineering specialisation.

All candidates for admission must have prior learning equivalent to 48 credit points in total, which, in the estimation of the Dean, is comparable to the requirements for the first year of a Bachelor of Engineering at this University in the stream sought for admission.

Credit for previous study

Candidates with a Bachelor of Engineering or equivalent in the relevant discipline, and who have reached an acceptable level of academic achievement in their prior degree, may be eligible for a reduction of volume in learning of up to 48 credit points.

A maximum of 72 credit points may be granted towards the Master of Professional Engineering from external postgraduate studies where no award has been, or will be made, provided the studies are acceptable to the Program Director Dean and are equivalent to units of study offered in the Master of Professional Engineering.

Candidates transferring from the Master of Engineering to the Master of Professional Engineering may transfer up to 24 credit points provided units are equivalent to units of study offered in the Master of Professional Engineering. Any additional credit is subject to the approval by the Dean.

Progression

Candidates are required to meet progression requirements as described in the University of Sydney "Students at Risk" policy.

Transitional provisions

These rules apply to students who commenced their candidature after 1 January 2015 and students who commenced their candidature prior to 1 January 2015 who elect to proceed under these resolutions.

Candidates who commenced prior to 1 January 2015 may complete the requirements in accordance with the resolutions in force at the time of their commencement.

Changes from 2015

Students continuing from 2014 and earlier should note changes of code and name for previous "Foundations" units. The unit code on these units has changed from "5xxx" format to "9xxx" and the prefix "Foundations of" has been dropped. The name and content of these units, otherwise remains as previous. Level 5xxx "Foundations" units that have already been completed will be credited towards the degree in place of the equivalent 9xxx unit.
