Course: Master of Professional Engineering (Electrical) (2014)
CP Required: 144
Min FT Duration: 3.00 Years
Min PT Duration: N/A
Faculty/School: Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies
Years Offered: 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010
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 the progression requirements as specified in the University's Coursework Rule, and required to have a WAM >= 65% based on the results of all units of study once a minimum of 48 credit points have been first attempted. Candidates who do not meet this WAM requirement will have their enrolment transferred to the Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Professional Engineering).

Transitional provisions

These resolutions apply to students who commenced their candidature after 1 January 2013 and students who commenced their candidature prior to 1 January 2013 who elect to proceed under these resolutions.

Candidates who commenced prior to 1 January 2013 may complete the requirements in accordance with the resolutions in force at the time of their commencement.
