Program structure

The Master of Engineering Practice program is a 12-unit program made up of the following three components:

Schedule A: Five core courses (seven units)


ENG8300 Self-assessment Portfolio

The course ENG8300 Self-Assessment Portfolio is the first course students undertake in the program and it is designed to enable students to assess their existing attributes and capabilities and nominate the specific workplace experiences they will use to demonstrate their level of competency in the courses: ENG8311 Workplace Portfolio and ENG8308 Industry Project. Students will also nominate the Academic courses they will undertake in the program to enable them to satisfy the remaining attribute and capability requirements in the program objectives. It may also be necessary for them to identify some specific types of industrial experience they need to undertake to be able to satisfy any remaining requirements. The outcome of this self-assessment process will be a Pathway to Graduation Plan prepared by the student in consultation with the examiner of the course.

A second component of this course will require students to show that they can write a Career Episode Report that demonstrates their achievement of two of the specified attributes and capabilities. To do this successfully students will have to demonstrate they are able to accurately reflect on their experience and that they have the communication skills that are necessary to write such a report. The information in a Career Episode Report must be verified and endorsed by a professional engineer who is preferably a member of Engineers Australia. Achievement of this component of the course is critical because students will use Career Episode Reports to demonstrate Engineers Australia's Stage 2 and discipline specific competencies in the Workplace Portfolio and Industry Project courses.

At the end of this course students will submit a portfolio containing their Curriculum Vitae, the Career Episode Reports and the Pathway to Graduation Plan. The Examiner of the course will assess the portfolio and either:

  1. Approve the Pathway to Graduation Plan

  2. Request modifications to the Plan before it is approved, or

  3. Decide that the student does not have the required knowledge, experience, attributes or capabilities to be able to satisfactorily complete the program. In this case the student will be cancelled from this program and counselled on alternative ways of achieving their goals. Students in this category may still be awarded a passing grade in the course. If a student has passed this course, they will then be granted an exemption when they enrol in another program in the area of Engineering and Built Environment.


Once a Pathway to Graduation Plan has been approved a student may enrol in the remaining courses in the Plan. The Plan will, in due course, be used by the Faculty to assess the student's eligibility to graduate.

Prospective students should visit the Engineers Australia web site to gain an understanding of the processes which will be followed. In particular, they should view the Stage Two Competencies and the guidelines for achieving Chartered status.

The Workplace Portfolio and Industry Project courses

The Workplace Portfolio course and the Industry Project course are designed to enable students to develop Portfolios that will enable them to obtain credit for their achievements during their employment as an Engineering Technologist. The courses are:


The core course ENM1600 Engineering Mathematics is designed to give students the enabling skills in mathematics and problem solving needed to undertake the Technical courses in their program.

Schedule B: Five technical courses

During the preparation of their Pathway to Graduation Plan students must nominate how they are going to demonstrate achievement of the objectives of each of the Technical Courses defined for their specialisation and listed in this Schedule. They may do this by studying a course or by demonstrating achievement of the objectives of the course in their Workplace Portfolio. A student may study a maximum of five of the Technical Courses listed in this Schedule and the remaining Schedule B courses are addressed through the ENG8311 Workplace Portfolio.

Schedule C: One Practice Course

Students must complete the practice course allocated in the recommended enrolment pattern for their specialisation (0 units).

Residential schools

The attendance requirement of residential schools within this degree is indicated by the following letters: V = Voluntary; O = Optional; C = Compulsory; R = Recommended; HR = Highly Recommended; M = Mandatory. Find out more about residential schools, visit the Residential School Schedule to view specific dates for your degree, or visit the Policy and Procedure Library.

Students are required to undertake practical and professional activities relevant to their program through enrolment in a Practice course in the program. Practice courses are zero unit courses that may be undertaken in either on-campus or external mode and the final grades available are Pass (P)/Fail (F) only. They are a compulsory part of the program and do not attract a student contribution charge for Australian residents or a tuition fee for international students. The recommended enrolment schedule for the relevant Practice course is shown in the Recommended Enrolment Pattern for the program in this Handbook.

Students who enrol in on-campus mode for Practice courses normally undertake a series of mandatory weekly activities and/or attend a mandatory residential school.

External students must attend a single mandatory residential school during their program to obtain experience in practical and professional activities appropriate to the program. The mandatory residential school is included in the Practice course which is conducted in Semester 3 or during the recess period in Semester 2. The dates for each mandatory residential school Practice course are shown in the Residential School schedule in this Handbook and external students should ensure they are able to attend the mandatory residential school prior to enrolling in a Practice course. Personal protective equipment is compulsory in many engineering, construction and spatial science laboratories, students should confirm the requirements before attending residential schools for Practice courses.
