Course code: 3265 ~ Course abbreviation: MElec&CompSysEng ~ Total credit points required: 48 ~ 1 year full-time, 2 years part-time ~ Managing faculty: Engineering
Study mode and course location
The program is intended to appeal both to recent graduates who wish to enhance their first qualification with studies in the area of electrical and computer systems engineering to improve their prospects in this area of sustained employment growth, and to mature students who wish to select units that suit their personal and professional needs as they develop from time to time and in so doing to accumulate credit towards the program over a period of some years.
Articulation and credit
Credit is available to candidates who transfer from the postgraduate diploma to the masters without graduating at diploma level. Articulation is subject to approval upon satisfactory academic performance.
Graduates will be able to update and extend their knowledge in response to rapid changes in Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering and develop a broad understanding of inter-related topics and appreciate synergies between subject areas; communicate technical arguments effectively; plan, develop, run and manage projects; evaluate alternative projects and policies in a rigorous manner; and develop independent research and evaluation skills.
This program course normally consists of:
a.) 48 points of coursework units only, however with the approval of the course director, students may undertake either:
b.) 36 points of coursework units and a 12 point Electrical and computer systems engineering project, or
c.) 24 points of coursework units and a 24 point Electrical and computer systems engineering thesis which will be assessed by two internal examiners (this option is intended for candidates intending to proceed to doctoral studies).
In the case of those taking options a.) or b.) up to 12 points may be drawn from any postgraduate program of the university, with prior approval of the course director.
Students select units from the following to make up the total of 48 points (for all options):*
