Program objectives

On completion of this program graduates should be able to:

  • demonstrate and interpret an integrated understanding of a complex body of knowledge in one or more disciplines or areas of practice: and

  • apply specialised cognitive and technical skills in an advanced body of knowledge or practice in one or more disciplines or areas of practice; and

  • critically analyse and reflect upon sources of information to interpret and transmit knowledge, skills and ideas to specialist and non-specialist audiences.


Program Rules

Students are required to:

  • Satisfactorily complete 8 credit points as listed in the standard progression to graduate from the program.

  • Satisfactorily complete all courses within 4 years.

  • Maintain satisfactory academic achievement throughout the duration of the program, consistent with the UniSQ Student Academic Progress Procedure.

  • Meet all mandatory course requirements including attendance of mandatory residential school requirements where this is present in courses.

  • Mandatory compliance to program needs for the graduate engineering ePortfolio associated with the program.

  • Immunisations and vaccinations according to national standards requirements for on-campus mode studies.

  • Meet the Inherent Requirements for the Graduate Diploma of Professional Engineering.

Australian Qualifications Framework

The Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) is a single national, comprehensive system of qualifications offered by higher education institutions (including universities), vocational education and training institutions and secondary schools. Each AQF qualification has a set of descriptors which define the type and complexity of knowledge, skills and application of knowledge and skills that a graduate who has been awarded that qualification has attained, and the typical volume of learning associated with that qualification type.

This program is at AQF Qualification Level 08. Graduates at this level will have advanced knowledge and skills for professional or highly skilled work and/or further learning.

The full set of levels criteria and qualification type descriptors can be found by visiting www.aqf.edu.au.

Admission requirements

To be eligible for admission, applicants must satisfy the following requirements:

  • Completion of an Australian university three or four-year Bachelor degree in the area of engineering in the relevant cognate specialisation (major), or equivalent.

    Or

    Completion of an appropriate four-year embedded honours Bachelor degree in the area of engineering in a non-cognate specialisation (major field), or equivalent.

  • English Language Proficiency requirements for Category 3.


The standing of degrees awarded by an overseas institution will be determined by reference to the Sydney Accord, of which Engineers Australia (EA) is a signatory, and the federal government agency, International Education group, an agency of the Department of Education and Training.

All students are required to satisfy the applicable English language requirements.

If students do not meet the English language requirements they may apply to study a University-approved English language program. On successful completion of the English language program, students may be admitted to an award program.

Program fees

Commonwealth supported place

A Commonwealth supported place is where the Australian Government makes a contribution towards the cost of a students' higher education and students pay a student contribution amount, which varies depending on the courses undertaken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Schedules.

Commonwealth Supported students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called HECS-HELP.

Domestic full fee paying place

Domestic full fee paying places are funded entirely through the full fees paid by the student. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Schedule

Domestic full fee paying students may be eligible to defer their fees through a Government loan called FEE-HELP provided they meet the residency and citizenship requirements.

Australian citizens, Permanent Humanitarian Visa holders, Permanent Resident visa holders and New Zealand citizens who will be resident outside Australia for the duration of their program pay full tuition fees and are not eligible for FEE-Help.

International full fee paying place

International students pay full fees. Full fees vary depending on the courses that are taken and whether they are studied on-campus, external or online. Students are able to calculate the fees for a particular course via the Course Fee Schedules.

Program structure

The Graduate Diploma of Professional Engineering comprises eight single unit academic courses as follows:

Schedule A: Four Core courses (four units)

Schedule B: Four Specialisation courses (four units)

Specialisation

The specialisation study provides students with knowledge and skills in a specific discipline. The specialisation study areas in the Graduate Diploma of Professional Engineering are:

  • Aerospace Engineering

  • Agricultural Engineering

  • Civil Engineering

  • Electrical and Electronic Engineering

  • Engineering Management and Enterprise

  • Environmental Engineering

  • Mechanical Engineering

  • Power Engineering

  • Structural Engineering

Articulation

The Graduate Certificate of Professional Engineering, the Graduate Diploma of Professional Engineering, and the Master of Professional Engineering are a nested suite of programs. Students who have completed the Graduate Diploma of Professional Engineering from prior engineering degree awards are able to apply to articulate with 6-8 credits (depends on selectives taken) to the Master of Professional Engineering.

Students who have completed the Graduate Diploma of Professional Engineering from prior science degree awards are able to apply to articulate with partial credit to the Master of Professional Engineering. Credit / Exemptions applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Applicants with similar discipline specialisations from science degrees to those offered can use this program to complete necessary requisite engineering knowledge to then articulate into the Master of Professional Engineering. This transitional studies are for scientist graduates either working in engineering field already or planning a career extension into an engineering field of practice. For further information on this program option, please contact the School of Engineering Post-graduate Program Director via usq.support@usq.edu.au, and provide with the contact the science degree testamur and academic transcript.

Back to top

Exit points

Students who have completed four courses in the program may satisfy the requirements for the Graduate Certificate of Professional Engineering and therefore may apply to exit the program with a Graduate Certificate of Professional Engineering.

Back to top

Credit

Exemptions/credit will be assessed based on the UniSQ Credit and Exemption Procedure.

Back to top

Enrolment

Students should note that some of the courses specify enrolment requirements (prerequisites). Students should therefore refer to the Course Specification section to determine the enrolment requirements for the courses they intend enrolling in. Students should avoid enrolling in courses for which they do not have sufficient pre-requisite knowledge. Students will be expected to rectify any deficiencies in their pre-requisite knowledge by private study, guided if necessary by the examiners of the relevant courses. Students should contact the School of Engineering Program Director (Post-Graduate) via usq.support@usq.edu.au if they encounter problems while enrolling in courses with requisites.
