If you are a graduate with a previous degree in Mechanical Engineering (or a related field) and are looking to upgrade and extend your knowledge and skills in this high demand area, the Mechanical Engineering postgraduate program at Flinders provides you with the perfect study plan.
Ranging from the Graduate Diploma, and Master of Engineering Science to this Master of Engineering, these courses offer a unique selection of advanced topics in various branches of Mechanical Engineering such as Solid Mechanics, Fluid Mechanics, Design and Manufacturing, Materials, and Control. The courses also integrate with the strong research and development programs in the College of Science and Engineering.
With the demand for professional mechanical engineers with an advanced level of expertise and knowledge, these courses equip students with the latest theoretical and practical aspects of Mechanical Engineering to address high-level industry requirements such as research and development, advanced design and analysis of complex mechanical systems.
IELTS: 6 TOEFL: 72
The Master of Engineering (Mechanical) provides both core and optional advanced topics such as Solid Mechanics, Control Systems, Applied Thermo-Fluid Dynamics, Mechanics of Machines, Renewable Energy, Advanced Mechanical Design, Finite Element Methods, Fatigue and Fracture, Materials Selection, Project Management & Innovation and Standards and Ethics.
This course provides a variety of significant project work. Examples include: Mechanical Design Project (through the national Warman Design & Build Competition), and the Master’s Thesis Project that may tackle an industry-relevant problem or a research question. It also includes a project-based topic “Advanced Mechanical Design” together with a 12-week industry placement.
Applicants must normally hold a bachelor degree or equivalent qualification in mechanical engineering or closely related field; or hold the Graduate Diploma in Engineering Science (Mechanical stream) from Flinders University or have completed a minimum of 1 year full-time equivalent in the Master of Engineering Science (Mechanical) from Flinders University or equivalent qualification.
A knowledge of mathematics (equivalent to second year university mathematics including Fourier and Laplace Transforms) and a knowledge of Materials and Dynamics is assumed.
Applicants without such a qualification should apply for the Master of Engineering Science (Mechanical) (2CM240).
International students must satisfy our English language proficiency requirements for admission. If your first language is not English you will need to have:
Annual indicative fees: $39,500
