Master of Professional Engineering

One of my main reasons for choosing to study at Swinburne University of Technology was the emphasis that the university places on practical learning in all its courses. As I am studying an engineering degree, it was crucial that I undergo skills-based training at university before joining the workforce. The Master of Professional Engineering was, hence, the perfect option for me as it not only includes professional development opportunities - like mock job interviews and employer networking sessions - but it also allows a select number of students to participate in an industry project and gain meaningful professional experience.
