    If you want to become a Professional Engineer, and have a 3 year engineering degree but no work experience, the Master of Engineering Science (Civil Engineering) will get you there.

    Throughout the degree there is an emphasis on practical experience and preparing you thoroughly for the engineering profession. In addition to the hands-on laboratory sessions and 60 days industry experience, you will complete a research project and dissertation applying all your formal knowledge to a real world problem. Whether this is the risks posed by natural disasters to structures or testing new construction materials, your project will provide insight to the profession of a Civil Engineer.

    The research project and dissertation can also be a stepping stone to further research degrees, such as PhD.

    Australia requirements for international students

    In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).

    Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test. 

    You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
