What will I learn?
The Master of Philosophy is a research degree with a coursework component taken over four sessions full-time or equivalent. The research component will lead to a thesis which embodies the result of an original investigation, design or engineering development. A program of advanced study comprising 3 courses (18 Units of Credit) makes up the remainder of the program.

Mechanical Engineering is concerned with the design, development, construction, operation and maintenance of machines, plants and factories.
The purpose of many machines is to produce, to transmit and to use power. A motor vehicle, having an engine, a drive-line and a suspension system is a typical example. Robots, aircraft engines, household appliances and equipment for agriculture, construction and mining are examples of other machines.
Much of the equipment installed in large buildings and factories is essentially mechanical. Examples include building lifts and air conditioning plants. Steam generators and turbines are major mechanical elements in power stations which generate electricity.
Mechanical Engineering is the most diverse of the engineering disciplines in terms of both the industries it serves and the activities which it involves.
The activities of Mechanical Engineers are essential to society and there is often great satisfaction in undertaking this vital work. Further, because of the fundamental importance of these activities, there is stable employment in associated industries. The power generation industry is an example. However, because of the diversity of activities and skills associated with Mechanical Engineering, there is also a wide range of exciting employment opportunities for both men and women in Australia and overseas.
