See also the rules for the course and the Student Rules.

Rules

Applicability of the Student Rules, policies and procedures

1.(1) The Student Rules apply to students in this course.

(2) The policy, policy statements and guidance documents and student procedures apply, except as otherwise indicated in the rules for this course.

Academic Conduct Essentials and Communication and Research Skills modules

2.(1) Except as stated in (2), a student who enrols in this course for the first time irrespective of whether they have previously been enrolled in another course of the University, must undertake the Academic Conduct Essentials module (the ACE module) and the Communication and Research Skills module (the CARS module).

(2) A student who has previously achieved a result of Ungraded Pass (UP) for the CARS module is not required to repeat the module.

(3) A student must successfully complete the ACE module within the first teaching period of their enrolment. Failure to complete the module within this timeframe will result in the student's unit results from this teaching period being withheld. These results will continue to be withheld until students avail themselves of a subsequent opportunity to achieve a passing grade in the ACE module. In the event that students complete units in subsequent teaching periods without completing the ACE module, these results will similarly be withheld. Students will not be permitted to submit late review or appeal applications regarding results which have been withheld for this reason and which they were unable to access in the normally permitted review period.

English Language competency requirements

3. To be considered eligible for consideration for admission to this course an applicant must satisfy the University's English language competence requirement as set out in the University Policy on Admission: Coursework.

Admission requirements

4. To be considered for admission to this course an applicant must have—

(a) a UWA bachelor's degree with a major in Engineering Science1 or Bachelor of Automation and Robotics; or

(b) a bachelor's degree, or an equivalent qualification, as recognised by UWA; and

(i) the equivalent of a UWA weighted average mark of at least 65 per cent; and

(ii) prior studies in engineering, physics or mathematics;

or

(c) completed units in the Master of Professional Engineering Preliminary course at UWA as prescribed by the Faculty;

or

(d) completed a UWA Diploma in Science with a major in Engineering Science1

1 Students are required to achieve a course weighted average mark of at least 50 per cent in their bachelor's degree or a weighted average mark of at least 50 per cent in the Level 3 units of the Engineering Science major.

Admission ranking and selection

5. Where relevant, admission will be awarded to the highest ranked applicants or applicants selected based on the relevant requirements.

Articulations and exit awards

6.(1) This course has the following exit awards:

  • 60260 Graduate Certificate in Engineering (24 points)
  • 60330 Graduate Diploma in Engineering (48 points)

(2) A student who withdraws from the Master of Professional Engineering course before completing it, but after completing course core units and/or specialisation-specific units to the value of 24 points, may apply to the School to be awarded the Graduate Certificate in Engineering.

(3) A student who withdraws from the Master of Professional Engineering course before completing it, but after completing course core units and/or specialisation-specific units to the value of 48 points, may apply to the School to be awarded the Graduate Diploma in Engineering.

Course structure

7.(1) The course consists of units to a total value of 144 points (maximum value) which includes conversion units to a value of 48 points, course core units and specialisation units. The course comprises the following specialisations :

  • SP-EBIOM Biomedical Engineering
  • SP-ECHEM Chemical Engineering
  • SP-ECIVI Civil Engineering
  • SP-EELEC Electrical and Electronic Engineering
  • SP-EENVI Environmental Engineering
  • SP-EMECH Mechanical Engineering
  • SP-EMINI Mining Engineering
  • SP-ESOFT Software Engineering

(2) Units must be selected in accordance with the course structure, as set out in these rules.

(3) Students who have completed a major in Engineering Science from this University, or equivalent as recognised by the Faculty are granted credit for conversion units up to a value of 48 points.

Satisfactory progress

8. To make satisfactory progress a student must pass units to a point value greater than half the total value of units in which they remain enrolled after the final date for withdrawal without academic penalty.

9. A student who has not achieved a result of Ungraded Pass (UP) for the Communication and Research Skills module (the CARS module) when their progress status is assessed will not have made satisfactory progress even if they have met the other requirements for satisfactory progress in Rule 8.

Progress status

10.(1) A student who makes satisfactory progress in terms of Rule 8 is assigned the status of 'Good Standing'.

(2) Unless the relevant board determines otherwise because of exceptional circumstances—

(a) a student who does not make satisfactory progress for the first time under Rule 8 is assigned a progress status of 'On Probation';

(b) a student who does not make satisfactory progress for the second time under Rule 8 is assigned a progress status of 'Suspended';

(c) a student who does not make satisfactory progress for the third time under Rule 8 is assigned a progress status of 'Excluded'.

11. A student who does not make satisfactory progress in terms of Rule 9 is assigned the progress status of 'On Probation', unless they have been assigned a progress status of 'Suspended' or 'Excluded' for failure to meet other satisfactory progress requirements in Rule 8.

Award with distinction

12. To be awarded the degree with distinction a student must achieve a course weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 80 per cent which is calculated based on—

(a) all units above Level 3 attempted as part of the course that are awarded a final percentage mark;

(b) all relevant units above Level 3 undertaken in articulating courses of this University that are awarded a final percentage mark;

and

(c) all units above Level 3 completed at this University that are credited to the master's degree course.

Deferrals

13. Applicants awarded admission to the course are entitled to a deferral of up to 12 months, as per the University Policy on: Admissions (Coursework).

Additional rules
Professional practicum

14.(1) Students are required to complete at least 450 hours of suitable practical experience as approved by the Faculty.

(2) With the support of the Faculty, students are expected to make their own arrangements for practical experience.

(3) The Faculty may, on written application by a student and on production of satisfactory evidence, accept work completed by the student prior to acceptance into the course as fulfilling the requirements of (1).

(4) Students must submit an online portfolio (GENG5010 Professional Engineering Portfolio2) at the end of their final semester of study in the Master of Professional Engineering. The portfolio must refer to the practicum work completed under (1) and/or (3) above and demonstrate the student's attainment of the sixteen elements of competency outlined in the Engineers Australia Stage 1 Competency Standard for Professional Engineer. Students may also refer to coursework activities in their portfolio. Certificates of Work Performed and other evidence must be included.

2 Students enrol in GENG5010 Professional Engineering Portfolio in their final semester of study. They may, however, contribute material to their portfolio at any time during their studies.

Substitution

15. Where a student has completed relevant studies in a course accredited by Engineers Australia, the Faculty may permit or require a student to substitute for specialisation specific units other units available within the course up to a value of 24 points, provided that no more than 48 points are completed at Level 4.

Admissions/enrolment-related rules
