About this course

Engineering offers an exciting future with an increasing demand for graduates both in Australia and internationally. Study the Master of Infrastructure Engineering and Management and you'll gain the skills to tackle significant infrastructure projects on regional and metropolitan profiles.

Your learning will focus on practical and real-world problems that blend project-based and workplace learning with access to world-class facilities and equipment at your fingertips.

This one-year coursework program extends your knowledge in infrastructure engineering through a unique blend of engineering and architecture units. Upon graduation, you will be equipped with knowledge and skills to plan and engineer significant infrastructure projects through the consideration of technological, economic and social impacts in both regional and metropolitan profiles.

Want to develop innovative solutions to large-scale infrastructure challenges?

You will develop unique strengths to work collaboratively in professional teams in order to develop evidence-based engineering solutions. Throughout the degree you will acquire critical-thinking, innovative problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills that employers are looking for in order to recognise the unique challenges faced in urban, regional and rural settings and devising longer-term engineering solutions, while considering how people use infrastructure and essential services at the present time.

You will have world-class facilities and equipment at your fingertips with access to Deakin's state-of-the-art engineering precinct and the Geelong Future Economy Precinct (GFEP) - home to the Institute for Frontier Materials (IFM), Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation (IISRI), Renewable Energy Microgrid, CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering and the Australian Future Fibre Research and Innovation Centre (AFFRIC).

The combined skillsets in engineering and management will provide graduates with a variety of industry opportunities related to infrastructure systems design, operation, management, and maintenance operations. Such works are undertaken both at federal, state and local government agencies as well as global infrastructure engineering and management consulting groups.

Example career opportunities include:

  • Infrastructure design (including road, rail and roadside)
  • Infrastructure construction and operation including maintenance
  • Quantity and cost estimation in construction and management
  • Management of the removal of railway crossings
  • Design and management of tunnelling and excavation work/s.

Entry requirements

  • 4-year bachelor degree or equivalent (AQF Level 8) in a relevant (related) engineering discipline.

Deakin University offers admission to postgraduate courses through a number of Admission categories.
