Master Degrees (Research) prepare students to apply advanced knowledge for research, scholarship and further learning corresponding to AQF level 9 qualifications.This research course aims to develop, through the conduct of a supervised research project, the ability of a suitably qualified candidate to contribute to the knowledge and practice of engineering. At the completion of the assigned project, the candidate submits a written thesis presenting the results of the work and discussing the significance of them for the pertinent field of engineering.


Detailed information about the course structure is available through official Curtin pages:


  • The topic for the research project is assigned to the candidate after consultation with the Head of Department. Students are admitted subject to successful completion of a qualifying program. Students enrol in one or both of the Master Qualifying Program units and undertake a specified program of study. On successful completion, students qualify to proceed with the formal master program. Failure to attain a satisfactory standard in the qualifying units renders a student ineligible for re-enrolment in the master course.

Standard entry requirements

Specifically, applicants require a recognised bachelor of engineering degree at honours level. Other applications will be considered from other well-qualified graduates able to present acceptable evidence of an ability to undertake research projects. In such cases, admission may be subject to successful completion of a prescribed qualifying program.

Study pathways

Applications for Credit for Recognised Learning are assessed on an individual basis.
