  • Objectives
    The primary aims of this course are to provide significant and substantial advanced knowledge of and skill in the field of Smart Instrumentation Engineering including in-depth knowledge of and skills in a specific area or application of Smart Instrumentation, obtained through a combination of coursework and project.Learning outcomesThe expected learning outcomes for the degree include: * an advanced level of knowledge of the Engineering principles underlying the application of Smart Instrumentation; * expertise in a range of technical skills used in the application of Smart Instrumentation Engineering; * well developed skills in written and oral communication, problem solving and critical thinking; and, * the knowledge and skills to undertake research and development; involving the selection of appropriate methodology, the analysis and review of research literature and the completion of an advanced development or similar research-oriented project.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants normally must hold an approved undergraduate Engineering degree with appropriate electronic content, or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution. An applicant who has not previously studied electronics may be required to undertake appropriate bridging studies.The Faculty Board may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.Students who complete the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) and are subsequently admitted to the Masters degree will be awarded 18 units of credit. Students who complete the Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) and are subsequently admitted to the Masters degree will be awarded 36 units of credit.Students with relevant professional work experience in a Smart Instrumentation Engineering related profession (including substantial and high level involvement in research or technical aspects relevant to Smart Instrumentation Engineering) may be granted credit up to a maximum of 18 units (i.e. credit towards the Graduate Certificate component of the award).Students who have completed an Australian University Engineering (four year or longer) degree in Computer and Electronic Engineering, or Robotic Engineering with honours may be granted credit up to a maximum of 36 units.
  • Academic Title
    Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation)
  • Course description
     The Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) is a 72-unit program offered by the School of Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics, within the Faculty of Science and Engineering on a Commonwealth Supported basis.

    "Smart Instrumentation" refers to the increasing range of devices that display some form of "intelligence" whether by being self-monitoring (instrumentation), providing self-initiated responses and self-moderating behaviour (control) or having (wireless) mobility. This includes devices such as a mobile phone through to robotics through to "intelligent" structures that self-monitor and self-control temperature, vibrations etc.

    The course articulates with the Graduate Certificate in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation) and the Graduate Diploma in Engineering (Smart Instrumentation), and the sequentially developed topics allow progression through the three awards.

    PROGRAM OF STUDY  [November, 2008]

    To qualify for the Master of Engineering (Smart Instrumentation), a student must complete 72 units with a grade of P or NGP or better in each topic, according to the program of study below.
