  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
  • English (book IELTS)
University rank #247 (QS) ,
This program develops advanced knowledge and skills in aerospace engineering and prepares you to become a leader, consultant or manager in the aerospace and aviation industries.


You'll learn how to analyse complex engineering assets in the aerospace and aviation environment, and develop engineering, scientific and technological solutions to ensure problem-free operations.

As the aerospace industry is associated with cutting edge technology, you'll learn how to find innovative solutions for challenging problems and opportunities from an array of possibilities. These skills will be gained through systematic problem-solving and engineering/technological systems design methodologies operating in the industry.

Industry connections

You will undertake activities and interact with industry and communities in real-work contexts or situations. Any or all of these aspects of a WIL experience may be simulated.

Work-integrated learning has been incorporated into the final year Master's Research Project where you will work on a capstone project. These projects are either directly connected with industry or simulate the situation of a graduate in industry reporting to a supervisor with whom they meet regularly. In cases where the project is directly connected with industry, the industry partner is usually involved in the assessment.

As part of the Masters you must complete at least 12 weeks of work experience in a professional engineering environment. Work experience completed prior to joining this program and after commencing a relevant bachelor degree (see Entry Requirements) will count towards the work experience component.


Professional recognition and accreditation
This program does not yet have accreditation by Engineers Australia. Accreditation will be sought for this program as soon as it is feasible to do so within the accreditation time lines set by Engineers Australia. Australia is one of 15 countries that are signatories to the International Engineering Alliance, also known as the Washington Accord, for professional engineers.

Programme Structure

The program aims to provide you with skills to step up as a project leader, consultant or manager with advanced knowledge to lead the introduction of new technologies and operating practices in aerospace and aviation organisations.

Core subject areas include structures and materials, aerodynamics and performance, propulsion, avionics and ATM systems, flight dynamics and control and aircraft design. The program is complemented by a range of elective courses relevant to the aviation industry to tailor your study plan according to your professional interests.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:


    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

  • Minimum required score (Grade B):


    The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

    Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

  • Minimum required score:


    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:


    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
