ATAR Clearly-In Rank

Clearly-in Rank

The Clearly-in Rank is the lowest score at which students were granted entry in the first offer round in 2015.

The Clearly-in rank should be used as a guide for entry. Note: entry to some courses requires a combination of criteria (ie. folio, interview, GMAT) not just ATAR alone.

The Master of Engineering (Technology Management) and Master of Engineering (Naval Engineering) degree programs are designed to provide engineering graduates with in-depth exposure to a wide range of subjects relevant to the development and procurement of maritime engineering systems.

The course has been specifically designed to provide a flexible learning approach through interactive online study. In addition, some units are also available for on-campus study.

Individual units will also be available to professionals who may not wish to enrol in the program but who may wish to develop expertise in a particular area for professional development purposes.

Our postgraduate maritime engineering programmes provide engineering graduates with in-depth exposure to a wide range of subjects relevant to the development and procurement of marine systems.

The Maritime Design programme is constructed for engineering graduates not yet in the work force wanting to raise their knowledge in advanced engineering practice and research.  It is also available to current Engineers who wish to gain knowledge in the Maritime sector.

All programmes lead on to greater employment and higher degree study opportunities through industry relevant research projects.  International students looking to gain work experience in Australia post-study, are encouraged to apply for this programme.

Career outcomes

The Master of Engineering degree is targeted at engineering professionals already in the workforce, who wish to pursue, or develop a career in the technical management of maritime engineering projects.
