The professional Master of Engineering programs at the Melbourne School of Engineering (MSE) are the first in Australia to be granted the EUR-ACE® label at the masters level. The German accreditation agency ASIIN completed its assessment of these courses in June and have awarded the EUR-ACE® level 2 (masters level) accreditation.
As a consequence, MSE Master of Engineering graduates are now able to work as professional engineers throughout continental Europe. This is in addition to the Washington Accord countries Australia, UK, New Zealand, USA, Canada, Hong Kong, Ireland, Japan, South Africa, Malaysia, Turkey, Taiwan and Singapore.
The Dean of Engineering, Professor Iven Mareels, is delighted to announce that the Master of Engineering is now recognised around the globe, as few others are in the world, and none other in Australia.
“The Melbourne School of Engineering welcomes the EUR-ACE® level 2 accreditation, as it is further confirmation that our ME courses are high-quality programs that meet the international standard for professional engineering education at the masters level,” Professor Mareels says.
“For our graduates, it will mean that their skills meet the most rigorous European and international benchmarks, and that their qualifications are recognised by top employers in Europe’s leading economies. The EUR-ACE® label offers our graduates a competitive edge when applying for work in Europe.”
“Engineering courses at the University of Melbourne offer you the freedom to work as an accredited professional, wherever your travels may take you,” Professor Mareels says.
