The Accreditation Board of Engineers Australia has confirmed that full accreditation has now been awarded to the three Master of Engineering specialisations, as follows:
- Master of Engineering (Chemical with Business)
- Master of Engineering (Civil with Business)
- Master of Engineering (Mechanical with Business).
The remaining programs will continue to be provisionally accredited by Engineers Australia, until sufficient students have graduated. These programs are:
- Master of Engineering (Biomedical with Business)
- Master of Engineering (Electrical with Business)
- Master of Engineering (Software with Business).
The Melbourne School of Engineering will apply to have these programs fully accredited, as soon as enough students have graduated from them. No student will be disadvantaged during this process. Once these degrees are fully recognised, the recognition will be back-dated to include all graduates from the start of the program.
In addition to Engineers Australia accreditation, the Melbourne School of Engineering will apply for EUR-ACE® accreditation, for the Master of Engineering (with business) suite of programs in 2016.
There has been no change to the accreditation status of the Master of Engineering, currently offered in 11 technical streams, and fully accredited by Engineers Australia and EUR-ACE®, with the exception of the Master of Engineering (Spatial), which is also provisionally accredited until sufficient students graduate from the program.
