Join the next generation of engineers.
The telecommunications industry has been transformed by disruptive technologies and employers are searching for engineers with the skills to transform their businesses.
Tap into this growing demand by combining studies in network engineering with skills in design and development of new systems. La Trobe's Master of Telecommunications and Network Engineering will give you a solid foundation in hardware and software development, computer networks, signal processing and wireless systems. You will use software currently used in industry and the latest signal generators, PCs, development boards, digital storage oscilloscopes and spectrum analysers, with on-campus access to the Centre for Technology Infusion.
Our six-month Work Integrated Learning (WIL) program gives you 800 hours of real-world experience working in an engineering company or related-industry employer of electrical engineers, including partners like Telstra, Siemens, the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and Fortis.
Alternatively, you could join a research team on an advanced engineering project. You'll build industry connections and see how engineering is practised first-hand. A A$10 000 scholarship is also available for eligible students to support your study.
Developed in consultation with industry leaders, this specialised course is designed to prepare you for the challenges of our future workforce.
One year of advanced standing may be available to engineering graduates with a four-year Bachelor's degree with Honours from another Australian university.
The qualification awarded on graduation is recognised in the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) as Level 9 - Masters Degree.
