Applicants normally must hold with an average grade of credit or higher:
- the Flinders University Graduate Diploma in Engineering Science; Major in Mechanical Engineering, or
- equivalent progress in the Master of Engineering Science (Mechanical), or
- a relevant Bachelor degree or equivalent qualification in Mechanical Engineering; or
- an equivalent overseas qualification.
In addition, applicants must demonstrate successful completion of higher education topics in mathematics (equivalent to second year university mathematics including Fourier and Laplace Transforms), Strength of Materials and Dynamics.
Students without such a qualification should apply for the Graduate Diploma in Engineering Science and follow the Major in Mechanical Engineering.
The Dean (Education) may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
Students who have completed a relevant Washington Accord accredited Bachelor of Engineering with honours or have passed the same topics in a Flinders University Master of Engineering Science may receive up to 36 units of credit towards the Master of Engineering degree.
