This paper provides a progress report on the development of a new engineering master program as one part of a 2010 Senior L&T fellowship. The development of the new program is inspired by other accredited professional programs from the accounting and law professions. The program has the dual aims of providing learning opportunities for aspiring engineering graduates in the form of personal, professional and educational development, and structured guidance and mentoring to pursue their Engineers Australia’s chartered status (Stage 2 Competencies) and potential Stage 3 status. A conceptual framework and a proposed learning journey have been developed and are described in the paper. The paper argues for a reformed curriculum, blended pedagogies, a change in academic staff profile, and provide recent developments in the engineering and management education sector in support. The engagement process and ongoing collaborative experience with Engineers Australia is also described.
