I'm majoring in Chemical engineering.
Positives: The Lecturers generally teach in an excellent way: it's easy to be successful in the courses as every week you are forced to do assignments, reports, etc. Therefore, you are learning and gaining knowledge through every step of the semester. Furthermore, it´s not easy to be accepted in this master (you must have a bachelor in engineering, and focused on a field related to yours), so the classes standard is so high: debates and discussions are held all the time.
Negatives: It's difficult to find a job: Courses timetable are so complicated! you will have classes during the morning, afternoon and evening, so it's not easy to find an employer that can accept this matter. Another issue with courses is that they are not available on both semesters, so you have to struggle a bit planning all the courses you will be enrolled during the two year's Master.
My advice to future students is: Enjoy this Master! It can give you a lot of opportunities in the future. The employability is HUGE, specially if you are graduated from UQ. Saint Lucia campus is gorgeous, with a great amount of facilities and activities for students. Be up to date with all your courses, attend all lectures, even if they are recorded and available online. It´s nice to be part of lectures´ discussions.
