+MA2009 and MA5005 are mutually exclusive courses. 
This specialisation will enable graduates to apply for registration as Professional Engineers, if other requirements (4 years of relevant practical experience in engineering, FEE & PPEE examinations, interview) are also fulfilled. Please see the following extract:

The Professional Engineers Board registers professional engineers in the branches of civil, electrical mechanical and chemical engineering. A person applying for registration as a professional engineer to the Professional Engineers Board is required to hold an approved degree or qualification listed in the  Professional Engineers (Approved Qualifications) Notification / Amendment Notification 2016 and acquired relevant practical experience.  The applicant is required to sit and pass the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination and the Practice of Professional Engineering Examination or the oral examination (for a person previously registered as a professional engineer or is an experienced applicant). In addition, the applicant is required to attend a professional interview.

Further details on Professional Engineer registration from PEB can be found here.
