Master of Engineering Science
Blended learning – on-campus and digital learning
Develop specialised technical knowledge in your engineering field or expand your expertise into a related engineering discipline. The Master of Engineering Science builds on your existing engineering studies and knowledge. The course will expand your professional skills and is designed to prepare you to complete independent research work.
Select a engineering specialisation from one of: Advanced Manufacturing, Civil, Electrical, Electronics and Telecommunications, Industry 4.0 and Systems, Mechanical, or Structural.Depending on your chosen specialisation, you’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge to pursue work as a professional engineer in a range of areas, including electrical power generation, safety and distribution, renewable energy systems, systems and embedded design, mechanical systems design, manufacturing systems design, telecommunication networks design, civil engineering project management, structural engineering and construction.
