1_ The Foundation Certificate in English for Academic Purposes (FCertEAP), or
2_ The English Pathway for Postgraduate Studies (EPPS).

Academic background and requirement

Taught 180 points:

You must have completed an undergraduate engineering degree at a recognised university (or similar institution), in a field similar to your intended specialisation.

You will need a GPE of 4.0 (65%-69.9%).

Other pathways to study

If you do not meet the GPE requirement, you can still gain entry by passing 60 points towards the Postgraduate Certificate in Engineering with a GPA of 4.0.

In exceptional circumstances, the university will consider you for entry if you have completed an undergraduate degree and have three years of work experience in engineering.  

Career opportunities

The university graduates have found employment in consulting engineering, environmental agencies, government departments. They also work as designers and advisers for many engineering projects. 

Some of the opportunities postgraduate study will prepare you for include:

  • Design, construction and maintenance of earth structures for highways, dams and urban developments
  • Construction of earthquake resistant structures in steel, concrete and timber
  • Use of water resources and protecting the environment
  • The supervision and management of large projects
