Master of Engineering Studies in Engineering Science

Enhance your employability in the competitive global market with a qualification that provides advanced technical foundations and industrial perspectives in your chosen field.

The MEngSt allows students with academic engineering backgrounds to expand their existing theoretical and practical skills.

What can you study in Engineering Science?

The Department of Engineering Science has an outstanding reputation for the quality of its research activities, with strong collaborative ties to the Geothermal Institute and the Auckland Bioengineering Institute.

The nature of this specialisation means that you’ll likely explore applications within major methodological areas, including Operations Research and Computational Mechanics. 

You’ll be equipped with problem-solving, modelling, analytical and computing skills that are relevant to many global industries. Some research areas include:

  • Network design and simulation
  • Vehicle routing for uncertain weather
  • Integer programming and applications
  • Treatment planning
  • Fluid flow in geothermal reservoirs
  • Wind-flow modelling for the design of wind farms
  • Petroleum reservoir engineering, such as well testing and reservoir simulation and characterisation

Programme structure

Taught:

This is available as either a 120 (1 year full-time) or 180-point (18 months full-time) programme. The option you pursue generally depends on your prior study.

Academic Requirements

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 (Engineering, Construction, Architecture or another similar discipline).

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.

English Language Academy pathway programmes

You can meet postgraduate English language requirements by successfully completing:
1_ The Foundation Certificate in English for Academic Purposes (FCertEAP), or
2_ The English Pathway for Postgraduate Studies (EPPS).


Career Opportunities

The university graduates are found in many of New Zealand’s leading companies, including Air New Zealand, Navman and Meridian Energy, as well as government organisations such as NIWA and Transpower, and consultancy firms like Beca and Maunsell. 

Many graduates also find fulfilling careers overseas. Engineering Science opens up opportunities within fields that require the modelling of optimal production processes, advanced programming skills, and logical thinking. 

So you may potentially see yourself in management or software design roles in the engineering, industrial, medical, service or business sector.
