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.
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:
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.
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%).
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.
1_ Copy of birth certificate/passport
3_ Official programme completion certificate
4_ Mark sheets
5_ Relevant course outlines
6_ English language proficiency
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).
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.
