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.
Postgraduate courses that specialise in Polymer Engineering are designed for current industry professionals who wish to continue their studies at an advanced level, develop an advanced technical foundation and gain industrial perspective in a specialised area.
The courses have strong links to the New Zealand plastics industry, which are reflected in both lectures and the practical components.
The topics covered 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.
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.
The other alternative pathway into this programme is open to applicants with appropriate backgrounds and professional experience, including those with a Bachelor of Technology or a Bachelor of Science.
If you’re a current industry professional with a few years of experience, a postgraduate programme in Polymer Engineering aims to give you the specialised knowledge necessary for the next step on your career pathway.
Some of the intermediate and experienced roles this can lead to include:
