Overview

Master of Engineering Studies in Transportation Engineering

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 Transportation Engineering?

You can complete a Master of Engineering Studies in Transportation Engineering, a specialised programme built in conjunction with input from industry leaders.

The programme is particularly suitable if you have an approved bachelors degree in Civil Engineering, but is open to those with relevant qualifications in other areas of engineering or science. 

The skills are delivered at an advanced level and are applicable for both graduates and professionals with industry experience.

You will have the opportunity to develop an understanding of concepts and techniques fundamental to transportation engineering, which can then be used to approach current and future issues in the industry. Some of the core elements of the programme include:

Highway and transportation design, infrastructure asset management, pavement materials and management systems, planning and design of transportation facilities and, 

road safety and crash investigation, sustainable transport, traffic engineering, transport and land use planning, transport systems economics.

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 120 points:

You must have completed a four-year bachelors degree in engineering at a recognised university (or similar institution), in a field similar to your intended specialisation, that includes:

  • Broad coverage in your first year of the foundational science topics that underpin engineering disciplines: mathematical modelling, chemical and materials science, electrical engineering theory, mechanics, programming, and engineering design.  
  • One year of postgraduate-level study
  • A research project or dissertation comprising at least one-quarter of the final year.

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
