Course details

Summary

The Master of Science (MSc) programme enables you to pursue advanced study in your area of interest with the opportunity to work on independent research.

Programme overview

Studying for an MSc is an opportunity for committed scientists to focus on a relevant area of interest or practise and pursue an advanced qualification. While taught masters will provide you with specialist training in your chosen field, a research masters will develop advanced research skills, working alongside Faculty of Science researchers - many of whom are major contributors in their field. Late Year Semester will start in November.

120-point MSc

Most students enter an MSc following completion of a PGDipSci. You will need to complete 120 points (maximum of 160 points) in a specialisation within one year of full-time study or two years of part-time study (research masters) or four years of part-time study (taught masters). Not all specialisations offer both taught and research options.

240-point MSc

If you enter a MSc directly from an undergraduate degree you will need to complete 240 points (maximum of 280 points) in a specialisation in two years of full-time study or four years of part-time study (research masters) or six years of part-time study (taught masters). Not all specialisations offer both taught and research options.

Wine Science

Courses in the Wine Science programme examine the science of grape production and winemaking, and analytical techniques in winemaking.

You will have the opportunity to learn about the organisation and operation of the wine industry as a whole, and you will be encouraged to pursue a particular field of interest by completing a research project in wine science.

Areas of research interests open to exploration include:

  • Post-fermentation processes in winemaking
  • Sensory evaluation and statistical methods
  • The business of wine production
  • The science behind grape production
  • The science behind winemaking
  • Viticulture
  • Winemaking in a New Zealand setting
