Course details


The Master of Engineering Studies will provide students with a high-quality education in engineering within the New Zealand context, with a particular emphasis on the application of that knowledge to real-world industrial problems. A capstone project will allow students to demonstrate their understanding of the topics covered and its application in an industrial research setting, while the presentation of this project will enable them to demonstrate research expertise.

The programme is aimed at students wishing to gain experience in engineering practice before moving into the workforce, students who already have industrial experience and who wish to further develop their theoretical knowledge, and students who wish to develop further knowledge in a specialised area of engineering without a background in that area.

You should consider this degree if these are the kind of qualities you are looking for:

  • a thorough knowledge of the fundamental principles of engineering and an advanced ability to apply them to new complex, real-world industrial engineering problems.
  • a systems approach to the design, development, and management of engineering systems, and the ability to work in a team environment to solve problems at a variety of conceptual levels.
  • the knowledge and ability to become project leader or system designer in companies of any size.
  • the ability to learn independently and to identify when your knowledge of a problem is lacking, and potential places where such information can be gained.
